    New year, might as well update my favorite driver list. I use to just not really care who won the race, but now I really want to have a few driver to actually pull for.

    1) Matt DiBenedetto - My new favorite driver, after I saw he had resigned with BK Racing, I wanted to pull for him. He had an amazing season last year in sub par equipment. He has a ton of talent.
    2) Kyle Busch - His new attitude after last season's injuries have grown on me, and after seeing him come back from a horrible injury not only to win a race, but the championship its self, that's impressive.
    3) Dale Earnhardt Jr. - Just a classy guy with a huge respect for the history of the sport, and a heck of a racer too.

    Harry Gant.

    Now? I pull for several drivers, I am a Ford guy and love the Wood Brothers being back so I think Ryan Blaney might be my new favorite.

    With Jeff Gordon retired, Trevor Bayne steps up as the new favorite. I'm also a huge fan of Regan Smith.

    Outside of that, I don't really have anymore favorites. I always find myself watching Chris Fontaine when I go to the Truck races at Talladega and Simon Pagenaud when I watch IndyCar.

    Grant Enfinger graduated from the University of South Alabama, so that's pretty cool.

    I suppose I'll update my list. I have different tiers in cup. So I have what I would consider my core 5, and then some guys that I would still consider some of my favorites but aren't in that tier. If that makes sense. I'm just gonna name the main 5 in cup rather than post a long list.
    All-Time: Jeff Gordon. Weird having to make that declaration.

    Cup:

    1. Chase Elliott- Watched the guy race at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Bandoleros and Legends cars when he was literally a child. The fact that he'll be the one replacing Gordon is an unlikely but awesome scenario.
    2. Dale Jr- Has continued to rise on the list for the last 3 years or so.
    3. Austin Dillon- Will probably always be on the list. Liked him since the beginning. Also unknowingly saw him race legends cars back in the day.
    4. Joey Logano- I'd label him as a bit farther back than the top 3, but I'll put him in the top group. My rooting interest in him initially started as a joke to annoy my friends. But he's climbed the list for a variety of reasons. I personally appreciate the way he handled all the controversy. But more than anything I met him at a test session. He was busy working on the new package but still took time to sign autographs and take pictures with every single person that asked and it was not a tiny crowd.

    Xfinity:
    1. Bubba Wallace
    2. Erik Jones

    Trucks:
    Still figuring trucks out this year. Leaning Cole Custer, Christopher Bell, and/or Daniel Hemric at the moment, but we'll see how things play out.

    IndyCar:
    1. James Hinchcliffe- Not even a discussion. One of my favorite human beings in all of motorsports. Dude's also hilarious.
    2. Conor Daly.- Thrilled to see him in a full-time ride.

    IMSA/Sports Cars
    1. Sean Rayhall- I'm not a massive follower of Sports Car racing, but with Rayhall being a full-time competitor I'll definitely try to keep up with it more. Much like Chase Elliott, been watching him since he was running Legends cars. I want to see him do well wherever he races.
