ESPN.com writers Terry Blount, Ed Hinton, Ryan McGee, David Newton and Marty Smith and editors Joe Breeze and K. Lee Davis voted on where they thought NASCAR's top 12 drivers would finish the Sprint Cup season. A first-place vote is worth 12 points, a 12th-place vote is worth one. A new driver will be revealed every day from Feb. 7-18.

Click on each driver in the top 12 and you will find updated outlook entries on each of their seasons.

Not every driver that received a vote made the top-12 cut. Here are the best of the rest.
