= Rookie of the Year =

Jeff Burton, driving the #8 Ford for Stavola Brothers Racing, was named Rookie of the Year for 1994, posting two top-five finishes. He was followed by fellow Busch Series graduates Steve Grissom and Joe Nemechek, each of whom had three top-ten finishes. Loy Allen Jr., despite three poles, struggled to find consistency and finished far back in the standings, while Jeremy Mayfield and John Andretti bounced around different rides throughout the season. Mike Wallace (who started the year at Atlanta in March) and Jeff's older brother Ward were plagued by qualifying troubles all season long. Billy Standridge and Rich Bickle ran partial schedules and were not a factor.
