Race car fans are a passionate bunch. And, as with any sport, fans of race cars love to discuss who is the greatest driver of all time. Whether Formula One or NASCAR, fans of racing hotly debate the merits of various drivers—their championships, rivalries and the trophies that got away. Here at Goliath, we’re passionate about race car driving too and have some opinions of our own on who is the greatest driver in history. Here’s our list of the top 10 race car drivers of all time.
10. Jeff Gordon
An underrated driver in our view, Jeff Gordon deserves inclusion on this list for both his wins and style. A passionate, no holds barred racer, Jeff Gordon is one of the premier NASCAR drivers of all time with 88 wins, four championship titles, and three Daytona 500 cups to his name. Many critics claim he needs a fifth NASCAR title to enter the conversation as one of the best drivers in history. However, Gordon likely would have more championships to his name if it weren’t for constantly changing rules and gimmicky racing formats meant to draw in larger television audiences. Nevertheless, Jeff Gordon has been one of the most entertaining NASCAR drivers throughout his career and has a flare and competitiveness for racing that is all his own. He is a “champion” in every sense of the word.http://wtop.com/motorsports/2015/05/pace-driver-jeff-gordon-says-he-will-never-race-in-indy-500/ Source: Wtop.com
