The Top Ten

1 Danica Patrick Danica Patrick Danica Sue Patrick is an American professional racing driver. She is the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel racing—her victory in the 2008 Indy Japan 300 is the only female win in an IndyCar Series race.

Marketing machine. Has some potential, but never lived up to it

2 Dale Earnhardt Jr

Good race car driver but here cause of Dale.

Most overrated sports figure ever!

3 Joey Logano Joey Logano

The Daytona 500 champ is more overrated than Danica?

4 Clint Bowyer
5 Juan Pablo Montoya

He's only known for that infamous jet dryer incident. Of all things he could crash into and of all scenarios that could happen...

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

Glad he was suspended! He assaulted someone. Should be in a jail somewhere

7 Jeff Burton
8 Tony Stewart Tony Stewart
9 Bobby Labonte
10 Ricky Stenhouse Jr

The Contenders

11 Trevor Bayne

Gonna be a long year for this kid. Can't even qualify better than Mike Bliss

12 Chase Elliott

Chase Elliot hasn't won a race with such a fast car as of December 2017 - kennywilliams21

I know he's young but people still obsess over him. He hasn't won a race as of June 2017


13 Robby Gordon
14 Austin Dillon
15 Jimmie Johnson Jimmie Johnson Jimmie Kenneth Johnson is an American professional stock car racing driver and a six-time champion in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Not a great driver but is decent
He is a product of Hendrick motorsports, I don't believe if you put him in the furniture row #78 car that he would be a contender

If he was little more than a product of Hendricks then why don't the other drivers of this team have the number of championships? - Speedracer61

16 Ty Dillon

Total idiot. Wouldn't be here if it weren't for his daddy

Here cause of daddy. Cries every time he loses

17 John Wes Townley

"John Wes Townley's in the top 10! "
Five laps later
"John Wes Townley's in the wall"

Here cause of Zaxby's

18 Kyle Larson Kyle Larson

He seriously just has a great car! He sucks or else he'd have more wins. His car is OP!
"Last Real Racer" - Kyle Larson himself, agreed by too many people.
"Next Jimmie Johnson" - Jeff Gordon

19 Martin Truex Jr. Martin 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.

Great car, terrible driver. Maybe if he were good then he'd have more than 9 wins in 14 years.

If he were a good driver, he would have won in other makes, not just Toyota. He is way overrated.

20 Kyle Busch Kyle Busch

He should be #1 on this list

21 Matt Tifft
22 Jeb Burton Jeb Burton

Ward's son won one race and then crashed after that. Ruined Bowman's chance of making the 500 with his driving

23 Tim George Jr

Applebee's bought him a car

24 Joe Nemechek

Starts and parks every race

25 Brad Keselowski Brad Keselowski
26 John Hunter Nemechek
27 Regan Smith
28 Jeff Gordon Jeff Gordon
29 Matt Kenseth Matt Kenseth
30 Austin Cindric
31 Brandon Jones
