NASCAR: 7 Sprint Cup Drivers We'd Like to See Switch Teams

Could Kurt Busch, Ryan Newman and Carl Edwards be among drivers who might be better off with new teams?

When race car drivers change teams, they hope that greater success comes along for the ride.

Sometimes a change of scenery works out well, as in the case of Kyle Busch, who was forced out at Hendrick Motorsports at the end of 2007 to make room for Dale Earnhardt Jr., only to bounce back better than ever at Joe Gibbs Racing.

More recently, Clint Bowyer left Richard Childress Racing when enough sponsorship funding couldn't be found, jumped to Michael Waltrip Racing and then enjoyed the best season of his Sprint Cup career, finishing second in the 2012 final standings.

There's also Kasey Kahne, who went from Richard Petty Motorsports to a brief stint at the now-defunct Red Bull Racing and then wound up with a dream ride a Hendrick Motorsports in 2012, finishing a career-best fourth place.

Even though the 2013 season doesn't officially begin until the Daytona 500 on Feb. 24, there are seven drivers in particular that—if they endure yet another bad year—might want to start thinking about new addresses for 2014, either by choice or not.
