The overall best NASCAR drivers is a topic debated each weekend as the top NASCAR drivers in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the NASCAR Nationwide Series compete each weekend at some of the toughest NASCAR tracks around the country.

Every NASCAR fan has their own favorite drivers for different reasons. Some fans will prefer to back some of the more successful drivers like 2012 Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth or perennial favorites like Tony Stewart, Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch. Others will root for the underdog and back female NASCAR driver Danica Patrick.

While this list includes only active NASCAR drivers, not those who have since left racing, many of the names listed will easily go on to become some of the all-time best NASCAR drivers. Following in the footsteps of former NASCAR drivers like Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt, Sr., and David Pearson are big names like Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Bobby Labonte.

Whether you like a certain driver because of their sponsor, the make of their car, for a personal reason or just that they see a lot of success on the NASCAR circuit, there are no wrong answers here. Tell us which active NASCAR drivers are the best by adding your own list below!
