Open Mic: Markle Motorsports: All Time NASCAR Lineup

Marjory MarkleCorrespondent IAugust 5, 2008

In my humble opinion, just about the perfect team already exists in NASCAR (until Tony Stewart leaves JGR at the end of this season) but there are a couple of more drivers I would add to this lineup.  (Yes, I know the NASCAR rule book states that an owner can only have 4 drivers, but for this exercise, I want five!)

So, therefore, my ultimate NASCAR team lineup would consist of: Kyle Busch, Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Denny Hamlin, and Martin Truex Jr.  I think these five men would work very well on a team together and win a lot of races.  For the most part, I believe they get along off the track, and on the track, they would run over their own mother to win a race, and that's what I want to see out of my drivers!  You put these five men on a team, you have 4 former Rookies of the Year, 2 former (multiple) Cup Series Champions, a two time Nationwide Series Champion, and five guys who can contend to be in the Chase every single year.  If this was my team, and I had the resources of a Gibbs or a Hendrick, my five guys would be in the Chase every single year!

Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon have won championships, Kyle Busch will win the championship this year, and within the next few years, I believe both Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. will have championships coming their way.  Who can't lose with these boys behind the wheel?
