2013 NASCAR fave? Jimmie Johnson

February 4, 2013 23 Comments

The clock is ticking. Racing season is drawing nigh.

We’re now inside three weeks until the green flag drops at Daytona, so let’s take a quick look at how our favorite drivers are going to do this season — at least in my opinion. You can tell me yours by leaving a post and/or voting in the poll at the right.

THIS YEAR’S NASCAR TOP 10

1. Jimmie Johnson: They’ll be calling him “Six-Time” after this year’s Chase.

2. Denny Hamlin: Another solid season, another close call and another season with no championship.

3. Brad Keselowski: There’s no way he wins two in a row, but NASCAR’s answer to Tony Dunker will make it exciing — again.

4. Dale Earnhardt Jr.: Junior will never win a championship, but this will be his best season to date.

5. Tony Stewart: I think Smoke has entered the autumn of his career. I don’t think there are any more titles left in the No. 14 car.

6. Jeff Gordon: The same goes for No. 24. I thought he would at least get to five championships, but unless Ray Evernham takes over as crew chief again it’s just not going to happen.

7. Kevin Harvick: He continues to be his own worst enemy.

8. Kasey Kahne: If just for once he could get off to a great start, he could sneak away with a championship.

9. Greg Biffle: The Biff will never be consistent enough to win a title.

10. Clint Bowyer: Arguably the most underrated driver in the Sprint Cup Series.

Miscellaneous

Jeff Burton

Biggest disappointment: Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth. Take your pick. It’s going to be a long year for both.

First major driver to lose his ride: Ryan Newman. Tony Stewart might finally run out of patience.

Most improved: Joey Logano. He’s still learning, just doing it in quicker fashion.

Fading fast: Jeff Burton. The glory days are long gone.

    Stevie, I think you left out a driver in your thoughts. I think Carl Edwards will be very strong this year. Best driver Roush/finway has right now. With Roush and Penske working together, I think the Ford camp will be very strong. Jack Roush stated that he was intrigued by how the Penske chassis were designed and that they were a lot different than his chassis. Two of the best working together, might be interesting.
    I vote for Ricky Stenhouse as rookie of the year. Two nation wide championships, kid should be good. Just my two cents.

    Four Fingers and a nub is not going for two hands this year stop drinking the kook-aid old man. Smoke may be a bit seasoned but he’s still got a full head of hair. He’s got a lot of winning left to do so just sit back and enjoy the show. lol

  3. Dave Moore says:

    Hey , the Fordracer man hit the nail right on the head. jaf and dirt are still living in lal lal land while riding on the turnip truck. Get real, the 2013 cup winner will be in a FORD.

  7. not carl edwards says:

    THE ONLY WAY CARL EDWARDS WINS A TITLE IS IF ALL THE CHEVIES STAY HOME.

  8. Fordracer says:

    Hahaha! Carl over the hill! That’s a good one and you have grandpa Gordon in your top ten.

    Stealth, I don’t know about a Franklin; that could go towards racing fund, but I’ll bet you a cold beer a Ford takes it home.

    Not Carl Edwards – Chevies might as well stay home because the fords have this! Just sayin’!

  11. Fordracer says:

    I drink Miller Lite! That’s all I need to say there. Dave you need to get in on this; you can bet with skipp unless skipp is a Ford fan; in that case you can buy each other a beer and call it good.

  12. Qcy Godfather says:

    Skipp I’d be willing to bet a tall one for you and a Diet Mountain Dew for me that Miss Danica don’t finish in the top 20 in points!

  13. just a fan says:

    Boys y’all know Fords are only good for one thing. Dirt. The only thing Ford will be 1st in this year is finishing behind the winner. While Carl looks good eating a sub he hasn’t been close enough to victory lane to flick a booger in it since Smoke stole his Mojo. It’s experienced oh you’re hair’s so fluffy year so enjoy. I’ll need that Bud Lite Cold fellas.

  14. Quincyracing says:
