On October 15, 2015, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) veteran Johnny Sauter announced he would be joining GMS Racing (GMS) for the 2016 season in an effort to claim his first NCWTS championship.

After reuniting with former crew chief and longtime friend Joe Shear Jr. in June, Sauter racked up 12 top-10 finishes in 13 starts leading into the first race of the second round of the inaugural Chase for the NCWTS Championship. In his 13th NCWTS season, Sauter raised the championship trophy alongside his family and a team that had just completed its third full-time season in NASCAR. Sauter has found a home with GMS and will return in 2017 to defend not only his win at Daytona International Speedway, but his NCWTS Championship as well. He will continue to build on the Sauter-Shear legacy, a history that started in the Midwest with their fathers competing against each other.

GMS Racing (GMS) announced that, beginning in 2017, the team will compete full-time in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) with driver Spencer Gallagher.

The Las Vegas native will continue to the pilot the No. 23, a number that he has raced since 2006 in honor of former NASCAR driver TJ Clark and his son, Spencer Clark. Gallagher has been with GMS since 2014, first competing in the ARCA Racing Series and most recently the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Over three seasons and 58 starts, he earned three top-fives, 15 top-10 finishes, and two pole awards. He made his NXS debut this past season, earning a best finish of eighth place at Daytona (July). The team debuted the GMS Chevrolet Camaro at Phoenix with a goal of building the program in preparation of running a full-time season in 2017.

Monster Energy has signed a deal to become the title sponsor of NASCAR’s premiere series, according to NBC’s Dustin Long.

Few details are available, including what the series will actually be called. It is likely that "Cup" will be dropped from the name, which will be a departure from a tradition that dates back to the first time the series had a title sponsor in the early 1971. Jimmie Johnson will be the final NASCAR Sprint Cup champion.

Jamie McMurray scored 12 top-10s in 2016, but only two of these were top-fives.

McMurray made the Chase based mostly on consistency, but he was unable to score a top-10 in the final 10 races of the season. His closest to that mark was an 11th at Chicagoland Speedway, but he remained a decent fantasy value most of the season with 29 top-20s (.806).

Brian Scott finished better than he started in his last eight Cup races despite announcing his retirement from driving.

With the weight of this decision off his shoulders, he seemed to improve. Scott came one position shy of winning his first Cup race as a Rookie of the Year contender when he finished second to Joey Logano at Talladega SuperSpeedway. His final race was also successful with a 15th in the Ford 400.
Dec 1 - 3:25 PM

Joey Gase made six starts in 2016 in the No. 32 Go Fas Racing ride and was running at the end of all of them

More importantly, Gase finished better than he started in five of those races, but his impact on fantasy rosters was minimized by the fact that his best finish of the season was only 32nd well back in March.
Dec 1 - 3:24 PM

Carl Edwards scored the eighth-best average finish of the 2016 season with a 13.86.

Those results were mostly front-loaded with eight top-10s in the first nine weeks that included two victories. Once his position in the Chase was firmly established, he struggled through the rest of the regular season and well into the Chase until a victory at Texas Motor Speedway put him back on the right track. Another strong run at Homestead-Miami Speedway in the final almost won the championship.

Jimmy Johns has extended its relationship with Stewart-Haas Racing for a "multi-year" primary sponsorship on Kevin Harvick’s No. 4 Chevrolet, according to a press release from SHR.

The sponsorship will kick off in 2017 with the Daytona 500 and includes 15 other races. Jimmy Johns will be an associate sponsor for the rest of the season. Money equals speed.

Four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon, who was part of the driver lineup when Wayne Taylor Racing (WTR) competed in its very first race in 2007, returns to drive the all-new No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R.

He joins full-time co-drivers Ricky and Jordan Taylor and veteran Italian Max "The Ax" Angelelli for next month’s 55th Rolex 24 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship 2017 season opener. Gordon co-drove to a solid podium finish in his only career sportscar event – the 2007 Rolex 24 At Daytona – alongside Angelelli, Jan Magnussen and team owner and three-time sportscar racing champion Wayne Taylor in the No. 10 WTR prototype. The No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R team has been a fixture on the Rolex 24 podium in recent years, finishing second in 2013, 2014 and 2016 and crossing the finish line third in 2015 before being penalized for a drive-time violation one week later.-True Speed Communication

Austin Dillon advanced to the second round of the Chase, but he was only able to score back-to-back top-10s three times during the season.

One of his doubles came in October at Kansas Speedway and Talladega SuperSpeedway. He had another top-10 two weeks previous, but that was not enough to allow him to advance to round three. Dillon ended the season with two sub-35th-place results in the last three weeks and will need to regain momentum during the off-season.
Nov 29 - 8:16 PM

Aric Almirola struggled to find momentum in 2016 and was never able to complete more than eight consecutive races.

Almirola’s season was marked by five DNFs (did not finish) and one blown engine. None of those came in consecutive weeks; instead they were spread fairly evenly through the year and kept the No. 43 from gaining momentum. His last accident came at Kansas in October and it was followed by his only top-10 of the year. An eighth at Talladega SuperSpeedway was the last time in 2016 that he finished on the lead lap.

With the sale of its charter to the No. 95 Leavine Family Racing team, Regan Smith and Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) will cease operations before 2017.

There were a few high points for TBR in 2016, but they must have sensed the writing was on the wall and they would be in jeopardy of finishing in the bottom three for three consecutive years, which would trigger the loss of their charter. Smith earned only nine top-25s, but all of those came with positive place-differential points. Altogether, fantasy owners are going to get more bang for their buck from the new chartered entity.
Nov 29 - 8:15 PM

Clint Bowyer finished better than he started on 29 occasions in 2016, which was a percentage of .806.

On average, he improved slightly more than seven positions including the five races in which he fell back. On three occasions—at Talladega SuperSpeedway (May), Bristol Motor Speedway (April), and Daytona International Speedway (July)—he finished among the top 10 after starting deep in the field in the 30s.
Nov 29 - 8:13 PM

Josh Wise qualified in 28 of 31 attempts and made the most of his opportunities by keeping the No. 30 running at the end of 20 of those races.

None of his failures to finish suggest starting and parking, which means this team did the very best they could each week. Wise scored one top-25 when he advanced 16 spots at Kentucky Speedway in July and he had two other results just outside that mark. His two close calls came at Pocono Raceway and Watkins Glen.
