<p> Athlon Sports' 2011 Driver Countdown leads NASCAR fans through Speedweeks in Daytona.</p>

The Daytona 500 is right around the corner - and after that little football game that still needs to be played - the Great American Race is the next marquee sporting event on the sports junkie's calendar.

To kickoff our 2011 NASCAR coverage, Athlon Sports is counting down to the start of the 2011 Sprint Cup season with a top-30 driver countdown. Each driver profile offers a driver bio, in-depth 'state of the franchise' analysis, predictions for 2011, quotes from around the garage and past statistics. 

Athlon Racing Editor Matt Taliaferro will release two drivers per day until after the Super Bowl, where he will release the top ten drivers for 2011 one per day leading into Speed Weeks.
