Its almost that time of year again!
The time of year when 16 of The best Monster Energy Cup Series drivers compete for a chance to be called champion at the end of the year. Its a prestigious honor in the sport and something every driver dreams of one day achieving. Of course before that can happen, they first have to make the playoffs, which is sometimes difficult to do.
NASCAR introduced this new points system in 2014, where winning a race would guarantee you a spot in that years playoffs. The rest of the positions that weren’t taken up by winners that season would be filled by points, which made every race important. Unfortunately for some some drivers, a win at the cup level isn’t easy to come by and points aren’t easily earned either.
With that being said and the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series playoffs almost upon us, here are five drivers in danger of not making the cut in September. As always feel free to leave your comments below and tell us who you think will be miss the playoffs this year!
