WHAT WENT RIGHT:Â Enjoyed the best single season performance of his Cup career, with one win and career highs for top 5s and top 10s.
WHAT WENT WRONG: Struggled somewhat in qualifying, with an average start of 12.3, his lowest per-race average start since 14.9 in 2016. Also tied for second-lowest season in lead-lap finishes (23).
WHAT TO EXPECT IN 2020: Is ready for a breakout season. Has to improve number of wins (has averaged just one in each of the last three seasons) and consistency. Never could accumulate more than three top 10s in a row in 2019.
