Not everyone is cut out to be a Monster Energy Cup Series driver and while some are able to transition seamlessly into the sport’s top level, others continue to fail no matter how many chances that are given. Unfortunately for those that can’t seem to find their footing or are slowly losing their footing in a sport they once dominated in, they may soon be forced to compete for their rides.
With that being said and another NASCAR season only months away, here are some drivers that should lose their rides in favor of someone else. Whether that person is a trustworthy veteran that is still showing strong returns or a young promising rookie that can compete with the big three remains to be seen, but these are the drivers that are seriously in trouble.
Please keep in mind that these choices won’t be exclusively dependent on contracts or sponsorship dollars, but will be centered around performance at the track and availability of other options. In the end, please let us know your thoughts in the comments below and be sure to also let us know who you think should lose their ride.
