The Top Ten

1 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Dale Earnhardt Jr. Ralph Dale Earnhardt Jr., known professionally as Dale Earnhardt Jr., Dale Jr., or just Junior, is an American professional stock car racing driver and champion team owner.

Jr. He only has one win but boy was it big. He snaps a 4 year losing streak. He also consistantly finishing in the top 3, top five, and top ten. I think Jr. Could bring home a championship this year. - nascar88

Die hard fan 4 life

2 Jimmie Johnson Jimmie Johnson Jimmie Kenneth Johnson is an American professional stock car racing driver and a six-time champion in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

5 championships in the past but in 2012 he's been doing OK. He's won a couple, and there is still a lot of pressure on him to bring home another championship to Hendrick Motorsports. - nascar88

3 Matt Kenseth Matt Kenseth

What can I say, quiet Matt Kenseth isn't so quiet anymore. First, he wins the Daytona 500, then got a little quiet then announces he will not be returning to Roush Fenway Racing next season and that he already has another ride set up for 2013, and gets the pole at Daytona, and dominated that race alongside teammate Greg Biffle, until the last lap, but still finished 3rd. He is also 1st in the point standings, and almost a definite for the chase. - nascar88

Matt Kenseth is awesome. That is all. - jbradbradley

4 Tony Stewart Tony Stewart Anthony Wayne Stewart, nicknamed Smoke, is an American former professional stock car racing driver and is currently a NASCAR team owner.

Tony Stewart won the championship last year and has came back this year with back to back wins and then another win at Daytona. He has had some bad luck this year but he could go get another championship this year. - nascar88

Smoke! Best of all time!

5 Kasey Kahne

Whoever did the list of NASCARs worst drivers and put this guy 5th? Come on. He was quiet at the beginning of the new season with his new team but after that first win, he's been on a tear. - nascar88

6 Kyle Busch Kyle Busch

He won the championship and he missed half the year! He should be #1! - snailslug4

A couple wins or one win, all I can say. - nascar88

7 Brad Keselowski Brad Keselowski

Bad Brad. 3 wins already this season and we are just halfway through it. To being out of the chase at the last part of last season and storming back to get in it and finish like 5th. That's awesome. Then being promoted to their biggest driver a Penske. This young gun has a lot coming for him the future. - nascar88

He won the cup last year he is awesome

8 Jeff Gordon Jeff Gordon Jeffery Michael Gordon is an American former professional stock car racing driver, currently an announcer for Fox NASCAR, and a top executive for Hendrick Motorsports.

The rainbow warrior is the best driver safest driver and does so much for so many and a great person and roll model

Bad luck had gotten to him. That's it I suppose. - nascar88

9 Greg Biffle

The Biff. All I can say is the Biff is doing good with Kenseth in the points and on the track. - nascar88

He is awwesome
