Josh Wise is hoping to repeat his performance from last year’s Geico 500 when he finished 10th after starting 34th at Talladega SuperSpeedway.
Wise has been stronger at Talladega than Daytona International Speedway, but he has not always been completely solid in race trim on the restrictor-plate, superspeedways. He failed to race his way into the past two Daytona 500s. Apr 25 - 5:51 PM

One thing is guaranteed at Richmond International Raceway this week: 2016 will be better for Josh Wise than 2015 was. Last year, he failed to qualify the No. 30 in the fall and was 42nd with an engine failure in the spring.

None of that is a glowing recommendation for starting the fifth-year drivers who has yet to crack the top 25 on this track. Wait until this team gets more seasoning before considering them for the last spot on a roster.

Josh Wise simply needs to be running at the end of the Food City 500 to count the race as a success. He has either failed to qualify or failed to finish four of his last five short track races.

Two of his DNFs were for engine failure, including two weeks ago at Martinsville Speedway. If he keeps running, he could earn some place-differential points via attrition.

Josh Wise finished 39th at Atlanta Motor Speedway and 35th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway earlier this year, but he is getting seat time on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. In his career, he has failed to qualify on them 16 percent of the time.

NASCAR’s smaller fields are changing the landscape of competition. It is too soon to tell, but drivers like Wise may actually develop into better values because they can work on race trim during the weekend with less stress involved trying to make the field. Do not start him at Texas, but watch the No. 30 in practice and qualification.

The Motorsports Group announced that Crawfest New Braunfels and the City of New Braunfels (Texas) will serve as sponsors of the team's No. 30 Chevrolet entry for the upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event at Texas Motor Speedway.

The logos of the festival and city it is held in will adorn the No. 30 Crawfest New Braunfels Chevrolet piloted by Josh Wise for the running of the Duck Commander 500 on Saturday night April 9, 2016 at the 1.5-mile Texas track.-Integrity Sports Marketing

David Ragan has spent only 38.5 percent of his time on the lead lap, according the NASCAR Statistical Services. In the 1,315 laps run, he has been with the leader for only 506 circuits.

Ragan has the experience to run better, but the team is not quite up to snuff. The only drivers he has outperformed in this category at Josh Wise (with 7.9%), Chris Buescher (19.6%), and Cole Whitt (22.8). Michael Annett rounds out the bottom five with 39.2 percent.

With an average finish of 36.0 in four starts so far this season, Josh Wise sits at the bottom of that ranking.

It will take some time before fantasy owners are ready to risk an allocation on Wise and the No. 30 team. They have not even earned very many place-differential points with an average improvement of only 1.5 spots.

Josh Wise has been coming to his home state of California since 2012, but he has yet to earn a top-35 in four starts.

With only 39 cars in attendance, this would seem to be an easy task, but the No. 30 Curtis Key car has been one of the slowest each week.

Josh wise has made two previous starts in the No. 98 Premium Motorsports Chevrolet and he has finished in the lows 30s each time. He will aim for a slightly better result this week and try to land in the top 30.

With only 39 cars entered, he could finish that well through attrition. His consistency has allowed him to finish at least 10 spots ahead of the last-place car in the past two races.

A mid-season change from the No. 98 team put Josh Wise in a vulnerable position. After scoring a top-10 at Talladega for one team his results began to slip and a 43rd in his final run with them led to a driver change. Wise failed to qualify at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in his first of eight attempts in the No. 32.

NASCAR is often about chemistry. When drivers have it, they are seemingly unstoppable, but it is hard to replace when it goes away.

Jimmie Johnson finished ahead of Josh Wise in nearly every 2015 Cup race they entered, and he was in the lead once more during the off-season. Johnson ran a half-marathon last weekend in one hour, 27 minutes and beat Wise to the rope by about two minutes.

The equipment was the same as both just had their two legs. As in NASCAR, these two athletes outpaced most of the competition as the cream rose to the top.

Josh Wise and Jeb Burton shared the distinction for being penalized most often for having their crew members over the wall too soon. Each driver was penalized four times, according to NBC Sports’ Dustin Long.

Kurt Busch was third this on this list with three infractions, and he was joined by some notably strong teams with two penalties—including Greg Biffle, Kevin Harvick, Jimmie Johnson, and Joey Logano.

Josh Wise (#32 Zak Products Ford Fusion) finished 39th in the November 22nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The GoFAS Racing driver started 32nd in the lineup and completed 247 laps of the 267-lap event. Wise, who competed in 24 of the season's 36 races, scored one top-10 and closed out the season 37th in the final 2015 Sprint Cup Series driver championship standings.

Josh Wise will qualify the No. 32 Frank Stoddard Ford this week and that will be his eighth attempt in that ride. Wise has also shown up at the track in Mike Curb’s No. 98, the No. 30 of Curtis Key, the No. 34 of Front Row Motorsports, and the No. 26 of BK Racing.

Wise is getting a variety of experience this way by learning the different systems of each team. He has also been in situations where he needed to qualify on time or go home, and he missed the show five times—three of these in the No. 32. While Wise is gaining experience, he has rarely been a great fantasy value with only one top-25 to his credit in 2015.

Josh Wise hopes that lightning will strike the same place twice. He his only career top-10 came this May in the Geico 500.

Wise was in the No. 98 that week, but he will move into the No. 34 this weekend and have some help from teammates at Front Row Motorsports. He has 13 plate races under his belt, including several with this organization, so the chemistry should be immediate. He cannot be expected to score a top-10, but a top-20 is well within reach and that would make him one of the best values in almost any game.
