2014 Predicted Points Finish: #23

While he didn't have a great 2013 season, Almirola did take baby steps in the right direction in what was just his second full-time season at the Cup level. His 6 top-10s and 18.8 average finish were both career bests, and he finished a respectable 18th in points. Richard Petty Motorsports has extended Almirola's contract through 2016 so the organization is committed to developing him. A true breakout campaign may be another year away, but in the meantime, he should continue to provide top-20 finishes on a consistent basis.
