This is around the time I usually do this.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series

Most wins in a season: Carl Edwards
Upset of the year: Dave Blaney wins at Talladega (could also happen to Nemechek, Gilliland, Ragan, etc.), Ambrose makes the chase
Disappointments: Jeff Burton, Denny Hamlin
Best race of 2012: Watkins Glen
Worst race of 2012: Las Vegas
Retirees at season end: None
Driver of the year: Carl Edwards
Reject of the year: Joey Logano
Most likely to lose ride in the middle of the season: Joey Logano or David Ragan
Champion: Jimmie Johnson
Runner-up: Carl Edwards

NASCAR Nationwide Series:

First-time winners: Michael Annett, Jacques Villeneuve
Most wins in a season: Some Buschwacker
Upset of the year: Mike Bliss wins a race (or two) and finished in 6th or above. Jacques Villeneuve winning on a road course, someone has a career ending injury at Talladega or Daytona
Disappointments: Brian Scott not winning a race
Best race of 2012: Mid-Ohio
Worst race of 2012: California
Retirees at season end: Probably none but maybe Jeff Green
Driver of the year: Trevor Bayne
Reject of the year: Blatentshit (John Blakenship)
Most likely to lose ride in the middle of the season: Hal Martin, Brian Scott, or Blatentshit
Champion: Trevor Bayne
Runner-up: Brian Vickers

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series:
I don't really follow this so some will be blank.
First-time winners: None
Most wins in a season: Timothy Peters
Upset of the year: Whoever wins at Eldora.
Disappointments: Ron Hornaday
Best race of 2012: no idea
Worst race of 2012: no idea
Retirees at season end: Ron Hornaday
Driver of the year: Timothy Peters
Reject of the year: no idea
Most likely to lose ride in the middle of the season: Max Gresham, Ron Hornaday, maybe Johnny Sauter (I hope not)
Champion: Timothy Peters
Runner-up: no idea...maybe Matt Crafton has a breakout season?

General Predictions.
- TriStar sacks their pay drivers (Hal Martin and Blatent Sh!t) when their cash runs out.
- Mike Bliss gets TriStar's first win in their two decades of existence
- Joey Logano is terrible at Penske
- Danica Patrick has a mediocre rookie season
- Jacques Villeneuve or Max Papis wins at Mid Ohio.
- Someone should put Tommy Byrne in a car for Mid Ohio, because he is considered to know Mid Ohio better than anyone in the world (he works for the track and runs on it daily. Sadly I highly doubt he will get into a car)
- Ron Hornaday is fired and retires from racing without a ride a la Sterling Marlin at the end of the year.
- Mayfield reappears in another form of racing (probably USAC)
- Brian Scott is a disaster at RCR
- Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards battle for the championship.
- We never hear from John King again
- Someone will be seriously injured in Talladega. It won't be fatal but it will be the RL equivalent of Woody Watts, as in they can't drive again. Not to be dark and I hope I'm wrong. Most likely in the Nationwide cars due to high speeds and many incompetent drivers.
- At the nationwide Daytona or Talladega race, Mike Bliss and Joe Nemechek take off from the rest of the field in a tandem draft on the last lap and one of them wins.
- David Ragan loses his ride at the end of the season.

