NASCAR has been described as a white-knuckle thrill ride that people all across the country enjoy, but most of us know that it isn’t the track, the crowds, or even the cars that define the sport. Not even the sponsors can steal the thunder of what truly matters in a race – the racers. While some of us diehards might have some disputes over who we might consider to be the top 3 NASCAR racers, I think we can all agree that the ones who make this list are just as deserving and impressive as the next.
1. Jeff Gordon
You’ve followed his career and you may have even gotten a look in the driver’s seat if you get your racing channels from a direct tv package , so what more can we say about this living legend? With 80 wins under his belt, Gordon is fixing to be a champ.
2. Dale Earnhardt Sr.
He was the best NASCAR had ever seen commanding both control and incredible judgment. He wasn’t called “The Intimidator” for nothing and he will be sorely missed.
3. David Pearson
Possessing both smooth control and overwhelming finesse he was another one of the best to come out of NASCAR. Known as “The Silver Fox,” he dominated with 105 wins and three championships under his belt.
