All Time Greatest NASCAR Drivers

The all-time greatest NASCAR drivers include members of the NASCAR Hall of Fame along with current top drivers in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the NASCAR Nationwide Series. Some of the best NASCAR drivers of all-time have a longer list of accomplishments than others but with a fan base of nearly 75 million fans, everyone is sure to have a good argument on why one racer is better than the next. Have an opinion? Tell is which NASCAR drivers you think are the best ever by adding your own list below!

Many would make the argument that the great Dale Earnhardt Sr. is the best NASCAR driver of all time despite his career coming to a sad end too soon. His seven Sprint Cup Championships is rivaled by only one other driver, who can also bring a good case for the best NASCAR driver of all-time, Richard Petty. Petty of course made his impact first, winning seven titled between 1964 and 1979, while Earnhardt dominated the next decade and a half with seven championships between 1980 and 1994.

Others will flock to a current driver as the best NASCAR driver of all time on the argument that Jimmie Johnson, who reigned supreme in the 2000s with five championships, is the best ever and still has plenty of years left in his career to prove that. Same goes for the likes of Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart who have been hot on Johnson's tail throughout the past decade.

All of these NASCAR drivers and many more listed below will be remembered as some of the best men and women to ever put on a fire suit and compete on the oval tracks. They might not be your typical athletes but considering NASCAR trails only professional football in viewers, they sure are doing something right.
