Elliott couldn't defend his championship in 2021, but he continued to round into form as one of NASCAR's unquestioned elite racers at the ripe age of 26. Hendrick Motorsports has a two-headed beast at the top of its stable and Elliott should easily be "the guy" again this year.
In 2021, Larson raced a season for the ages, showing off his long-rumored unbelievable talent for once after all those years. At the present moment, it seems as if Larson could be gearing up to become one of NASCAR's all-time greats over the next decade-plus. Back-to-back championships feels entirely in the realm of possibility for Larson in 2022.

If a few factors worked out differently, Bowman's Martinsville win would have vaulted him into the Championship 4, and Phoenix would have changed for the better. Yet, it was not meant to be. 2021 still saw Bowman net a career-high four wins and he'll have to drive his tail off to match or top that in 2022.
Busch hated his car in 2021, but at no point, until he was officially eliminated, was Busch not a title contender. Given Joe Gibbs Racing improved the car in the offseason, the two time champion should be back among the elite of the elite racers in 2022.
Busch had a formidable 2021 Cup Series and kept his win streak alive ( eight straight). While he's moving to a second 23XI car for 2022, drivers should be worried that another Busch now has access to JGR equipment and data.
Blaney won three times and finished 7th in the 2021 standings. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him improve upon that in his first year with new crew chief Jonathan Hassler, who replaced the retiring Todd Gordon. Blaney got off to sharp start in 2022 with a fourth-place finish at Daytona.
