The article presents a forecast for 2006 National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) season. There are at least 15 driver changes in the Nextel Cup Series. Some retired, and others moved to different teams or series. Teams will invent ways to get around NASCAR's five-test limit by rotating new drivers out of research and development seats and/or by competing full time in the Busch Series. Racer Carl Edwards is likely to win the 2006 Driver of the Year award. With crew chief Bob Osborne calling the shots, Edwards posted double digits in the win column — the first time a driver has done that since Jeff Gordon won 13 races in 1998.
