2008 Driver Profiles: No. 1-20


About 20 drivers have a legitimate shot to win a race no matter where NASCAR goes; not coincidentally, this "elite" group is comprised totally of drivers from multi-car teams. Inside our top 20, you'll find four Hendrick Motorsports drivers, four from Roush-Fenway Racing, three from Joe Gibbs Racing, three from Richard Childress Racing, two from Penske Racing and one each from DEI, Evernham-Gillett Motorsports, Ganassi Racing and Petty Enterprises. These are the superstars of Sprint Cup, the only drivers who've got legitimate chances to make the Chase for the Championship, and the anchors of your fantasy team. Get at least two of 'em. Three, if possible.