Re: 2013 NASCAR Predictions

Post by TheRealNathNath on Sat Dec 08, 2012 11:04 pm

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series

First-time winners: Stenhouse (Almirola will come SO close)
Most wins in a season: Matt Kenseth and Clint Bowyer (4)
Upset of the year:
-Stenhouse finishes 14th in points, and misses chase by 2 points.
-Blaney pushes Logano to the win at one Plate race, if so most likely the 500
-Jeff Gordon has 5 wins (see below)
-Danica, despite failure, collects 2 top 10's and is praised (Glen, some Plate race)
-Stenhouse finishes in the top 5 in the last 3 races, but with only one win, 14th won't be enough.
-the 500's top 5 due to a late wreck: Logano, Kurt Busch, Blaney, Kyle Busch, Vickers.
Disappointments:
-Gordon's luck hits him in the mid-season, but 2 early wins seal his chase, with and 18th place points finish. Then uncharacteristic mistakes cost him his 5th title.
-Kahne is consistent, but finishes 2nd 4 times, and bad luck down the strech and misses the chase
-Greg Biffle (see above)
-Montoya doesn't suck (maybe makes chase)
-Kyle Busch (see above)
-Lolgano (see above, but misses chase)
-BK racing gets top 5's in 2 plate races (maybe
-McMurray does suck
-Menard mediocres to somehow make the chase in 12th with a win at some snooze fest.
-Ambrose finishes 11th with 5 podiums, but no wins and no chase.
Best race of 2012: Martinsville, Talladega
Worst race of 2012: Every 1.5-mile race except chase Kansas
Retirees at season end: Blaney if he has bad luck, Bobby Labonte if he wins, or somehow does worse.
Driver of the year: Truex with 20 Top 10s before the chase, but no wins.
Reject of the year: Newman Dan-an-an-an-an-an-an-an-anica
Most likely to lose ride in the middle of the season: Newman (screws up bad on and off the track)
Champion: Truex after 26, Bowyer in the next 10
Runner-up: Bowyer after 26, Gordon after 10 (screws himself early in the chase trying to retaliate, wins 3 times, but wrecks at Pheonix)

-EGR downsizes to one, and the position battle will be hard, but McMurray gets a huge contract at a team like Petty or Penske and JPM gets car
-RCR mediocres its way to two chasers; no wins.
-Petty gets bigger sponsor contracts for 2014, maybe some EGR's lost ones
-Regan Smith gets a ride late season, maybe switching on-off with Burton or in the 55 or some SHR car.
-Labonte trolls the Martinsville chase race by winning

NASCAR Nationwide Series:

First-time winners: Regan Smith, Ryan Blaney, Ryan Truex, Wallace Jr.
Most wins in a season: Smith, cuppie, cuppie, cuppie, cuppie
Upset of the year: Johanna Long

Best race of 2012: X-way tie with (see above)
Worst race of 2012: 2/3 the races.
Retirees at season end: HOPEFULLY some owner of some crap-team.
Driver of the year: Smith
Reject of the year: Allgaier
Most likely to lose ride in the middle of the season: Malsam gets a better ride.
Champion: Bayne if he's elligible
Runner-up: Sadler (Regan Smith will miss a few races, the top 3 will be TIGHT, making Homestead watchable.)

ANY
Disappointments: At least one driver is Seriously hurt in a Plate crash
Best race of 2012: Nationwide Mid-Ohio
Worst race of 2012: Nationwide Kansas
Driver of the year: Brad Sweet starts 25 of 32 races, finishes 5th in Nationwide points.
Reject of the year: Ryan Newman
Most likely to lose ride in the middle of the season: Newman
Champion of our hearts: Johanna Long
Runner-up (see above): Darrell Wallace Jr. doing well

No, Clint Bowyer can't POSSIBLY win a title in cup even though he finished 2nd in points with three wins last year, beating out Jimmie Johnson despite being "mathematically ineligible". Can't happen. Nope.

Clint Bowyer won 3 races and finished 2nd in point this year...I don't know who could be a better choice when Roush is probably gonna screw Penske and Jimmie's chase streak is effectively done. I don't know what you've been watching but Bowyer is the #1 driver of that team.

If the Roush deal is true and their equipment is good as it's been with Stenhouse then Pastrana has a good shot at winning, Johanna might not win but weirder things have happened so it never hurts to be hopeful for a driver you like

*Elliott. Accidental misspelling...Everyone makes mistakes...get over it.

I know Tanner and Alta did this already, but Bowyer has proven to do pretty damn good in MWR equipment.

also, Johanna has shown that she can do well in iffy equipment, and Pastrami has been dong very well in his Nationwide tenure so far, so what you may call a Troll is actually possible.

Bowyer can win the title, but based on MWR's consistency and ability to run with the top drivers week in and week out, it's highly unlikely. Shouldn't have included it with the NNS first-time winners...

23 top 10's in the 2012 season, 10 top 5's, and 3 wins.

unlikely my ass.

