By Farrah Kaye
Staff Writer,

(EDITOR'S NOTE : takes a look at the five drivers who are competing for the NASCAR Nationwide Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award. Today's driver: Charles Lewandoski.)

Driver: Charles Lewandoski

Date of birth: May 18, 1985

Team: Various (most recently Go Green Racing)

Crew chief: Various

Past racing accomplishments: Youngest winner in NASCAR Late Model division at Stafford Motor Speedway (age 16 in 2002); driver coach for Jeffrey Earnhardt (2007)

Outlook for season: Lewandoski would be a great contender for rookie of the year if he could find a team. He's driven for three teams in three races for three manufacturers so far in 2011. However, not counting the one start-and-park, he finished 21st and 25th, which is around where Truex and Hill are running, if not better.
