Fueling the Next Generation

The 2018 NASCAR Next class consists of nine up-and-coming stars from across the United States. Each driver boasts an established resume of success and possesses the talent necessary to ascend to NASCAR’s highest level.


Many of the young stars in NASCAR’s upper ranks are products of the NASCAR Next initiative. The program helped them hone their skills on and off the race track. They continue to compete for wins and earn the sport’s highest accolades.
