2017 Daytona 500 in 15 days Friday, February 10, 2017 Tweet

During the off-season, Look Ahead gives a snapshot of where drivers finished in 2016 and what’s ahead for them in 2017. We will look at drivers who finished in the top 40 in the Sprint Cup Series (now the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) in 2017) point standings and those who ended the XFINITY and Camping World Truck Series standings in the top 30 in points. Since many teams are still working on their 2017 plans, follow Rotoworld NASCAR Headlines for the latest updates. With 15 days to go until the 2017 MENCS season-opening Daytona 500, here are the final driver recaps followed by a tentative list of 2017 Cup driver/team lineups. NASCAR Cup Series (NSCS): 2016: Carl Edwards – Joe Gibbs Racing No. 19 Toyota Camry - In 36 races, the Columbia, MO driver scored three wins, six poles, nine top-5s, 18 top-10s, led 918 laps, had a 7.2 average start, a 13.9 average finish, earned 5,007 points and made the 2016 Chase to the Sprint Cup. Edwards made it through the Round of 16, Round of 12 and Round of 8 events to start in the season-finale Chase Championship 4 event. After a late-race wreck on a restart between Edwards and Joey Logano (both contenders for the championship, and both running in the top five at the time), Edwards’ car was destroyed and his chance at the title was over. He closed out the season fourth in the standings. Best 2016 NSCS starts: Pole – Texas 4/9, Bristol 4/17, Sonoma 6/26, Watkins Glen 8/7, Bristol 8/20 and Loudon 9/25 Best finishes: Win – Bristol 4/17, Richmond 4/24 and Texas 11/6 Last career NSCS win: Texas Motor Speedway on November 6, 2016. 2017 MENCS: Carl Edwards has decided to leave Joe Gibbs Racing and “pursue other interests outside of driving and will not compete in 2017”. He has not ruled out a return to driving in the future but will definitely be skipping the 2017 MENCS season. He avoided using the word “retired” in his interviews. Joe Gibbs Racing driver Daniel Suarez , the 2016 XFINITY Series Champion, moved up and took over JGR’s No. 19 Toyota Camry for 2017. Dave Rogers remains as crew chief for the No. 19 Cup team. 2016: Kyle Busch – Joe Gibbs Racing No. 20 Toyota Camry – In 36 races, the Las Vegas, NV driver scored four wins, two poles, 17 top-5s, 25 top-10s, led 1,379 laps, had a 9.6 average start, an 11.5 average finish, earned 5,035 points and made the 2016 Chase to the Sprint Cup. Busch made it through the Round of 16, Round of 12 and Round of 8 events to start in the season-finale Chase Championship 4 event.
