The 2022 NASCAR season was perhaps one of the most exciting ones on and off the track the sport has seen in quite some time. Roughly half of the full-time competitors in the series managed to win races, showing the parity in the sport is greater than ever. New stars were born in Tyler Reddick, Chase Briscoe, and others. We saw the rise of Trackhouse Racing and the resurgence of Richard Petty’s NASCAR team as well.

Oh yeah, and Ross Chastain pulled off a “Hail Melon” for the ages at Martinsville that may have been the single most iconic moment in modern NASCAR history.
