So now what? Lets look at each series, starting with NASCAR. With the Gen 6 Cars coming into action for the first time, it is tough to predict who will win and who won't. But it's hard to imagine a great team like Hendrick Motorsports faltering in any way, shape, or form. They started strong, but can they keep it up? Tough competition will come from reigning champs Team Penske, as well as Stewart Haas, Joe Gibbs, and Roush Fenway.

In F1, you will most likely see Red Bull domination again. I, for one, am hoping for someone other than Vettel to dominate. A driver change at McLaren might bring some new life to the team with Sergio Perez replacing Lewis Hamilton, who went to Mercedes to replace the retired Michael Schumacher. At Ferrari, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa return for another season. Fernando Alonso, in my opinion, has the best chance to take down Red Bull. Honestly though, it will be hard to top the Bull.

Indycar is different than F1 and NASCAR in that a multitude of drivers have a chance to win the championship. Franchitti, Dixon, Power, Castroneves, Hunter-Reay, Rahal, Pagenaud, Wilson, Hinchcliffe, Hildebrand, Servia, Andretti, and the list goes on. In F1, there are four to six drivers who have a legitimate chance to take the title, and about ten to twelve in NASCAR. I think Ryan Hunter-Reay and Andretti Autosport are strong, but Chip Ganassi and Team Penske will be out for revenge as they look to resubmit their authority.

Will we see the historically dominant teams return to power in their respective series? Let me know what you think.
