Nascar 2012 Season Review (NNS REVIEW) 8-5

Post by Lucstar88 on Mon Dec 31, 2012 5:52 pm

So.. I wanted to try this so here we go
I will give ratings on the top 25 NSCS drivers, top 20 NNS drivers & top 15 drivers

Let's get started with the NCTS
15 : Ryan Sieg #39, RSS Racing, Best Finish 6th (Phoenix)
Never really saw him on the track... but he got decent finishes with a unsponsored truck
2013 : He'll probably get more decent finishes

14 : Todd 'The Onion' Bodine #11, Red Horse Racing Best Finish 1st (Dover) Well he had a horrible year & won a rain-shorten race & had a memorable accident with Piquet at Pocono
2013 : He really needs a good year if he wants a ride in 2014 (If he returns)

13 : Ron Hornaday Jr, #9, JDM, Best Finish 2nd (Iowa)
4 Time Champ had trouble in 2012 but he went from KHI to a beginning truck team.
2013 : Returns to JDM who is now NTS, but Hornaday has now experienced with this team so he'll finish Top 10 in races

12 : Cale Gale, #33, ESR, Best Finish 1st (Homestead)
Had that AMAZING Finish with Ky.Busch at Homestead but rest went so-par & lost his ride
2013 :No plans

11 : Jason White, #23, GBR, Best Finish 2nd (Michigan)
I like this guy, as a owner-driver he got some good runs at Michigan, Daytona & Charlotte
2013 : No plans as of now but he'll probably return with GunBroker &redo a similar 2012 season & finish outside the Top 10 in points

10 : Miguel Paludo, #32 Turner Motorsports Best Finish 5th (Homestead) With his teamates finishing 1st & 7th in the points, Paludo had a sub-par season & also had a horrible crash at Daytona
2013 : Returns with Turner & he'll have a better Season than 2012 & I think he'll win a race or have more top 5's & his job is safe (PS : 8th)

9 : Johnny Sauter, #13, Thorsport, Best Finish (Texas 1 & 2)
Had a worse season than 2011 where he finished 2nd to Austin Dillon but sweept Texas 2013 : Returns & will do better than 2012, Wins around 2-3 Races (PS : 6th)

8th : Justin Lofton, #6, ESR, Best Finish 1st (Charlotte)
I am a fan of this guy & that win at Charlotte has great. Led the points a bit but fell of
2013 : Returns for some races

Not sure about the trucks, but once you get to Nationwides then I'll give an opinion. I might do my own version of these if you don't mind.

7 : Nelson Piquet Jr, #30, Turner MTS, Best Finish 1st (Michigan, Las Vegas) Great season for the guy from Brazil. His 2 wins, countless top 5 & 10's make him a great racer. Also, his win at RA in NNS was great.
2013 : Plans to run full-time in Nationwide. He'll be a contender at Road Courses

6 : Matt Crafton, #88, Thorsport, Best Finish 2nd (Taxas 1 & Las Vegas) I underestimate him, He had 8 top 5's which included 5 straight, unfortunately he didn't win
2013 : I think he'll do the same as in 2012 but will finish in 5th in points

5 : Parker Kligerman , #29/7, BKR,RHR, Best Finish 1st (Talladega)
Even though he changed team in at Michigan? He did very good, should of won 1-2 more races and was a championship contender till the end 2013 : Moves to NNS with Ky.Busch in the #77. Honestly, i think he'll be good in Nationwide (If them Cup guys would leave he would win races)

4 : Ty Dillon #3, RCR, Best Finish 1st (Atlanta)
Here comes Ty.. sort of he won Atlanta against Ky.Busch but should of won more races... He is the better Dillon. He could of used that ARCA performance here
2013 : Stays with Pop-Pop (Da.) & I think like Austin wins more races in year 2 (PS : 2nd-1st)

3 : Joey Coulter #22, RCR, Best Finish 1st (Pocono)
Honestly i didn't see him winning a race & finishing 3rd.. I was wrong Won Pocono with a amazing restart & had several good runs
2013 : Moves to Ky.Busch's Team in Trucks #18 (Better than Leffler) with experienced crew chief Harold Holly (PS : 3rd)

