Will 2016 be the season Dale Earnhardt Jr. finally wins his first Sprint Cup championship?
We've had three first-time champions in the Sprint Cup Series in the last four seasons: Brad Keselowski (2012), Kevin Harvick (2014) and Kyle Busch (2015), the latter two under the new Chase format that was implemented in 2014.
There are a number of drivers who still have not won their first Sprint Cup championships.
Among those: Denny Hamlin, Greg Biffle, Carl Edwards, Martin Truex Jr., defending Daytona 500 winner Joey Logano, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Ryan Newman, Jamie McMurray, Paul Menard, Clint Bowyer, Aric Almirola, Kasey Kahne, Danica Patrick, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Kyle Larson, Austin Dillon, A.J. Allmendinger, Casey Mears and more.
And let's not forget the newcomers who may potentially make some significant noise of their own in 2016: rookies (and Daytona 500 pole-sitter) Chase Elliott, Chris Buescher, Brian Scott and Ryan Blaney.
Who do you think will be the next first-time Sprint Cup champion?
