As the regular season of NASCAR comes to a close, certain drivers seem to be getting attention for their success more than others.
Jimmie Johnson, for example, has had major success this year and has been a spotlight for many NASCAR discussions. But just because other drivers haven’t won four races doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to be recognized for their success this season.
Not everyone is going to be on a major team, but certain drivers made major strides this year and had a better season than they've had over the past couple of years.
Even certain drivers in the Chase aren’t getting the attention they deserve, or haven’t gotten any attention until recently.
This season has been a lot about Jimmie Johnson, his early success, and now his late-season bad luck. Other drivers, like Danica Patrick, have received a fair amount of attention for doing very little.
The defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski has even received a good amount of attention, even though he’s having a worse season than he did last year.
These 10 drivers, though, have had a successful season so far, especially when compared to what they've done in past seasons. They might not be dominant or on a major team, but they still deserve attention.
