NASCAR has included a little check box on its hard card application for drivers this year.

The form now requires drivers to declare which championship they're running for in 2011.

The object of the rules change is to prevent a full-time Cup driver from invading and winning the series title in the Nationwide or Camping World Series.

Here's a look at 10 young drivers who may be able to elevate their profile through their points battle for the title in NASCAR's junior circuit.
