Top Ten Most Underrated NASCAR DriversDrivers that aren't recognized for all they truly are.
Replaced Dale Jr? Please... I like Regan as much as the next guy but if anyone its Kasey Kahne, he is easily the worst driver on Hendrick, but sure lets replace a guy with 26 wins and a top ten driver every race with Regan Smith... no thanks.
Regan actually in my opinion is very talented! He deserved more (good) opportunities in NASCAR!
Regan Smith is a great driver who kept a low budget team up front. He should've been kept at Hendrick Motorsports and replaced Dale Jr.
Should be full time in Cup Series right now.
Undoubtedly the best driver never to win a championship. Humble, and physically and mentally fit. Fantastic at oval tracks, which is showcased by the fact that he's the only 5 time IROC Series champion in history. Running partial seasons in the Busch series, he commanded a team that consistently dominated races. Runner up so many times and by such small margin, even his fellow racers consider him to be champion quality.
The only thing that we remember about Mark Martin was that he celebrated too early at Bristol, but he's one hell of a driver
This guy is the oldest guy racing at the cup level. And yet he's still constantly in contention for wins.
He really deserved a title. Best driver who never won a championship by a landslide.
Some people clearly don't know the difference between "underrated" and "overrated". Bayne is overrated.
That is very true I also think Bayne should go to Sprint Cup - michaelwalton
This guy is an amazing driver. He rarely finishes below 20th. And, he's also won the Daytona 500. He should've gone cup instead of Ricky Stenhouse Jr. - CrackersInJuly
Even to this day I don't understand why Bayne isn't driving for Roush in the 17. Stenhouse should've stayed a bit longer.
He deserved to be in a Penske car
Should have gone to Penske in the #22 instead of that moron LogaNO - mister83e
Anoother Regan Smith story. - CrackersInJuly
They say he doesn't have it anymore. Tell that to this season- a win, and aside from 2 wrecks (Talladega and the All Star Race) his worst finish is 13th. Need I say more?
Mr. Gordon is put down way too much. He is a 4 time champ with 84 wins and counting. That's the most in NASCAR's modern era. The facts say it all. - CrackersInJuly
Jeff has been the face of gentlemanly sportsmanship and yet others continue to put him down! His charities show what a caring man he truly is.
The guy may not have won much, but he runs a great team and is posibly the best plate racer in the sport. - CrackersInJuly
The guy may be a hothead like his brother, but you have to admit. The temper isn't the only thing that was passed over between the two. They both could drive a ball of dirt to the win any day. - CrackersInJuly
This guy has the courage to drive the famed #3. He's also won in it twice. He deserves a cup ride. - CrackersInJuly
I'm gonna agree that he is underrated but he is the Justin Haley of the Cup Series. You aren't changing my mind on that.
The son of Dave. He is a great racer and yet still doesn't have a full time cup ride.
He is such a great racer and I think he'll win before Chase Elliot
He can beat anyone on the field but NASCAR does not look at him as a good driver they ignore him a lot he knows how to win he's done it 4 times but they don't look at him good
How much last place finishes has he got? tell me. - UltraGamer
Is a good.. very good racer. in his position in life 999.9% of us would have failed at any thing. he is a very nice person.. rare today
Soon he will be overrated no one cared for him till 2017
Doing a great job so far this year in the #78 car
He is just on a God aful team. If he stayed wit MWR, he would be good
He finally got the recognition he deserves when he got the championship last year, but has deserved it all along. What can I say? The guy is an awesome driver.
Even though he got busted in a drug test he still is a talented driver and should be given a chance to race sprint
He is a great driver, and he is a good driver on a bad team
Winning with a JTG Car in Watkins Glen. Got the chance to win Indy 500. Great Ringer, and he deserves to be in 2015 Chase
Results speak for themselves. Competitive everywhere in anything. Love him or hate him, you can’t deny his talent.
This guy is one of the most talented drivers ever.
This guys a beast
One of the most talented drivers ever... if you take out Petty, Pearson, Earnhardt, Johnson, Gordon, Stewart, DW, Allison, Harvick, Kenseth, and about 30 others.
A great talent. Hasn't been on a decent Cup team to showcase it yet. Even though he was with JGR, his team lead by Zipidelli was a joke.
Can't wait for vegas!
He is one of the most consistent drivers out there. When he drove for hendrick he was good!
His average finishes for last season are unreal, he is truely underrated.
Now I'm not a fan of Larson but like him or not, he is easily one of the best drivers not only in NASCAR, but in the world.
Nascar doesn't respect him like they should. He will show them in 2020!
653 races with no win. I do feel for his family. He died.
R.I. P J. D McDuffie
Contantly fishs 15 I peice of crap car, even beat danica patrick in points when he start and parked it half the time
Two career wins and a near Chase appearance in 2008, yet still drives with the low-budget Front Row Motorsports, with whom he last won with at Talladega in 2013.
Pfft he's overrated not underrated
Hasn't won a cup race yet as of 2-17-18 but in two years has finished in the top 5 1/3 of his races and top 10 2/3 of the time. Not to mention he's only in his early 20s. Will be a champ before it's all said and done