Did you watch Cup this year? The man was up front almost every race and looked pretty damn impressive...If MWR keeps what they had this year they will be a force to be reckonned wirh

I find it funny you criticize my wishful thinking/trend noticing. So in turn let's break down your post.

Disappointments: Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano, Jeff Burton
Champion: 29 Kevin Harvick

So one RCR car is going to win the title while the other flounders, I know that it seems like Burton is on his way out but i think RCR will pay attention to all of his cars

Most wins in a season: 48 Jimmie Johnson (5)
Runner-up: 48 Jimmie Johnson
Unless Harvick ties in your scenario, i don't see how you can win the title in today's Nascar with out having the most wins overall/in the chase

First-time winners: Brendan Gaughan, Jake Crum

Do you even watch trucks? Gaughan's won numerous times already in trucks back in the early 2000's.

Jake Crum....Really? Guy had one good run at Bristol until a wreck and that was pretty much the last anyone heard of him this season.


Worst race of 2012: 3/4ths of the schedule

Again did you watch trucks this year at all? Trucks were pretty awesome 95% time of the year and if you aren't hyped about this season with the new addition then you're being absolutely stubborn.

Champion: 3 Austin Dillon
Champion: 3 Ty Dillon

I remember you telling me they're only in on daddy's money and are not talented at all. Change of heart?

I guess I've never really viewed MWR to be a powerhouse team. I mean, coming into the Chase, I knew Truex was out of it. I had some faith in Bowyer for a bit, but I could feel that he just didn't have enough for the 2 and 48, who were just pulling away for a championship battle between themselves. Once Kez got on that streak, I began to think he was going to win it come Homestead and my thinking was right. So I get to add another trophy to all my N'Wide stuff, too. Razz

Maybe. It seemed like Burton was in the middle of nowhere all year while Harvick had some good races. Menard was almost the same as Burton.

True. I guess DNF's could be a factor? But then again, Hendrick engines have always been reliable.

That's probably the reason why they'll win the title. In NNS, Sadler's out of the 2 and they're making the 21 a 3rd full-time car, so I could see Austin being focused on a bit more. But going back to what you said about RCR's Cup program, I might be wrong.

If Gilliland won, yes; if Mears won, no. He won the Coke 600 in 2007. Those are two examples of drivers that could upset and win. I don't actually think we'll see a first-time winner in 2013 though.

Wouldn't really be that much of an upset. If you said 3 wins on 3 different ovals, then that's an upset.

Upset of the year: Junior breaks the 4 year rule by winning again. Sorry guys, 4 year rule still intact
Disappointments: Brad Keselowski (I have the worst feeling Roush is going to screw them), Joey Logano, Kasey Kahne Right on Kez (You can argue my point was right as well) Logano did better then normal surprisingly and Kahne was just there. 1 out of 3 i guess.

Disappointments: Eillott Sadler, Brian Scott Sadler was never a factor but not far down the points where i can say he sucked, Scott was actually better this year

Most wins in a season: Jimmie Johnson (9) Who the hell would have thought Matt Kenesth would have won the most races?!?
Upset of the year: NASCAR will hold the yellow, and a restrictor plate race will run green the whole way This is NASCAR we are talking about, why was I talking out of my ass on this one
Dissapointment of the Year:  Hendrick will have two subpar performances, Dale Jr. will finish outside the Top 20, Jeff Gordon near the same Oops
Best race of 2013: Bristol Night Watkins Glen was better
Worst race of 2013: Cookie Cutter U Pick 'em Don't they usually produce bad races?!? Though FOX derping at Charlotte sure helped
Retirees at season end: Jeff Burton, Bobby Labonte, Jeff Gordon I have a feeling I will nail it with Labonte at the least
Driver of the year: Jimmie Johnson I'd give it to Kurt Busch for doing what he did with a single car team
Reject of the year: Jeff Gordon I'll give it Brad Keselowski. Can it be 2012 again?!?
Most likely to lose ride in the middle of the season: Kurt Busch.  I say he'll lose it before Daytona in July
Champion: Jimmie Johnson Nailed it Cool 
Runner-up: Brad Keselowski Oops
