Photo Courtesy of NASCAR’s Media Site David Ragan #34 (Front Row Motorsports) Eric’s take: Ragan won in 2013 at Talladega and will have an identical season to last year. He may not win but the results will be a mirror image. The team doesn’t have all the resources to compete at a high level yet. Luke’s take: Ragan’s Talladega win was the underdog story of the year, and while it could happen again, the odds aren’t in his favor. I actually think Ragan could pull off a few top-10 runs, but not with anything approaching consistency. David Gilliland #38 (Front Row Motorsports) Eric’s take: I could basically write the same thing here as I did Ragan so refer above. Luke’s take: Could lightning strike twice? Well, it already has for Ragan, so my money is on Gilliland to…nah, never mind. Front Row is fun to root for a few times every season, but overall they’re going to struggle yet again and fail to reach Victory Lane. BK Racing Drivers #83, #93 Eric’s take: No word yet on who the two BK Racing drivers will be, but they won’t have any more luck than David Reutimann or Travis Kvapil. That team is not quite there yet as they will struggle no matter who’s piloting the BK racing (?) machines. Exclusive Interview with David Reutimann Luke’s take: I 100% agree. It will take a minor miracle for whoever takes the wheel of these machines to score a top-30 finish. I don’t understand the decision to let David Reutimann go. The guy is a two-time Sprint Cup winner! What do they expect, Mark Martin to agree to do some charity work, unretire (again), and drive for BK on the side? Hey, that might not be such a terrible idea. Let me go look up BK’s number… Casey Mears #13 (Germain Racing) Eric’s take: It will be the best season with Germain for Mears as they move to Chevy engines, but the team doesn’t have the resources to be a contending team. Mears will be a 20th-30th place driver all year and not contend very much. Luke’s take: Mears has made incremental progress with the #13 car over the past few years but I don’t see any big breakthroughs ahead. Mears struggled when he drove for Hendrick and RCR and I don’t see any reason to expect more than a handful of top-15’s this season (or ever).
