This article is part of our NASCAR Draft Kit series.
The 2020 rookie class will be a lot larger than last season's group. The level of talent is way off the charts when we examine their racing resumes. We have some very seasoned, young Xfinity Series drivers who will make the transition this season, and they're not entirely unfamiliar with NASCAR Cup Series cars.
In addition to our full-time rookies some young drivers will make part-time forays into the world of NASCAR Cup Series racing from the lower divisions of the sport. The transition from the Xfinity Series or Gander Outdoors Truck Series to the top division of NASCAR is always a big adjustment for young drivers.
However, as last season showed, drivers like Ryan Preece and Daniel Hemric will have their highlights to go along with their struggles. We'll look at the ROTY candidates and some of the young, up-and-coming drivers who will make part-time starts in the NASCAR Cup Series this season, and give you some in-depth analysis on which rookie drivers are the ones to watch closely.
