Power Ranking the 10 Best Racing Teams in NASCAR Ahead of the 2016 Season

NASCAR teams are not created equal. Unlike the NFL, which tries its billion-dollar heart out to make everyone 8-8, NASCAR has no such parity.

By design, no more than eight teams typically represent the playoff scheme. Last year, 11 drivers from four teams made up the 16-driver Chase field (Joe Gibbs Racing, four; Hendrick Motorsports, three; Team Penske, two; Richard Childress Racing, two).

When four teams comprise 69 percent of the entire field, it makes you question the construct of the league.

Be that as it may, our job, for the purposes of this click-monster slider, is to power rank the teams using such criteria as number of drivers, performance of those drivers and how they will likely perform in 2016.

Read on for a flex-worthy power ranking of this year’s top teams.
