Who Does The Winning

As we know, not many NASCAR racers actually win. With only one winner per race there is only 36 times a year to add to your winning score. Since the dawn of NASCAR


We all know that in overall wins it’s the King, Richard Petty out front with an absolutely amazing 200 wins. I’m not going to say it will never be beaten, as one the great Fangio held a record that most agreed would never be broken, until of course one Michael Schumacher came along, so we can never say never.

At the halfway point of the 2007 season, looking at the all time wins there are only 5 current drivers in the top twenty, and of that only one, Jeff Gordon is in the top 10 (6th), so we can be safe to say that the King’s record will be safe for a little while.

If we were to assemble a NASCAR race with the top 43 winning drivers in history (of course it could never be done as a number have passed away) the field would be as follows, with only 11 active drivers as of 2007 : (*=active driver)
