Top Ten Worst NASCAR Drivers

Drivers who somehow had the talent to make it to NASCAR's big leagues, but failed to produce from there.

The Top Ten

1 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.

Let me first start off the Bush brothers are the worst. Whoever made this list must be fans of theirs becuase their the worst. I just don't think she has ever won a race, always wrecked, and always threw fits. She is honestly not very good. Not maybe the worst ever but certainly not good if she has never won and is usually not even in the top ten. I did always want to see her win one race but I don't THINK that happend but maybe.

Nobody here is being sexist putting a female in the sprint cup series was a good idea to somewhat balance out the two genders but putting danica in the cup series was a recipe for disaster and just to add to it shes a feminist and a feminist in a male dominated sport is not a recipe for disaster

She might have a chance at victory lane if all the other drivers stayed home but she would probably still wreck the car

Not a fan she is worse then Kyle Bush. Arrogant, rude, and not a good driver. I do not think she has won once. Someone more qualified would have been more then happy to have taken her place

2 Juan Pablo Montoya

If I was an owner, I would hire Kyle Busch over this guy. He can't keep a straight line and he likes to cause havoc in the last 10 races by not making the Chase and then wrecking everyone in the Chase. Just terrible

One you can't understand the guy and he only has one races on pit strategy but he can't win races anymore he only made chase once also.

Crashed into a jet drier during a yellow. Nothing is worse than that. It even had its hazards on to warn him to watch out...

Montoya was not to bad in nascar. It's just that he was given WAY too much hype in his first two year.

3 Jennifer Jo Cobb

You do see the guys on the list, don't you? 7 out of 10 to be exact. Sexist? No, realist.

She can hardly make it out of the garage

This list isn't sexist at all...

She can hardly make the first lap

4 Kevin Conway

he will never finish in the top 10 once in his career

Jeff Gordon said WORST EVER!

I try to forget about how bad this guy sucked.

Rookie of the year because the only rookie!

5 Norm Benning

Norm Benning is the nicest person you'll ever meet and he's consistent and finishes every race

Nobody knows who he is. Nobody SHOULD know who he is.

He’s just a normal old man that would kill you in a race just races for a lower team

6 Kim Crosby

Wrecked every car she had, always was way off the top speeds in qualifying/races, and only got there because she was a woman. The one good thing was her sponsorship.


7 Mike Harmon

Mike Harmon is a guy who barley works out the thing that surprised me was when he crashed very badly one of the top ten worst crashes in practice and WAS NOT INJURED

THIS guy is a CRIMINAL. Hate to "hate on" any driver but he is what he is. Belongs in prison.

I think his crash at Bristol in 2002 is a sign from God telling him to get out of the sport

Has been a backmarker his whole career in national series.

8 Scott Speed

He is just the worst he should be the worst because all he does is just drive his car like 70 mph

Terrible in formula 1 even worse in NASCAR

Cross dresses and paints his nails zebra stripes

Just plan terrible

9 Kyle Petty

What the heck why is he one of the worst he won more then Denny Hamlin

Only has popularity because of his Dad. Not as bad on T.V. though.

I don't feel as though he was even related to richard petty simply because he just drives so bad he drove the same stuff that the king won 200 races with and still only won 8! In my opinion he should be 1st on this list

Bad driver with douche haircut. Born on third base and brags about the triple he hit.

10 David Stremme

His statistics are even worse than Danica's at the Cup level! 3 top tens in 200 races!

He absolutely sucks had good equipment blew it. Buys his success if that's what you want to call it when he isn't turning people into the wall in a dirt car. When I get back to taking I will personal entera race just to door slam this asswhole

Failed with high end equipment

He's blind as a bat. Enough said.

The Contenders

11 Johnny Chapman
12 Daniel Suarez

He is a good driver

I think that this guy will be the best mexican nascar driver in the world because he was the first non-american guy who won a xfinity championship.

He sucks


13 Shane Hmiel

He failed a drug test and became a huge bust

14 JJ Yeley

Usually he's out of the race by lap 10 or several laps down. Just get out of the way.

Nascar's biggest bust for joe gibbs racing and now a start and parker.

Wasn’t even good in the Busch series and Gibbs replaced Bobby Labonte with this guy. If you can’t do well with the one of the best NASCAR teams, you don’t belong in the sport.

15 John Wes Townley

John Wrecks Weekly. His dad is still charging $0.25 for Zax sauce because of him.

He should be #1. He was wrecking in every race in 2009.

Has he EVER not crashed an entire weekend of NASCAR racing?

God thing he retired, he saved a lot of race cars.

16 Elliott Sadler

He's won races before. He made the Chase in the 1st year they had it. You may not think so but Elliott is actually a talented driver.

I don't understand how he gets all of these top-quality rides. He hasn't done anything in the Cup level.

Elliott Sadler is a great driver, he nearly won the Nationwide Championship a few years back, and in the early and mid 2000s he was always a factor in the Sprint Cup races.

He is an imbecile

17 Clint Bowyer

I will NEVER respect him after what happened at Phoenix 2012, and Richmond 2013. At least Kyle Busch doesn't try to cause wrecks that puts ALL OF NASCAR out of balance. He needs to be above guys like Kurt Busch, Steve Park, Matt Kenseth, Tony Stewart, Dale Earnhardt Jr, Bobby Labonte and Jeff Gordon. Those guys had talent. Clint Bastard? He in my mind is easily one of the 5 worst NASCAR drivers ever.

Pretty much the Richmond thing. Not sure why he wasn't legally investigated for conspiring to alter the outcome of a wagering sports event. Not to mention costing everyone on the NAPA team their jobs. That's about as sorry as it gets.

2013 Richmond. Enough said.

Clint Bowyer isn't just a NASCAR douchebag. He's pretty much an overall douchebag... Period. He's arrogant, a very obnoxious, sloppy drunk & disrespectful. Do I want to hang out with you? Um... No Clint. I don't make a habit of hanging out with people I want to throat punch...

18 Carl Long

He got negative points in 2009

Been in NASCAR since 1999 and has never won

He is not bad, just unlucky

Poor guy. No luck at all.

19 Dario Franchitti

For an indycar driver he should have drove better at nascar but he sucked

20 Hal Martin
21 Steve Wallace

Only here cause of daddy. Always finds new ways to crash cars and blames someone for his mistakes. Hope Tony Stewart beats him up

He crashed coming out of the garage one time. LOL

Only Steven can cause $500,000 dollers every weekend. He is just a money burner. Good thing that Rusty Wallace shut down the team, or else he would be needing a soup kitchen

Still feel bad for Rusty Wallace

22 Brian Vickers

I feel for the guy. Blood clots suck.

He and his team are gone. He doesn't have the opportunities he deserved. He needs to be moved back on this list.

He's a good driver, look at the top fives he has

He is trash... What a piece of trash.

23 Brian Scott

HE SPINS OUT EVERY SINGLE RACE, each race week I try to come up with at least 5 predictions that I think will happen. 1 of them is always "Brain Scott will spin out."

I hope nobody voted for him recently because he has improved a lot.

Just plain out bad I always predict he will spin out or wreak almost every week.

I remember he somehow won the 2015 Talladega pole

24 Erin Crocker

Does he need to be mentioned? No,

Also known as Ray Evernham's bitch.

25 Casey Atwood

Who would have known the Busch-series phenom would have laid such a big goose-egg in the Cup series?

He would've been amazing if Ray Evernham didn't screw him and the rest of the team over all for that skank Erin Crocker
