There are some drivers in the Sprint Cup Series who are so consistent that we know exactly what we are going to get from them year in and year out.
Jimmie Johnson is always good for at least four wins and a top-three finish in the championship standings. On the other end of the spectrum, Joe Nemechek and Michael McDowell are known start-and-park drivers who will post more DNFs than top-35 finishes.
Then there are some drivers from whom we never quite know what to expect.
Kyle Busch is one of those competitors.
In his last six seasons, Busch has posted win totals that range from one to eight victories in a year. His top-10 totals have been as low as 13 and as high as 22.
Busch finished a career-best fourth in the standings in 2013, but he has also missed the Chase twice in the past five years.
With Busch's up-and-down tendencies, making predictions for what his season will look like can be nearly impossible. But I am going to give it a shot.
In the slides ahead, I will make a few bold predictions for what the 2014 Sprint Cup season has in store for the younger Busch brother.
