Brad Keselowski- 67 Wins

Brad, a Michigan native who has been racing since 2004, currently is a full-time contender in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, where he drives the number 2 Ford Mustang for Team Penske.
He is also a part-time racer in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, where he drives the No. 12 Mustang for Team Penski. Growing up in a family of racers, it was only natural that Brad would join the ranks. While he ultimately placed 12th in the Daytona 500, the racer already has much to be proud of; an impressive 67 race wins.
Jeff Gordon- 93 Wins

By age 20, he became the youngest person ever to win the USAC Silver Crown. Not only does he have a hunky, Tom Cruise look, but he has also brought a much-needed freshness to the sport. By the time he retired in 2015, he had 93 wins to his name, the third-most in the history of NASCAR.
Dale Earnhardt Jr.- The "Pied Piper" of Daytona
Being born to the great Dale Earnhardt Sr. leaves you little choice but to be a great racer yourself, especially when you have the same name. While he’s known for being the son of one of NASCAR’s best drivers in history, he has made his own name for himself. Dale, otherwise known as the “Pied Piper” of Daytona, won the Daytona 500 twice; in 2004 and 2014.
He also won the Most Popular Driver Award fifteen times in a row, from 2003-2017. If that doesn’t impress you, maybe his $400 million net worth will. Earnhardt has won 26 Cup Series. Despite his wins, he chose to retire in 2017. Nowadays, you can find him as an analyst for NASCAR on NBC.
Buck Baker- 635 Races
Buck Baker was a bus driver before he got started as a stock car driver. He raced in his first NASCAR race in 1949 at the Charlotte Speedway. Three years later, he won his first race at the Columbia Speedway. Baker proceeded to have a long 27-year career during which he raced in over 600 races, won two championships and 46 races, and started in the pole position 45 times.
He also finished in the top ten in 372 of the races. At least three of the wins he had were at the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway in 1953, 1960, and 1964. In 1976, Baker called it quits and decided to retire from the sport. But, like many other fellow drivers, he didn’t leave the sport far behind him.
