#2 Kyle Larson.
Unlike most drivers on this list, Kyle Larson has had a pretty good season so far.
In fact, Larson has five top-fives and nine top-ten’s so far this season and currently sits tenth in the standings right now. With that being said, Larson has had a lot of bad luck in trying to win a race and qualify for the playoffs this season, which means that Larson might have to qualify on points alone.
Not only has Larson finished runner up this season on three different occasions, he also two DNF this season and they are at tracks that will be revisited in the playoffs later this year. Of course one of those tracks was the wild card race of Talladega super speedway, but he also fell out of the race at Texas , which could hurt his chances of being able to have success there later this year.
In the end, Larson has been good, but not lucky. Hopefully that will change later on down the line and in time for The playoffs, but that hasn’t exactly happened yet.
