There should be no surprise that our 2017 Monster Energy Cup winner was from the years #1 Team, Furniture Row Racing. Eight wins and and a Cup title tells us they ARE the best. We find Joe Gibbs Racing in the #2 place. They didn’t ultimately get the Cup but they did get seven wins for JGR(the most of any team) and three drivers in the Playoffs. Team Penske stays put at #3. Brad Keselowski made it all the way to Miami. Wood Brothers Racing also stay in place, #4 is not bad for this one car team. Stewart Haas Racing move up a spot and end the year at #5. This was mostly driven by the strength of #4 Kevin Harvick and #41 Kurt Busch who both made the Playoffs. Kevin will return next year and hopefully Kurt Busch will do so too. At #6 we find Hendrick Motorsports, the home of three time winner in 2017,  #48 Jimmie Johnson. HMS also got a win fromm #5 Kasey Kahne who won’t be back next year. HMS will also lose Dale Earbhardt Jr. but they keep Chase Elliott who had a great year finishing 5th in the points after making the Playoffs. They will be joined by Xfinity series champ William Byron and Alex Bowman. Chip Ganassi Racing, Roush Fenway Racing, Richard Childress Racing, and Richard Petty Motorsports all remain in place from last week.

 

Look for our Top Ten Pre Season Teams Monday Jan, 8th 2018.
