#1 First time champion.
Let’s be honest here.
The only way this season can end on a positive note is if NASCAR has a first time champion and it feels like that is exactly what is going to happen. Whether the first timer ends up being Chase Elliott, Joey Logano, Aric Almirola or Ryan Blaney remains to be seen, but there are just so many consistent finishers besides the big three that it feels like it has to happen.
Of course maybe I’m wrong and one of the big three or another driver that has won a championship will step up and take it all for themselves, but the best way for the sport to move forward after this hellacious year is a first time winner. With that being said, Ryan Blaney, who almost made the final four last year, seems like the best choice of the bunch!
