As the reigning NASCAR Cup Series champion, the Hendrick Motorsports driver will have a target on his back. Considering that everyone will be competing with the Gen 7 cars, the competition will be a lot harder. This is because not much is known about how the grid will be affected by the new introductions.

Of course, the paddock is fervently testing the new cars, and the latest test is at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Once that test wraps up, as well as the Daytona test later this month, the rules package will be confirmed. Larson is confident that he can successfully defend his crown. However, many of his Cup Series rivals will be keen to stop him and win the title themselves.

Chief among them will be the 2020 champion and teammate Chase Elliott. Other candidates include Denny Hamlin, who will be desperate to clinch his first Cup Series title. Apart from him, there are drivers like Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr, Kevin Harvick, Ryan Blaney, Joey Logano, and many more. There are even newcomers like Austin Cindric and Harrison Burton who could be dark horses for a Cup Series title.
