NASCAR: 5 Drivers Who Are Ready to Breakout in 2013

It's been a break out season for Brad Keselowski in 2012. What drivers may have break out years in 2013?

The 2012 season marked the breakout year for Brad Keselowski. Not only has he won a career-high five races, he has been No. 1 in the standings for five of the first six races in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

And if Keselowski can continue to hold off Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin—barring any surprises from guys like Clint Bowyer and Kasey Kahne—in the remaining four races, the Polish Rocket's breakout season will be complete with the biggest prize of all: the Sprint Cup championship.

But given that many teams have already begun preparations for next season, those of us at Bleacher Report thought we'd take a look at who could potentially become the next Keselowski—in other words, which drivers have the best shot of having their own breakout year in 2013.

Do you think anyone else may be on the horizon to break out, as well? Leave us a comment afterward with your thoughts.
