Fan Awards: Biggest Disappointment

    Kasey Kahne literally went from the penthouse to the outhouse in 2007.

    The Gillett-Evernham Motorsports driver was a pre-season pick by many to win the 2007 NEXTEL Cup title.

    After a series-leading six victories in 2006 and an eighth place finish in the Chase, Kahne seemed poised to have a breakthrough season and continue his ascent up the NASCAR ladder.

    But instead Kahne suffered through a frustrating and dismal season.

    He struggled all season and didn’t make one visit to victory lane. After posting 12 top five finishes in 2006, he cracked the first five only once all season and tumbled down the standings to finish 19th in the final rundown.

    The runner-up award goes to Dale Earnhardt, Jr., who like Kahne, was plagued by problems all year long.

    Junior's farewell season with DEI was nothing but trouble with the No. 8 Chevrolet blowing engines in what seemed like a weekly basis.

    Earnhardt, Jr. failed to finish nine races in 2007 and for the second time in three seasons missed the Chase for the NEXTEL Cup.
