Top 10 Drivers That Should Replace Danica Patrick at SHR

Danica Patrick isn't going to be in NASCAR for much longer if she keeps running like she has. These are the Top 10 drivers that should replace her at Stewart-Haas racing when that happens in either 2014 or 2015.

The Top TenXW

1David Ragan

After his performance in the duels, he took a wrecked race car and put it into the Daytona 500. Danica didn't do bad either

While it took a while for him to win, when he finally did he got fired by Roush in the same season. 2 years later, he takes Front Row Motorsport to a win at Talladega. He's talented, and could win many more races in the 10 car.

2Landon Cassill

He's a great driver. But has spent his entire career in bottom tier equipment except for one year at Hendrick in the Nationwide series. He almost scored a win at Talladega in the Spring. No doubt he can win races in that car.

3Regan Smith

Raced at Furniture Row, a bottom level team and managed to win a race. He's doing great in the Nationwide series in Jr Motorsports equipment. If he goes to SHR, he could win a lot of races and maybe a championship for them.

4Sam Hornish Jr.

He almost takes Penske to a Nationwide title in 2013, and Penske repays him by firing him. Nice guy. He was rushed into the Cup Series, to be fair, and could win Cup races in SHR equipment.

5Mark Martin

He helps Danica at the team now. He's wasting his time. He should be driving 10 car, I think he could win more races in it.

6Travis Kvapil

Has never been in good equipment. And when he was, he won a truck series title in 2003 for that team. He could win races in that 10 car. He has the talent to do it.

7David Reutimann

He was at MWR for a couple years when they were a bottom level team at got them 2 wins. I'm not even sure where he is in NASCAR now. He could score many more wins in the 10 car.

8Michael McDowell

Could do some good things with a top notch team.

9Carl Edwards

He's leaving Roush at the end of 2014, if Tony dumps Danica and brings on Edwards, he could put all 4 SHR cars in the Chase and maybe get a few championships out of Edwards.

10Ryan Blaney

The Contenders

11Johanna Long

She is a great driver with lots of wins on dirt. Though she may want to spend a year in the Nationwide series first. When Chase Elliot goes to the Cup series in the next few years, maybe Jr. could let her drive the 9 car and then Stewart could move her into the 10 car in the Cup series.

12Alex Bowman
13Dave Blaney

Has gotten so close to winning, but can never seem to do it. Probably because he was never in good equipment. Put him in the 10 car and those wins could happen at last.

Why is he on this list? His son Ryan Blaney is a way better fit than him

14Denny Hamlin

He's done good with JGR equipment and I think he will do much better with Hendrick horsepower and with teammates like Kevin,Kurt, and Tony he might be a contender for the title too
