I was just reading an article on racingone that listed this year's rookie candidates and I thought it might be fun to have a poll on who we think will win the Rookie of the Year.  Frankly, I don't know myself!   Shocked 

So, come on and vote and post your reasons why you think your guy will win.

Ragan won't get it because he is sharing driving duties, right?

Montoya has too much to learn, right?

Reutimann won't because he will be in a Toyota, right?

That leaves 2 to choose from, afaic

Menard maybe....

Allmendinger may be in the cat birds seat....

I honestly don't know but I am going to vote for one of them later.  Probably by wishing, not objectivity

David Ragan is full-time in the 6 car.  Regan Smith is the one running a very limited schedule, sharing the 01 Army car with Mark Martin.  I tried to list only full-time rookies (I think).

 It will be Menard because he is driving a DEI car and has the most experiance in Cup and Busch cars compared to the others.

I picked Montoya because it can't be too hard going from the very sophisticated Formula 1 cars to the easier (relatively speaking) NASCAR vehicles.  I won't be surprised if he wins at least two races this year.

I agree. BTW, are we gonna save this for a year so we can see who was correct?

I believe Menard would be my shoo-in pick if he was driving for Roush, Gibbs, Hendrick or Childress.  I really believe DEI will be overly focused on getting Jr his championship and their other drivers will sacrifice for that (nothing new with that).  I guess I'll go with Montoya so everyone else will have a chance..
