Top Ten Worst NASCAR Drivers


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Robby Gordon

Wrecks a lot despite 2 wins. Wrecks others and is just a big idiot

Talk about a hothead, Great on dirt sucks on pavement. During off road races likes to cover the spectators with dirt. Competed in gruling Dakar Ralley. I surprised he has not killed anyone. He's safe as long he stays off paved roads and out of stock cars.

Biggest fraud in NASCAR. Robby Gordon said it best about him, he pretends to be a nice guy but he's not. Of course Robby's one to talk.

He acts like he is some hot, he'd be a better comedian or t.v host

Only won because of DEI. He would STILL be winless if it wasn't for Dale Sr. - Drippycheesycanoli

After the Duels and crashing some good cars, Jeb, you deserve to be on the list

His car can't even turn so until you make NASCAR keep your mouth closed

All he did is crash and get lapped. Then he wrecked Bowman and made him DNQ

46Denny HamlinV1 Comment
47Kevin Lepage

Nobody even mentioned his moronic decision to wreck the whole field at Talladega in 2008, he should be WAY higher.

My dad knew this guy in high school. - Tacocheese

49Dale Earnhardt Jr.Ralph Dale Earnhardt Jr., known professionally as Dale Earnhardt Jr., Dale Jr., or just Junior, is an American professional stock car racing driver and champion team owner.

The drivers all gave him a free one on the first race he was in after losing his father. He is with the best racing crew on the circuit and still he limps in every week. Change his name and he would be racing dirt ovals.

He's one of the best NASCAR drivers out there. He won four races in the 2014 season and made it pretty far in the chase. He didn't get to where he is by his daddy he got recognized though his daddy

One of the "worst drivers ever" yet he has 26 more wins than all of you couch analysts combined... but that's none of my business. I can name HUNDREDS of drivers worse than him. Probably thousands.

If Dale was bad, his father would be facing away from the hole in the clouds.

He is not as much of a whiny little baby like his dad

50Kurt BuschKurt Thomas Busch is an American professional stock car racing driver. He currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

He has really turned his life and career around the past few years. I thought he handled the trained assassin situation great even after NASCAR jumped the gun on the suspension.

51Brad Keselowski

He is a uncontrolled kid. He doesn't use his head and only cares about himself. He ruined Deny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth, and Jeff Gordon's chances at a championship. He should drive smart

Wrecks people to win. Ruined Matt Kenseth, Denny Hamlin, and Jeff Gordon's chances at a championship. He is bad for NASCAR

He looks like a donkey. Drives like one too

Reckless and an absolute dip, he did not deserve the 2012 championship. He races too aggressive too early

52Austin Dillon

At the coke zero 400 he hit the catch fence so he should have some respect

Not as bad as Ty, but at least he has some respect

Ekrantina Ulyana Ivanhov recommended him. Also, I put Richard Petty on the list

He usually places last place not counting the ones who crashed...

55Martin Truex Jr.Martin Lee Truex Jr. is an American professional stock car racing driver. He currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

I'm tired of people treating Truex like a lost puppy because he was sent to a single car team. Truex says he didn't know Bowyer wrecked but it was probably a lie. Bowyer said he got "loose" and spun. I'm sure at the team meeting the villans had a plan to he revenge at Gordon when he made a mistake and made anger get the best of him. So then they decided to cheat to get Truex in the Chase. I'm sure 100 percent Truex was at the meeting when they discussed the plan. Instead of talking about race setups they decide how to get in the chase without doing anything. It tells Truex can't drive and tells MWR doesn't have fast enough cars to keep up. Glad Truex finished around 26th in points last year and that he ran with guys like Alex Bowman and Michael Annett. Truex is easily a bad driver that has won 2 races and is considered a top notch driver.

He's not bad anymore, just set the record for most laps led in a race, no foul play either. There was only one green flag pass that whole face and he led all but 12 laps!

won busch series title but kant make the chase 2 years in a row

He is a great driver he just needs more luck

57Steve Park

Whoever put him on this list obviously never watched racing. Steve Park could've been a legend if not for his injuries.

That's only because of his busch darlington 2001 wreck he was top 10 in Winston Cup standings before that wreck he was just unlucky

Steve was with DEI and RCR, crashed all the time. Caused more wrecks than any other driver. Easily one of the worst.

58Carl Long

Never had the funding. Remember that wreck at Rockingham? Got busted with an engine too big at the All Star Open and lost a bunch of money I don't think he's raced since

He was successful in he Busch series. So that means he is not just good at trucks

60Trevor Bayne

Hugely overrated ever since winning the Daytona 500 as a rookie. He's been horrible ever since going to cup full time.

I give a ton of respect to the 2011 Daytona 500 winner, and mabye he's not good because he gets caught in the wrong place at the wrong time
