Are: Chase Elliott
While the jury is still out on whether Elliott can actually put pressure aside and go out and win a race or not, there is no doubt that the fans are already in love with him. Of course a lot of that probably has to do with who his father is and what second generation drivers mean to the sport of NASCAR as a whole, he has definitely proved he’s belonged with two playoff appearances and almost making the final four in 2018.
In the end, Elliott might still have some growing pains to go through before his name ever appears next to the words Monster Energy Cup Series Champion, but he is definitely one of the best chooses a fan can make to eventually get there. Not only that, his personality and his endorsements from Jeff Gordon, Dale Jr and Rick Hendrick make him a virtually guaranteed future champion.
