Let us take a look at the Top 10 NASCAR Drivers 2016.
Top 10 NASCAR Drivers 2016
10. Jimmie Johnson:
We start our list of Top 10 NASCAR Drivers 2016 with Jimmie Johnson. He currently is co-partnered with crew chief Chad Knaus.
Jimmie Johnson finished outside the top 10 of the final Sprint Cup standings for the first time in his career last year. Thus, there is no precedent to suggest what he might do in 2015.
The 11th-place finish in last year’s standings under the new Chase format was a bit misleading, but both team principals readily admitted that they weren’t championship caliber in 2014. Even his biggest fans will admit this wasn’t Johnson’s strongest season. His pace seemed a bit erratic and there were a couple of uncharacteristic, unforced errors.

9. Denny Hamlin:
The 9th contender in our list of Top NASCAR Drivers 2016 is Denny Hamlin. Denny Hamlin didn’t compete in every Sprint Cup Series race last year and yet he nearly walked away with the 2014 championship.
Hamlin, who had a sliver of metal get lodged in his eye, was forced to miss the event at Auto Club Speedway. He then missed the chance to become the first Cup driver since Richard Petty in 1970 to capture a title without competing in all the races. With 2 wins and 1 pole, Hamlin currently earns $$6,537,373.
8. Kurt Brush:
Standing at number 8 in our list of Top NASCAR Drivers 2016, we have Kurt Brush. With 2 wins and 3 poles last seasons, Brush is definitely the driver to look for in the upcoming season. He drives for Chevrolet. Busch has also driven for Furniture Row Racing, Phoenix Racing, Penske Racing, and Roush Racing in his Sprint Cup career, which began in 2000. Busch, the winner of twenty-seven Cup career races and the 2004 series championship.
