The Best NASCAR Drivers for Car Numbers 49 – 30

Posted by chadmusselman on August 18, 2010

This week we take a look at the best drivers in car numbers 49 down to 30, including two of NASCAR’s greatest drivers.

Car No. 48 – Jimmie Johnson
This is one of the biggest no-brainers out there.  Jimmie has 52 career wins and has won the championship each of the last four seasons.  Since he’s been a full-time driver he’s never finished worse than 5th in the points chase.  He’s one of the best ever.

 

 

Car No. 47 – Ron Bouchard
Ron drove this car from 1981 to 1985 and won one race in 1981.  In 1982 he didn’t win a race, but managed to finish 8th in the point standings.

 

 

 

Car No. 44 – Terry Labonte
No one else has a win in car number 44.  Terry  has 6 wins in the car when he had the ride from 1979 – 1986.  From 1980 to 1985 he was always in the top ten in points, and in 1984 he had two wins and took home the championship.  He also ran a few races in the 44 in 2005.

 

 

Car No. 43 – Richard Petty
Obviously the biggest no brainer in the history of the sport.  No one is identified to a number as much as “The King”.  Car 43 will always be his.  He had 36 wins in the 43 car spanning from 1975 to 1984.  In that time he also won two championships (1975 & 1979).  He was amazing and is still the greatest NASCAR driver ever.

 

 

 

 

Car No. 42 – Kyle Petty
It’s impossible for someone to live up to Richard Petty’s standards, but Kyle had a solid NASCAR career.  While in the 42 car from 1979 to 1996 he had 6 wins and was top five in the point standings in 1992 & 1993.

 

 

Car No. 40 – Sterling Marlin
Sterling had this ride for 8 seasons and really made a name for himself.  In 2001 & 2002 he won two races and finished a career high 3rd in the point standings in 2001.  It was easily his best season in NASCAR and made him a fairly well-known driver.

 

 

Car No. 39 – Ryan Newman
Only nine drivers have been in car number 39, and Ryan is easily the best one.  Last season he finished 9th in points and so far this season he got his first win in the car.

 

 

 

Car No. 38 – Elliott Sadler
Elliott has two career wins in car 38, and in 2004 he had a dream season, making the chase, and finishing 9th in the standings.  Since then things have been a bit disappointing for him.

 

 

 

 

Car No. 33 – Harry Gant
Harry drove the 33 car from 1982 through 1994 and collected 18 wins along the way.  Early in his career, from 1982 – 1985, he finished no worse than 7th in the point standings and was second in 1984.  In 1991 he had a resurgence and won a career high five races and finished 4th in the point standings.

 

 

Car No. 32 – Ricky Craven
In the four years Ricky had this ride he didn’t do particularly well with 15th place being his best finish in the point standings, but he did manage to win two races along the way.  One in 2001 & 2003.

 

 

Car No. 31 – Jeff Burton
Jeff is our first repeat winner on the list (car 99 also).  He moved to the 31 in 2005 and is running will in it still today.  He only has 4 wins in it, but is always a threat to do well and contend for the title as he’s finished in the top ten in points in 3 of the last 4 seasons.
