quote:Another yahoo question: how did they come up with the A, B and C list of drivers?
And will those remain the same all season or do they shuffle up who is on which list?
A, B, C drivers are picked by yahoo people before the season and the driver's in those categories will remain in them all year. Nobody switches during the season. There is potential for a driver to miss some time, like Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, Tony Stewart, Dale Jr, etc in years past and replacement drivers for them would get added to the list as new C drivers to choose.
In general drivers are based on how they did last season. The A drivers are the ones considered with the best chance of winning the race every week. There are a couple drivers that yahoo puts in this group every year that is noncompetitive compared to their peers, but they may have been B drivers last year that overachieved and they wound up in A this year. B drivers are the ones either moving up the ladder from C, or down from A and mostly the middle of the pack drivers that haven't had a history strong enough to put them in A, but are better than C. Every year there are a couple really good drivers in B that then end up being As the following year. C drivers are rookie, underfunded teams and part time drivers. There is always a couple really good Cs and then you have to try and uncover some diamonds in the rough to get enough for 36 starts.
