2003 Rookie of the Year Candidates

Chris Bingham, ?
Chad Blount, #26/66
Joey Clanton, #?
Coy Gibbs, #18
Damon Lusk, #6
Chase Montgomery, #27
Regan Smith, #?
David Stremme, #1
Jason White, #0
?Brian Winters, #?
note: it is my understanding that if a driver has driven in five or more races in a season in an upper NASCAR series (Winston Cup),
a driver cannot be eligible for the ROTY in a ‘lower’ series
#20-Mike Bliss nor #5-Brian Vickers are NOT running for Rookie of the Year
(even thou they may have yellow stripes on tracks they have not competed on before).
