The Best NASCAR Drivers for Car Numbers 29 – 20

Posted by chadmusselman on August 25, 2010

The countdown of the best drivers in each car number continues.  This week we look at some pretty good drivers for car numbers 29 to 20.

Car No. 29 – Kevin Harvick
Kevin has 13 wins in the number 29.  I think most NASCAR fans will always remember how he took over the car after Dale Earnhardt and drove to victory in only his third career race.  He’d end up winning one more race in 2001 and finish 9th in the standings.  Kevin has also finished in the top 5 in the standings in 2003, 2006, & 2008.

 

 

 

Car No. 28 – Davey Allison
This car has a ton of history with a lot of very good drivers.  Just look at some of the names that have been in the seat of car 28; Dale Jarrett, Ricky Rudd, Ernie Irvan, Davey Allison, Bobby Allison, Donnie Allison, Buddy Baker, and Cale Yarborough.  Every one of those drivers won at least one race in this car.  Davey Allison drove it the longest though.  It was his ride from 1987 to 1993 when he died in a helicopter accident.  Over that time he won 19 races and finished 3rd and 2nd in points in 1991 and 1992.

Car No. 27 – Rusty Wallace
Rusty drove the number 27 from 1986 to 1990.  Over that span he won 18 races, and took home the championship in 1989.  Some other very good drivers of the number 27 were Benny Parsons, Cale Yarborough, and Tim Richmond.  Benny and Cale each won five races in the care and Tim took home two wins in it.

 

 

Car No. 26 – Ricky Rudd
Ricky only drove the 26 car for two seasons, but he won two races and finished 11th and 8th in the standings.  Other notables that drove 26, Jamie McMurray and Brett Bodine won a combined two races and never finished above 16th in the standings.

 

 

 

 

Car No. 25 – Tim Richmond
Ken Schrader drove this car longer than Tim (9 years vs. 2), but Ken only had 4 wins to Tim’s 9, and Ken’s best points finish was 4th, in 1992, while in 1986 Tim took home 3rd place in the standings, winning 7 races along the way.  Tim died in 1989 of AIDS.

 

 

Car No. 24 – Jeff Gordon
Every NASCAR race for Jeff has been in the 24 car.  82 wins, 4 championships, and over $78 Million in race winnings.  Quite a career.  One interesting note on car 24, another Gordon drove it before Jeff.  Cecil Gordon drove 24 from 1975 to 1983.  His career wasn’t as good though.  Cecil didn’t have a win or top 5 to his credit.

 

 

Car No. 22 – Bobby Allison
From 1983 to 1987 Bobby drove number 22.  In 1983 he won 6 races and the championship.  After that he collected three more victories and finished in the top 10 in points three times.

 

 

Car No. 21 – David Pearson
David drove this car to 20 wins from 1975 to 1979.  He also drove number 21 in 1985 and 1986 without much success.  His best season was 1976 when he won 10 races and finished 9th in the point standings.

 

 

Car No. 20 – Tony Stewart
This was an easy one.  Tony won two championships racing for Joe Gibbs in the Home Depot #20 (2002 & 2005).  He also won 33 races in the 10 years he was with Gibbs Racing.  Tony is always a contender and could win the championship during any season.
