Making resolutions for each new year is a phenomenon that involves making changes in one's life, hopefully for the better. Of course, it is common for most of those resolutions to be for naught.
It is the goal of every driver within the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series to contend for the series title, but only 12 drivers make their way to the playoffs known as the Chase. For some it may be the impossible dream.
After 26 points races during the season, the 10-week Chase for the title begins with the champion being celebrated at the season finale in Homestead.
For several drivers in the 2012 Chase, unexpected success was found, while those expected to be serious contenders failed to seal the deal.
Each and every one of the 12 drivers experienced highs and lows during the Chase. Perhaps even the series champion Brad Keselowski realized he might have done some things differently.
This slideshow will take a somewhat lighthearted look at resolutions each of the 12 drivers might make for the upcoming 2013 season. The drivers will be listed as they finished in the standings from 12th to first.
