NASCAR All-Time Wins List – From 1st to 203rd

NASCAR all-time wins

NASCAR All-time Wins List:

In NASCAR’s almost 75-year history, there have been 203 different winners. The most recent season saw Austin Cindric, Chase Briscoe, Ross Chastain, Daniel Suarez, and Tyler Reddick added to the list. Those new names into the record books won a total of eight races in 2023. Tyler Reddick not only got his first NASCAR win, but his first three – Road America, Indianapolis, and Texas. The NASCAR All-Time Wins List includes legendary names like Petty, Earnhardt, Pearson, Allison, and Waltrip. Current veteran drivers are vying to move up in the ranks, such as Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick. And with 7-time Champion Jimmie Johnson returning to the sport in 2023 will we see a shuffle in the ranks of the top ten?

#1 – Richard Petty – 200

The King, Richard Petty, holds the record for all-time wins at 200. Petty also holds many other NASCAR records – seven Cup championships, seven Daytona 500 wins, and twenty-seven wins in a season, ten consecutively. Along with his wins, he holds the record for pole positions (123) and over seven hundred top ten finishes in his 1000+ career starts. Notable wins include the 1984 Firecracker 400, his final win, in front of then-President Ronald Reagan. With wins and records like these, there is no doubt why Petty is called ‘the King’.

#2 – David Pearson – 105

Nicknamed ‘The Silver Fox’, Pearson earned 105 wins in 574 starts. Pearson collected notable wins at the 1976 Daytona 500, three Southern 500’s, three World 600’s, and three Talladega 500’s, earning him three Cup championships over his career. Most recognized for his tenure in the famous Wood Brother’s #21 Ford, Pearson was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in the inaugural class in 2010.

#3 – Jeff Gordon – 93

Driving the iconic #24 Chevrolet, Jeff Gordon collected 93 Cup Series wins. Three Daytona 500’s, three World 600’s, four Talladega 500’s, five Brickyard 400’s, and six Southern 500’s, giving him the record for most crown jewel race wins. Those wins earned him titles in 1995, 1997, 1998, and 2001. Gordon retired in 2015, after winning his second-to-last race at Martinsville, substituting for an injured Dale Earnhardt Jr. in 2016. He would be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2019. Gordon now holds an executive role at Hendrick Motorsports co-owning the #48 Chevrolet, and having equity in the #24 car.

#4 – Darrell Waltrip – 84

Darrell Waltrip won 84 Cup Series races over his career, spanning from 1972 to 2000, earning three titles in 1981, 1982, and 1985. He holds the race win record at Bristol Motor Speedway with twelve, seven of those consecutively, won five World 600s and the 1989 Daytona 500. Waltrip was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2012 and recently retired from his role as a commentator on Fox’s NASCAR broadcasts.

#5 – Bobby Allison – 84

Tied with Darrell Waltrip, his long-time rival, Bobby Allison was a founding member of the ‘Alabama Gang’, a group of drivers who raced the many short tracks around Hueytown, AL, chasing the high win purses. Allison, well-known for his NASCAR career, also raced in Indy Car, Trans-Am, and Can-Am. A Cup Champion in 1983 and winning three Daytona 500s (1978, 1982, and 1988), Allison was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2011.

#6 – Jimmie Johnson – 83

Starting his career in desert racing, Jimmie Johnson caught the eye of Jeff Gordon. In 2002, Johnson went full-time in the Cup series with Hendrick Motorsports and Lowes, an iconic partnership. Johnson won in his 13th career start at Fontana, his home track. Johnson and the #48 team would begin their era of dominance, earning five straight championships from 2006 to 2010.

In 2013, Johnson would win the Daytona 500 and five more races en route to his sixth title. 2016 saw Johnson earn a record-tying seventh title, matching Dale Earnhardt and Richard Petty. In 2020, Johnson would retire from full-time competition with eighty-three wins, 222 top-five finishes, and 35 pole positions. Jimmie Johnson is now a co-owner of Petty GMS Racing and will be making a return to NASCAR at the 2023 Daytona 500, giving him a chance to break his tie with Cale Yarborough.

#7 – Cale Yarborough – 83

Tied with Jimmie Johnson, Cale Yarborough is a four-time Cup Series champion. Winning four Daytona 500’s with back-to-back wins in 1983 and 1984, five Southern 500s, and three wins at Talladega. Yarborough scored 83 wins, 319 top-tens, and 69 career pole positions. Famously, Yarborough and Donnie Allison in 1979, fought in the field on the Daytona backstretch after dueling and wrecking each other for a chance at the win. Yarborough raced for many teams throughout his career such as The Wood Brothers and Junior Johnson. In 2011, Yarborough was elected into the NASCAR Hall Of Fame.

#8 – Dale Earnhardt – 76

The Intimidator, the Man in Black, is one of NASCAR’s biggest stars. Earnhardt scored 76 career wins throughout his 26-year career, along with seven championships, at the time tying himself with Richard Petty. Earnhardt was known for his dominance on the superspeedways, winning ten races at Talladega and three races at Daytona including the 1998 Daytona 500. He also has 18 non-points paying wins at Daytona, and three wins at the All-Star Race, including his famous Pass in the Grass in 1987. Earnhardt would tragically pass in 2001 on the final lap of the Daytona 500. His death would launch a revolution in driver safety throughout racing.

#9 – Kyle Busch – 60

Tied with Kevin Harvick with 60 wins, Kyle Busch is known for his hot temper and M&M’s #18 Toyota. Beginning his career with Hendrick Motorsports, he scored his first win at Fontana in 2005. He had three more wins with Hendrick before taking a gamble and moving to Joe Gibbs Racing and a new manufacturer in Toyota. Since then, Busch has earned two championships, 2015 and 2019, two Brickyard 400s, a World 600, and a Southern 500. In 2022, Busch announced he will be moving from Joe Gibbs Racing to Richard Childress Racing, to drive the #8 Chevrolet.

#10 – Kevin Harvick – 60

Tied with Kyle Busch with 60 wins, Kevin Harvick had big shoes to fill when he began his career. Called to drive the #29, formerly the #3, for Richard Childress Racing, after Dale Earnhardt passed at Daytona. He won his first race at Atlanta in just his second start, beating Jeff Gordon in a photo finish in 2001. Driving for both Richard Childress Racing and currently at Stewart-Haas, Harvick has achieved a Hall of Fame-worthy career. Winning a Daytona 500 in 2007, Harvick also has three Brickyard 400s, two World 600s, and won the 2014 title. Harvick, along with Busch, are the only two full-time drivers in the top ten of the NASCAR all-time wins list.
