NASCARs 5 most disappointing drivers of the year


Here’s phone 5 most disappointing drivers of 2012:

1. Carl Edwards

Rarely includes a championship contender fallen to date. Edwards came within an item of winning this year’s Sprint Cup championship, losing a tiebreaker to Tony Stewart after leading the standings most from the season.

Annually later, nothing went suitable for Edwards. Not just did he go winless but he obtained just three top-five finishes &mdash he’d 19 this year &mdash and skipped the Chase for that Sprint Cup. Following a midseason crew chief change, Edwards’ struggles ongoing and that he ended up 15th within the final standings.

2. Kyle Busch

It’s one factor for Busch to refer to it as the worst season of his career &mdash he’s never happy unless of course he’s winning &mdash however the amounts back him up.

This Year, Busch won only one race. All year long. Across the 3 series.

His lone victory arrived the May Cup race at Richmond. He was -22 within the Countrywide Series and -3 within the Truck Series. He even battled together owner, his Kyle Busch Motorsports team winning only one Countrywide race and just once in trucks.

3. Kevin Harvick

Harvick won a race and ended up eighth within the final standings, but which was far from what he was searching for.

The Richard Childress Racing driver finished third within the standings this year-11 and am disappointed he required a brand new crew chief.

Only his victory within the next-to-last race from the season restored a very disappointing season, as well as that may came past too far. Exactly the same weekend, news leaked that Harvick already includes a offer spot to leave RCR for Stewart-Haas Racing after 2013.

4. Shaun Gordon

It has been a very long time since Gordon has already established this kind of up-and-lower season, and the like an eventful year.

He won two races making the Chase, but he might have accomplished a lot more &mdash otherwise for such things as misfortune, silly mistakes along with a wreck that captivated a crew brawl and price him 25 points.

But all that was overshadowed through the incident at Phoenix, where Gordon retaliated against Clint Bowyer, beginning a brawl in the spare room between their two teams. The incident cost him $100,000 and 25 points and left him a disappointing tenth within the final standings.

5. Tony Stewart

Just how can won by you three races and also have a disappointing season?

Win five &mdash all within the Chase &mdash and set together among the most amazing rallies in the recent past to win the Cup championship.

That is what Stewart did this year, so anything lacking that would be a little disappointing.

Annually after his amazing championship run, Stewart had just four top-10s within the Chase and handle 17th or worse in five from the 10 races.

His ninth-place finish within the standings was the 2nd-worst of his career.