#2, Timothy Peters, #17, RHR, Best Finish 1st (Iowa, Bristol)
Led all laps at Bristol WOW!, and came very close to winning the championship but fell. Amazing Year.
2013 : RHR has not announced anything (according to Jayski) but Very Likely return & a serious championship contender

1, James Buescher, #31, Turner, Best Finish 1st (Kansas, Kentucky1,2 & Chicago) Well 4 Wins, 10 Top 5's, 10 Top 10's made Buescher the Truck Champion. Even though he kinda fell of at the end
2013 : Unknown but probably will go with Turner in Nationwide. Where he hopes he can wins races like Daytona, but with dominant races

Well there's my NCWTS Reviews
Agree?, Disagree? What do you think of the truck drivers this year?

In Nationwide, the guy that did more with less was without doubt Mike Bliss. Eighth in points for TriStar!

Let's play agree or disagree Razz

Ryan Sieg:
2012: Agreed, Although he did make a few appearances up front
2013: Agreed, Since Sieg seems to sneak into these finishes often

Todd Bodine
2012: Agreed, Although most of it was self-inflicted
2013: Agreed that he won't have a ride in 2013

Ron Hornaday:
2012: Agreed, I saw him maybe three times on tv all year.
2013: Disagree, I think Hornaday is at that time if his career where he'll fall off and people will question if he needs to retire

Cale Gale:
2012: Agreed, I couldn't even comprehend that win fully...which leads me to believe that Kyle wasn't mad cause of the contact...just that he lost to CALE EFFIN GALE
2013: Disagree, Think he'll show up somewhere next season

Jason White
2012: Questionable, He's not a bad driver but he was quite anonymous this season
2013: Agreed, White's got the sponsorship to reappear again and he'll be once again that guy that does good every once in a while but remains anonymous

Miguel Paludo:
2012: Agreed, Quite surprised he didn't run as well as his Turner teammates
2013: Agreed as him and Jeb Burton now become the focus of the team

Johnny Sauter:

2012: Agreed, Quite the quiet season for Sergeant Sauter
2013: Agreed, Sauter can only go up from 2012

Justin Lofton:
2012: Agreed, He looked like a contender but his 2nd half was awful
2013: Agreed, Since it's obvious already

Nelson Piquet:

2012: Agreed. In my opinion Piquet was the best of class all year...just had some incidents that threw off good finishes
2013: Agree....Think he'll do good everywhere including the road courses

Matt Crafton:
2012: Agreed, The master of second proves why he finishes in the top 5 all the time
2013: Agreed, MATT CRAFTON IS THE MASTER OF SECOND PLACE.

Parker Kliggerman
2012: Agreed? It was a weird year for Kliggerman, He was lacking in the first half but much better in the second half
2013: Agreed? He might do good but something tells me he might slack a bit

Ty Dillon
2012: Agreed. Ty could've won more but it's his first year
2013: Agreed. Ty will be much faster in his second year

Joey Coulter:

2012: Agreed? I was suprised as well that he won but fell off after that then snuck his way into third in points.
2013: Agreed. Coulter might improve with the focus on him

Timothy Peters:
2012: Agreed. Only challenger to Buscher and was fast all year.
2013: Agreed. But i think 2013 is Peters year.

James Buescher:
2012: Agreed. Turner was the class of the field all season...although i disagree with him falling off at the end as he just had a bit of bad luck
2013: Agree. Think Buescher will do good in Nationwide.

Well time to do the nns

20 : Johanna Long, #70, ML Motorsports, Best Finish, (12th), Charlotte2 & Daytona2, (Calm down BWardBoy...) Laughing Well did alot with a underfunded team & honestly is better than danica & will probably win a race before her
2013 : Returns for 22-23 races (Which i think is stupid)

19 : Timmy Hill, #41, Rick Ware Racing, Best Finish, (7th) Daytona1
Well, he obviosly got lucky with that 7th.. i really didn't care for him this year (Not A Fan)
2013 : No plans to date (That i heard of)

18 : Brad Sweet, #38, Turner Motorsports, Best Finish, (6th) California,
Well i honestly like this kid, he ran 18? races and good with Kasey Kahne
2013 : Goes with sponsor Great Clips & Kahne at JR Motorsports, (IMO, I think he'll do better since he isn't the worst car at turner (probably gonna ge6t some hate for that one)) He & Kahne will run 27 races with a couple races spare (Hopefully for Cole Whitt or another up and comer)

17 : Erik Darnell, #40, The Motorsports Group (derp), Best Finish (14th) Talladega, The Former Roush Driver drove for a sucky team in 2012... that's about it..
2013 : Plans unknown but probably return to TMG in the 40

SO.. Your thoughts?

