Five NASCAR Drivers Who Go Under The Radar Heading Into 2013

Douglas Jones-USA TODAY Sports

Over the years several NASCAR drivers go out to the track every week to race, some drivers get noticed meanwhile others go under the radar.

Every week on the race track every driver goes out to prove that they deserve to go out racing for everywhere on the schedule whether it is the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Nationwide Series or the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Throughout the seasons several drivers have performed well in their series but haven’t received much attention for their accomplishments.

Within all three of NASCAR’s series several drivers have gone to perform well in their series but five have gone underrated. Five drivers throughout NASCAR that have gone underrated are Martin Truex Jr., Brian Scott, Aric Almirola, Michael Annett, and Parker Kligerman.

Most of the five drivers have gone on to become winners in NASCAR. Some recently captured their first ever career win in the 2012 season. Two of these drivers became part of a historic Trucks season that featured 16 different winners. Meanwhile one became one of the drivers to help qualify their team to their first ever Cup Series chase appearance.

Most of five drivers went on to finish within the top 10 in the point standings in their respective series. Two of them would finish within the top 20 after a season of firsts.

These drivers may have gone under the raider for a couple of seasons but after the 2012 NASCAR season, they have proven to be some of the best competitors NASCAR has seen on the track and will compete for wins in 2013.
