2013 Nationwide Series Driver Preview part one..

Note: sponsorship can change at any time.

01--Mike Wallace--JC Mortorsports
Had A Full season in 2012 with only one top ten to finish 12th place in the points. Sponosrship is not known at this time. I say he gets at most 2 top tens this season to finish around 12-15th place in the points.

2--Brian Scott--Richard Childress Racing
Finished ninth place in the points with 11 top tens and no wins. Shore Lodge will sponsor this car. I say he does not really improve much at all. He will get 10-12 top tens with no wins and finish 8-10th place in the points.

3--Austin Dillion--Richard Childress Racing
Austin Dillon had 2 wins in 2012 with 27 top tens to finish third place in the points. Advocare will be back to sponsor this car. I sat he gets 25-27 top tens with a couple of wins to finish third to fifth place in the points.

5--Kasey Kahne And Brad Sweet--Jr. Motorsports
This car was driven once last season at Jr. and it won the race. These drivers will have Great Clips as a sponsor for 28 races. Brad had 18 starts last year with two top tens. Kasey though had only 15 starts with nine top tens. I say Kasey gets at least one win and 8-10 top tens while While Brad picks up five top tens and no wins in the car.

6--Trevor Bayne--Roush Fenway
Had only six starts in 2012 with three top tens. Cargill will sponsor this car. I say he picks off 4-6 wins in 2013 with 25-28 top tens to finish first to third place in the standings.

7--Regan Smith--Jr. Motorsports.
Had only one race in 2012, but he won the race. Will be in for a full season of racing with TaxSlayer as a sponsor. I say he gets a couple of wins. With 20-2 top tens to finish 4-6 sixth place in the standings.

I will have more driver previews up later on this week...
