With the 2012 Sprint Cup Series over and NASCAR already into its offseason, drivers are getting set to start the 2013 year with a bang.
Unfortunately, some drivers seem more likely to flop than to succeed in the 2103 season.
Some drivers have a lot to deal with on and off the track heading into the New Year, and it might impact how well they perform in 2013. Other drivers are making their first full-time Sprint Cup Series debut and might not have enough experience to succeed in the series just yet.
Then there are those who will be with a brand new team and may still need time to fully adjust to the new setting.
The 2013 season will be filled with ups and downs for some drivers.
These five are the most likely to flop next season.
