With the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series set to take a break this weekend in observance of the annual Easter holiday, some drivers can certainly use the time off. Up next, we rank the season's five most disappointing drivers, so far.

5. Clint Bowyer
Bowyer is 18th in the standings -- just one spot better than where he finished in 2014 -- and has failed to record a top-10 finish since coming home seventh in the Daytona 500.

4. Carl Edwards
In his first season with Toyota and Joe Gibbs Racing, Edwards was expected to deliver big and immediate results. Instead, he's struggled just to run in the top 10 and holds a best finish of 12th. The only good news? Toyota and JGR seem to be gradually improving, which only bodes well for 'Cousin Carl.'

3. Greg Biffle
In a season that some observers believed would mark the return of Roush Fenway Racing to NASCAR prominence, the organization's lead driver has openly criticized the speed in the company's cars. It's no wonder, considering a 10th-place finish in the Daytona 500 is his only top-10 in six starts.

2. Jeff Gordon
The start of Gordon's last full season in NASCAR's top series hasn't gone as planned -- and that's putting it delicately. He crashed on the final lap of the Daytona 500 and wrecked out early the next weekend at Atlanta. While Gordon has finished no worse than ninth in his last three starts, he's still bereft of a top-five finish.

1. Tony Stewart
As bad starts go, they don't get much worse than what Stewart has endured so far in 2015. Seeking his first win since June 2, 2013, the Stewart-Haas Racing co-owner/driver has been consistently slow and sits a dismal 32nd in the standings due in large part to four finishes of 30th or worse.
