2020 Fantasy Outlook
As of mid-January this team's plans have not been announced. Decker raced the majority of the schedule last season with only a few spot starts by other drivers. It was nothing short of a tough affair for Decker. Her first full season in the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series was a struggle from start to finish. Nine of her 19 starts ended in DNF's, mostly as a result of crashes. The Top-20 finishes were few and far between with just six for the season. The 22.2 average finish led to a 19th-place finish in the final driver standings. If Decker returns to this team in 2020 they face an uphill battle to help her race more competitively on a weekly basis. - January update - signed with Niece Motorsports to make a handful of starts in the team's No. 44 Chevrolet.

Gander Outdoors Truck
February 15, 2020
Niece Motorsport's Decker was grinning widely before she even arrived at the many microphones and reporters ready to interview the Wisconsin driver following her historical run in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season-opener Friday night at Daytona International Speedway, NASCAR Wire Service reports.
ANALYSIS
The 22-year-old driver of the No. 44 Chevy truck lasted to the end Friday night at Daytona. Decker made some great moves late and avoided the carnage of the "big one". Her savvy moves paid off and Decker came home fifth-place in Friday's NextEra Energy 250. It was the best finish ever for a female driver in truck series history. "It was so amazing to be able to come here after last year when we were on fire on the first lap and come here and get a top five. I just think it's incredible and I'm just so proud of my team and myself," Decker said.

DraftKings NASCAR: 2019 Truck Series Rankings

Mark Taylor ranks the top drivers in the Truck Series as Brett Moffitt will look to defend his championship after shocking the NASCAR world last season.
2019 Fantasy Outlook
This team will be an interesting outfit to watch in 2019. Both Decker and Alfredo are young rising talents in the stock car racing world. Decker made her big splash in the ARCA Series last year, piloting Venturini Motorsport's No. 25 Toyota to nine Top-10 finishes and a surprising seventh-place final spot in the driver standings. Alfredo was a big contender in the K&N Pro Series East last year. He captured one victory and nine Top 10's en route to a fifth-place points finish. This young duo will roughly split time in the DGR/Crosley No. 54 Toyota Tundra. Neither driver has any experience in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series, but both have budding talent. That combined with a good race team, strong sponsorship package, and a veteran crew chief in Bono Manion, should add up to some surprisingly good performances.
