Top 4 Sprint Cup Ford Drivers

By

Who are the NASCAR Sprint Cup Drivers that make up Fords Blue Oval Brigade? Here are the top Ford drivers in the sport today.

1. Carl Edwards

Roush-Fenway driver Carl Edwards came to Cup racing in the middle of 2004 to replace Jeff Burton in the #99. Carl then scored his first Cup win in March of 2005 in Atlanta and has been up front a lot recently. Carl is a real fan favorite because he likes to do backflips off of his car after he wins. He has a huge future in front of him.

2. Matt Kenseth

Winner of the 2000 Raybestos Rookie Of The Year honors and the 2003 Cup Championship Matt Kenseth quietly leads his Jack Roush Ford to the front most every week. Matt isn't the type to talk trash, he lets his driving do the talking for him and his record is clear. He beat Dale Earnhardt Jr. for the 2000 Rookie title and then dominated NASCAR Cup racing with a runaway Championship in 2003 that caused NASCAR to create the "Chase For The Cup" format just to prevent him from doing it again.

3. Greg Biffle

Greg Biffle won the 2000 Craftsman Truck Series Championship and then backed that up with the 2002 Busch Series Championship. Are there more championships in Greg's future? Those stories are still to be written but clearly he knows what it takes to win titles and he is with a top-notch team in the form of Jack Roush.

4. Jamie McMurray

Jamie McMurray started six races in 2002 as a fill-in for the injured Sterling Marlin. That year he set a modern-era NASCAR record by winning a Cup series race in only his second start. Since then McMurray has struggled, finding Victory Lane only one more time (Daytona - July 2007) in his cup career. He has raw talent and a top Roush Fenway Racing team so his potential is unlimited.
