Kyle Larson

Kyle is in his third year as a sprint cup driver in his rookie season. Kyle won rookie of the year award in 2014 and 2015. Kyle is one of the few people to win back to back rookie of the year awards in the sprint cup series. A fun fact about Kyle Larson is he is the second shortest driver in the sprint cup series. Kyle has 29 top tens in the hardest racing circuit. Which is really successful. He is still looking for his career win but he has been close a number of times, he has finished second in 7 races already. Larson got his first test of the sprint cup series. He ran for Clint boywer while he was on suspension for getting in an altercation with Jeff Gordon. Kyle is a very successful driver that will win a lot of races when he finally breaks the win and wins a race. Kyle will definitely be a big competitor in the sprint cup series as long as he stays with it.

Erik started racing in 2014 and finished 8th in the points in the NASCAR Busch series, which is the best any rookie has ever done in that series. Then in 2015 he goes on and wins the 2015 Camping world truck series. Also the youngest competitor to do that in this series as well. He also made his NASCAR sprint cup series debut when Matt kenseth got a 4 race suspension. Erik did really well racing for him, he averaged 12 place finish in those 4 races which is really good considering he is a rookie in the hardest division of NASCAR. Erik is going to be the next biggest racer in this generation. Erik has only been racing for this will be his 3rd season and already has 10 wins in his NASCAR career which is amazing most people go a couple seasons without breaking the top ten let alone winning a race. Erik races for the Kyle Busch motorsports which is one of the best racers in the Busch series to ever race. He will be in a full time Sprint cup car next year. Erik is one of the best rookies to be racing now and will be very successful and win a lot of races as a NASCAR racer.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the age of 41 has had quiet a career so far. Dale has won 2 Daytona 500's one in 2004 and another one in 2014. He won the two biggest races of his life exactly ten years apart. He has won the most popular driver thirteen time in a row starting in (2003-2015). I believe the only reason that he is the most popular driver is because of his name he has not won to many races but the ones he has one supposedly make him great. Dale is known to have a net worth of 300 million dollars. So he is possibly the most expensive man ever in the history of NASCAR. Dale has 26 wins in his 18 year long career, so really no that many wins. He also has 249 top ten appearances in his sprint cup series career, along with 13 poles. Dales early career started when he went to high performance school when he was 17. Also at the same time he was going to school he was still running a full time street stock dirt car. Dale moved up through modified's and he was discovered and brought into the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.At that time he started moving up through the NASCAR ranks until he got into the highest category which is what he is currently in known as the Sprint Cup series. Dale is an OK driver that got into NASCAR because of his daddy being good and they were hoping that he would be just half as good as his dad. Which no one in the history of NASCAR will ever be able to do what Dale's dad did in such a short amount of time.

Clint Bowyer has only 2 poles in his sprint cup career, but he is a very competitive driver that is always there battling for the win almost every week. In 2008 Clint raced the sprint cup and the Busch series full time he won numerous races throughout the year between both series. Clint is a great driver that still has a lot of years left racing and will be competitive the whole time he is in the series. Clint is going to take over the number 20 car that Tony Stewart is driving this year. He will be very good when he switches to the number 20 car, he will probably be one of the best races out there next year.

He then has nearly won the 2011 sprint cup series when at the end of 36 races he ended in a tiebreaker with tony Stewart. Tony won the tie breaker which was whoever won the most races that year. Tony was dominant that year and but so was Carl tony won five of the last 10 races. So that tells you who the two dominant people where that race season. Carl is the one and only person who is known for when he wins he does a back flip off of his car. He is known as a celebrity because he is the only person that actually does that after every race he wins. Carl has 38 career wins and and has 174 career top tens in the sprint cup series.

