Over the years many NASCAR drivers have come and gone and have left their own mark on the sport. From the past and current racers, from current and future hall of famers, some NASCAR drivers have separated themselves from the rest.

From 1949 and heading into a new season into 2013 many racers have become some of the greatest NASCAR has ever seen. Many became have stated their claim to become Hall of Famers and others are well on their way to achieve that honor.
Within all these years and seasons that have gone on by five drivers have become the five greatest NASCAR drivers of all time. Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt, Bobby Allison, Cale Yarborough, and Jimmie Johnson have all set the mark on what it takes to be one of the greatest to ever race on the track.
All five drivers whether current or legend each left their own mark that will least as long as NASCAR continues to host races. Several of these drivers set records that have gone unbroken over the years. Within just two of these drivers one of them set a record years ago that one recently broke.
All five drivers have gone on to win several of the sport’s top honors and accomplishments. All five have even gone on to win some of the sport’s biggest races.
Most of these drivers even competed against each other to become some of the greatest the sport has ever seen. While most of the five drivers no longer compete their records will still be intact going into the 2013 season.
