2002 Rookie of the Year Candidates(ROTY)

Brendan Gaughan, #62
Bill Lester, #8
Donnie Neuenberger, ?
Trent Owens, ?
Loni Richardson, #73
Angie Wilson, #81
This is unofficial
note: it is my understanding that if a driver has driven in five or more races in a season in the upper NASCAR series, a driver cannot be eligible for the ROTY in a ‘lower’ series
so Robert Pressley and Jason Leffler are not eligible