Ryan Newman

Ryan is one of the longest active driver in NASCAR as of today. He has always been known as Ryan the "rocket man" Newman. He drives the number 31 Chevy for Richard Childress Racing. He has 17 career wins in the Chevy company and also 214 top tens. He has won 51 career poles. Poles are very hard to get that means you are the fastest driver to qualify that week. In the year 2002 Ryan won a career 5 poles in on season and there is on 36 races in a year. That is a very impressive task to do most people can not even win a pole. The bad thing about qualifying is when you qualify on the pole there is a 90 percent chance that you wont win the race. It is just very bad chance that you will win it is just a known fact. Most of race car driver dont like to here that but that is just a fact. In 2010 Ryan broke a 78 winless streak at his home track at the brickyard. The brickyard is one the hardest races to win just like the Daytona 500 just because it is a long race and a big racetrack. Ryan has had a great career and still has a great career ahead of him.

Denny Hamlin

Denny Hamlin drives the number 11 Toyota Camry for the Joe Gibbs race team. He started his racing career in go-karts at age seven. He was very successful in go-karts winning many championships but when he got done driving go-karts he moved to late models in 2004. He signed up for the developmental driving program for Joe Gibbs racing. The developmental driver program is a great program that allows people to drive at no cost for awhile. It is so the owners can watch the driver to see how he drives and how talented. Denny started his NASCAR Sprint cup series in 2007. He finished in 28th in his First Daytona 500 he drove in. Denny won his third career race in New Hampshire. Denny is one of the very few people in the history of NASCAR to win a race that early in his career. Most of the people say a rookie should not win in his first season because they could get to confident and go into a drought when they don't win for awhile. It happened to Trevor Bayne in 2010 when he won his first career NASCAR race ever which was also the biggest race of anyone's career and now Trevor has went 5 years without a win. Denny is still very young and has had a successful career already. Denny will continue racing in the Sprint Cup series because he is a great driver with a lot of talent and he will continue to win races for the rest of his career.

Tony Stewart

Tony Stewart is one of the best drivers ever in the sport of NASCAR. Tony is a 3 time sprint cup championship. Tony has won a championship in every class or divsion he has raced. That is why they call him one of the best drivers ever. Tony started his career in these little cars called quarter midgets. Tony has won 6 championships in the quarter midgets and also he raced go carts. In 1995 tony won the 4- crown nationals which is the highest goal a sprint car driver could ever dream of doing. In 2009 tony started to run his own sprint cup team with gene has and that is when he switched from the number 20 to 14.Tony says he only has one goal left to do and that is win the biggest race of NASCAR and that is the Daytona 500. This will not happen because he is having surgery on his back and will not be back till the beginning of April the Daytona 500 is in one week. You can judge him because he has not won one of those because he has one of the best careers that anyone has ever had in the sport of NASCAR.

NASCAR Driver Dale Earnhardt

This next NASCAR driver I am talking about is the best NASCAR driver ever and this is Dale Earnhardt Senior. Dale is the best NASCAR driver to ever go through the NASCAR series. Dale is my second favorite driver ever right after Matt Kenseth. Dale started his career in 1975 when the Winston Cup series was still in progress. As of 2002 the Winston Cup series was changes to sprint cup series. Dale one his first Daytona 500 in 1998. He also one 7 Winston Cup series championships. He is tied for winning the most championships ever with the king of NASCAR Richard Petty. Dale was known as The Intimidator because of his aggressive driving style. Dale died at age 49. He died doing the one thing he loved to do was in a race car. Dale died in 2001 in the 2001 Daytona 500, he wrecked and had a major skull fracture. All of the medical officials say he died on impact but everyone knows that he sat there a minute before he died from a brain bleed.

Matt Kenseth

This first blog is over my favorite NASCAR driver in the sport. The driver is Matt Kenseth he won the rookie of the year award in 2000. He also won his first Winston Cup points in 2003 what he was still a rookie at least that is what NASCAR considered him. Back then he raced against the best drivers ever in NASCAR. In 2009 he won his first ever Daytona 500 which is the biggest race in NASCAR. It was one of the very few Daytona 500 races that actually was rain-shortened do to whether. Then Matt Kenseth came back and won another Daytona 500 in 2012. He became one of the few NASCAR drivers that has ever won a Daytona 500 let alone 2 Daytona 500's. Matt had a son in 1993 that is now in the NASCAR series. He is starting out in the Infinity series which is the slowest and easiest to race in. That is Matt Kenseth's biography over the years that he raced.
