After years of knocking at the door, this year a new driver will hoist the NASCAR Sprint Cup trophy. Third in the standings the last two seasons, this season will belong to Kevin Harvick. The RCR driver will not only excel during the regular season – as he has begun to do on an annual basis – but he’ll carry that through the postseason. With crew chief Shane Wilson at the helm, and with RCR dropping back to a three-car operation, Harvick will step up and become a father and a Cup champion in the same year. —Lee Spencer and Rea White
