Zach Osborne, Joey Savatgy, Justin Hill, and Aarron Plessinger are all legit and I think will do damage next year.

7- Top 10 consistently, couple top 5's, maybe a podium or two
16- I think he will be a championship level speed and consistency guy right off the bat
17- Top 10 consistently, run in the top 5 a decent amount, couple podium
46- Show tremendous speed and consistency, a lot of top 5's, and a lot outside top 10

I feel like Savatgy is going to surprise a lot of people, just going off of how fast he was at MEC.

7, 46, 16, 17
I've been wrong before.

Hill will have the best finishes of the rookies and also some of the worst finishes. The others will fill the gap in between.

Got this little gut feeling. Hill will be the next STEWART!!! Not in regards to speed and records but as the new guy that finds all the crazy quad lines that nobody else will do. He will bring the term “QUAD” back into the picture and I’m excited about that it’s sorta died down last few years.

People are too high on Zach I think. His bully type mentality won’t work in the big class

Something tells me that he already knows that and will come in with a different mentality.

Kind of my point...his success in the 250s came from adjusting his style to be the bully of the class...if he changes his approach I think his results will suffer. If he try’s to push dudes around that will end equally as poorly.

But I’m obviously no expert

AP will be the best overall. I could see him top 5 at the end of the year. Hill will be good at qualifying and be around the top 10 most of the year. Osborne shows top 5 speed but also crashes the most out of these 4. JS17 could surprise but I see him riding anywhere from 7-12 most of the year.
