NASCAR: The Top 6 Drivers That Every Other Driver Is Scared of
Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE
He may wear a target on his car and firesuit, but more often than not, Juan Pablo Montoya is the targeter, rather than the targeted.

Cue the theme from Jaws.

Dun-dun, dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun.

Can you feel the angst? The worry? How about downright fear?

While Sprint Cup drivers rarely admit it in public—unless they're ticked off after being wrecked (intentionally or not) by another competitor and with TV cameras and reporters around to record their every word—there are certain drivers that leave their competitors shaking in their fire suits at times.

There are the hot-headed types that will intentionally wreck a fellow driver for a perceived slight. They're the type that are the most dangerous—and invariably wind up having an invisible scarlet letter painted on their race cars and fire suits.

On the flip side—and no, I'm not talking about overturned cars—there are drivers who have such great talent that they're a threat to win every time they climb behind the wheel. And when they're on a roll and growing bigger and bigger in the rearview mirrors of other drivers, they leave those other drivers with little choice but to simply and almost meekly pull over to get out of the way.

Here's Bleacher Report's take on the six drivers every other driver is afraid of. Do you agree or not? Are there other drivers we don't list here that you feel should be included, too?

Either way, leave us a comment with your take.
