2013 Nationwide Series Driver Preview Part Two..

Note: Sponsorship, drivers, and race deal can change at any time.

11--Elliott Sadler--Joe Gibbs Racing

Elliott Sadler had four wins last season with 24 top tens to finish second place in the standings. I say he gets 4-6 wins in 2013 with at least 25 top tens to finish first to third place in the standings. OneMain Financial is going to sponsor this car.

12--Sam Hornish Jr--Penske Racing

Had 22 top tens with no wins to finish fourth in the standings. Wurth and Alliance Truck Parts will help sponsor this car again. I see Sam picking getting a win in 2013 with 20-22 top tens to finish 4-6th place in the points.

14--Eric McClure--TriStar Motorsports

Had and almost full season with the team with Hefty with 4 top twenty finishes in 28 races. This car is expected to go a full season with Hefty Sponorship. I see this car getting 4-6 top top 20 finishes to finish 14-16th place in the standings.

18--Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano, Darrell Wallace Jr, and more--Joe Gibbs Racing

This car is expected to go a full season, but with multiple drivers again. The car won the owners points title in 2012. With just Joey Logano behind the well in 2012 the car had 7 wins. Joey will get another 5 wins in this car in a limited schedule of races for it. Kyle Will get a win as well. This car will get the Owners trophy again.

19--Hal Martin--TriStar Motorsports

Is expected to go a full season, but no sponsorship has been named. He was in only three races last season with a best finish of 25th. I see him getting 4-6 top twenty finishes to finish 15-17th place in the points.

More driver previews up in a few days.
