Texas Motor Speedway hasn't be around very long; it all started in 1997 with Jeff Burton winning the first ever race held in Texas for the then NASCAR Winston Cup Series. Jeff Burton was the first driver to ever win there twice with the other time being in 2007.

Although he has two wins, Jeff Burton doesn't even make the list of greatest drivers to ever win at Texas Motor Speedway. See who did in the slides that follow.

The former open-wheel driver turned 2-Time NASCAR Champion Tony Stewart took the checkered flag at Texas Motor Speedway twice in his career: once in 2006 and the other time was in 2011. Each win came in a Chevrolet but with two different numbers on the side.

The former NASCAR and Daytona 500 Champion Matt Kenseth won at Texas Motor Speedway two times in the 23 times that NASCAR has ran there. His first win at Texas came in 2002 and the last came in 2011.

Mr. 6-Time has made it onto, I believe, every single list I have put together. With six NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championships I can tell that he belongs. Johnson won at Texas Motor Speedway just one time in his career. That one win came in 2007, which was right in the middle of his dominance and run of five championships in a row.

You know I had to add at least one older driver in this list. Even though he could have very well been third or even fourth on the list, I believe that second place is a really decent spot to place Dale Jarrett. Jarrett won at Texas Motor Speedway all the way back in 2001 for his first and only win at the track that has became a favorite of several drivers.

He may not have the number of championships like Jimmie Johnson has but four of them isn't very bad either for Jeff Gordon. Gordon has just one lone win at Texas Motor Speedway which came in 2009.
