4 - Ward Burton
Best Finish: 25th
Poles, Top-fives, top-10s, DNFs: 0, 0, 0, 0
Strengths: Experience. The elder Burton is the 2002 Daytona 500 winner who's got 24 top-Five and 82 top-10 finishes in his Nextel Cup career. It's also worth noting that he's got a lot of experience driving for single-car teams; most of his success came with the No. 22 on behalf of Bill Davis Racing, and he's also been the pilot of the Haas CNC No. 0. The fact that he's kind of a NASCAR cult hero with more fans than guys who've won 10 times as many races certainly doesn't hurt.