16 : Eric McClure, #14, TriStar Motorsports, Best Finish (15th) Kansas
Well he'll be most remembred for that HORRIFIC wreck at Talladega.
2013 : Returns with TriStar with sponsor Hefty HOPEFULLY he won`t have another Talladega wreck...

15 : Tayler Malsam, #19, TriStar Motorsports, Best Finish (6th), Daytona1
Well he was sacked rom his ride (which was kinda stupid in my opinion
2013 : Free Agent \ Team 2013 : Hal Martin takes his ride

14 : Jeremy Clements, #51, Jeremy Clements Racing, Best Finish (10th), Indy, Dover
Well finishing 14th in the points and getting 2 top 10's with his lack of equipement, needs to get a better team to drive for
2013 : Unknown

13 : Jason Bowles, #81, MacDonald Motorsports, Best Finish (14th) Road America & Daytona2
I never really gave attention to him but he was getting decent finishes
2013 : Unknown

12 : Mike Wallace, JD Motorsports, #01, Best Finish (7th) Waktings Glen
Really good and experienced driver, the 2nd daytona race was a bummer for him cause he had a great car (RCR engine) sadly to see it distroyed in the big one
2013 : Returns with JD Motorsports, but trying to secure sponsorship

11 : Joe Nemechek, #87, NEMCO Motorsports, Best Finish (8th) Richmond2
Front Row Joe was a suprise this year.. other than that idk..
2013 : Unknown as of yet

10 : Danica Patrick : #7, JR Motorsports, Best Finish (8th) Texas
Ima gonna get hate for this..... Well, she's was better at superspeedways and road courses, She really could of won at Montreal if it weren't for that asshole fan (WHO DECIDES TO THROW A DAMM SHOE ON THE TRACK)...
2013 : Moves to cup and will do decent with SHR (she almost had a top 20 at bristol if she didn't get wrecked)

9 : Brian Scott, #11, Joe Gibbs Racing, Best Finish (3rd) Dover
He won in trucks (Big Deal steal Larson's win...) big whoop, he had a bad season not like his teamates...
2013 : Goes to RCR, which he'll probably do better

8 : Mike Bliss, #19,44,10, Tristar Motorsports, Best Finish, (8th) Daytona2
Well this man is a BADASS, he finished 8th in the point with TRISTAR (Which is a feat on its own) He was better than Danica and Brian Scott who had SUPERIOR EQUIPEMENT
2013 : No Plans According to Jayski...

7 : Cole Whitt, #88, Jr Motorsports, Best Finish (4th), Daytona1, Talladega & Michigan
I am a fan of Cole (Not because he is a JRM Driver), and as a rookie i thought he would do sub-par and finish 15-10 in points, i was clearly mistakin, he drove well every week
2013 : Nobody knows... probably won't return with Jr.. if so he'll drive the 88 for a part-time basis, maybe filling the 5 when Kahne/Sweet

6 : Justin Allgier, #31, Turner Scott Motorsports, Best Finish (1st) Montreal,
He was decent.. led the most laps at iowa but finished 2nd, he won that CRAZY race in Montreal after shoving Villeneuve out of the way... If not for bad brakes, he would of finished in the top 5 in points
2013 : Returns with sponsor, team but gets Scott Zipadelli as crew chief

5 : Micheal Annett, #43, Richard Petty Motorsports, Best Finish, (3rd) Dover2, Daytona2
Anyone else expected the former Rusty Wallace driver to freaking do well as he did. Several top 5's and top 10's made Annett a championship contender
2013 : Returns with RPM and will probably win some races
