Many changes have been implemented for the 2013 NASCAR season that may bring success not only to the sport, but drivers and teams as well. Each season also brings stunning and unexpected happenings.
Who would have thought during Speedweeks last year that Brad Keselowski would bring home the NASCAR Sprint Cup trophy for Penske Racing wheeling a Dodge?
Who would have thought the Daytona 500 would be broadcast, during primetime television on a Monday night, with drama like the collision of Juan Pablo Montoya with a jet dryer?
Who would have thought Carl Edwards would miss the Chase, and Michael Waltrip Racing driver Clint Bowyer would be the runner-up for the Cup title in 2012?
The one sure thing about NASCAR racing in the top-three national series is that the unexpected is lurking around every turn and often on the straightaways.
This slideshow will examine a selection of scenarios that could potentially be stories we reflect upon this time next year.
Because some will be off the wall and a little bold, there will be those who find them ridiculous while others will pause to wonder about what the impact truly could be. See what you think.
