2013 Nationwide Series Driver Preview Part Three..

20--Brian Vickers--Joe Gibbs Racing

This car is going the full season with Dollar General as a sponsor. Brian only had one race in this car last year with a second place finish. I say this car gets 4-6 wins in this car with at least 25 top tens to finish first to third place in the standings.

22--Ryan Blaney, Brad Keselowski, and more--Penske Racing

This car had various drivers in 2012 to complete a full season of racing. Brad had 21 races in the car last season with 3 wins. I can see brad in the car for 15-20 races and getting 2-4 wins. Ryan was in the car last year for seven races. I see Ryan getting more seat time in the car for the 2013 and will pick up 3-5 top tens with no wins.

31--Justin Allgaier--Turner Motorsports

Picked off one win in 2012 with 19 top tens in order to finish sixth place In the points. BRANDT will be back to sponsor this car for most of the season. I( say he can pick one win, no more than two. He will get 18-20 top tens to finish the season 6-8th place in the points.

39--Jefferey Earnhardt--Go Green Racing

He had only six races in 2012 with a best finish of 28th place. He is expected to go0 a full season, but no sponsorship has been announced yet. This car will get a few top twenty places at best to finish 16-18th place in the points.

43--Michael Annett--Richard Petty Motorsports

Michael Annett finished 5ith place in the points last season with 17 top tens and no wins. Flying J / Pilot Travel centers will be the sponsor for this car again. I say he gets 17-20 top ten finishes with no wins again to finish 5-7th place in the standings.

Okay I have one most set of Nationwide Series drivers to upload that are expected to go a full season before I will move over to the Sprint Cup driver previews.
