The 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup is on the horizon and these exciting races are sure to put the NASCAR teams as well as their leading drivers through their paces. These teams attract some of the best motorsport racers in the world and competition is always fierce. Let’s take a look at some of the best NASCAR teams.
This team has long lead the way in the vibrant world of NASCAR. One of the things that sets Hendrick Motorsports apart from other teams is the knowledgeable teams and excellent drivers. Racer Jimmie Johnson is one of the stars of the Hendrick Motorsports team and he won the championship in 2007 and 2013. This season crew chief Steve Letarte will be replaced by Greg Ives and it is a good bet that the team will go on to win their 12th Sprint Cup championship.
Although they did not win in 2014, both Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski performed exceptionally well and consistently qualified well enough to secure the coveted front starting positions. Their cars bring a lot of speed and power to the races and the enhancements that the garage crew have installed mean that Team Penske are set to give Hendrick Motorsport a run for their money this year.
Joe Gibbs Racing
This season, Joe Gibbs Racing offers one of the strongest lineups of racers in the history of NASCAR. This season the team has added Carl Edwards to their crew, who is set to make a significant contribution. One of the main things that prevented Joe Gibbs Racing from leading the way last season was their cars, which were supplied by Toyota Racing Development. These cars were simply not fast enough to make the grade and substantial improvements have been made this season to help drivers such as Denny Hamlin reach the speeds they need to be true contenders. While Joe Gibbs Racing has a lot to prove this year, they have been working hard and will be one of the main teams to watch.
Although Stewart-Haas Racing won the championship last season, overall they did not perform as well as some of the other teams and it can be said that star driver Kevin Harvick did virtually all of the work. The teams drivers for 2015 include Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick, Kurt Busch and Danica Patrick, all of whom have many years of racing under their belts. Last year Stewart-Haas Racing achieved six wins and 23 placings in the top five and NASCAR fans can be sure that they will be going all out this season to really show what they can do.
