Ford cars accounted for 19 wins on the NASCAR circuit in 2018. Can they hold onto the Manufacturers’ Championship again with strong seasons from Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski, and Kevin Harvik?
Past Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Champions
|2017||Martin Truex Jr.|
Joey Logano won his first career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Championship in dramatic fashion with a victory at the Ford EcoBoost 400 in late November.
The Team Penske driver wrapped up 2018 with three wins, 13 top-5 finishes and 26 top-10 finishes. Not bad for a guy nicknamed “Slowey.”

Drivers with the Most Cup Championships
What do Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt, and Jimmie Johnson have in common? In addition to being NASCAR royalty, all three drivers have also won seven Cup championships. Even if Johnson doesn’t surpass the King and the Intimidator this year, he can hold his head high as the only driver to ever win five consecutive titles.

Could 2019 be Denny Hamlin’s year? The Tampa native avoided multiple fiery pile-ups to win the Daytona 500 for the second time in his career. It was Hamlin’s first NASCAR win in over a year, but it likely won’t be his last.
