With more than 60 drivers from 21 countries competing in this series across all classes last season, the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series features the most diverse cast of drivers in any category of stock car racing. There’s no shortage of talent in the drivers that competed in this series with series champions such as series champions Alon Day and Loris Hezemans, up-and-coming talents such as Vittorio Ghirelli and Gianmarco Ercoli and heavily experienced veterans such as former Formula One champion Jacques Villeneuve and sports car racing star Marc Goossens.

NASCAR Whelen Euro Series consists of two main classes: EuroNASCAR PRO and EuroNASCAR 2. Which class a driver is allowed to compete is determined by the driver grading that they receive from the series: EuroNASCAR 2 is restricted towards those graded as Silver/Bronze by the series, while EuroNASCAR PRO allows driver from all grade levels to compete.

Drivers are allowed to compete in both classes if they and/or the team wishes to do so and while a new driver is encouraged to make their debut in EuroNASCAR 2, a driver can directly make their debut in EuroNASCAR PRO. If a team fields a driver in both classes, then the team must field the exact same car for both of their drivers.

A third class, EuroNASCAR Club Challenge, was introduced in 2017 as a regularity-based championship intended for amateur drivers to experience the EuroNASCAR stock cars without having to worry about the competition aspect. Drivers from the two main classes of Euro Series may use the Club Challenge class as a method to get more practice time and while they would still be recognized as entrants in the Entry List, they would be ineligible to be classified and score championship points.

Listed below are the drivers that are scheduled to compete in the 2022 season and drivers that competed in at least one race of the 2020 season. The drivers are ordered based on their car number followed by the ordering of which races they entered should the team enters more than one (1) driver during the 2022 season.
