Let’s say, with Hendrick money. 3 car NASCAR team of drivers, in their prime, from any era… who would it be… and what is your reasoning?

Mario Andretti- to me, unquestionably the best race car driver ever, in any and all type of cars. He won in them all.

Mark Martin- smooth and intelligent, always seems to be around at the end unless the car broke or someone wrecked him. Some detractors may say that he never won a championship at the highest level, but his multiple ASA and IROC titles weigh over that to me.

Niki Lauda- very intelligent driver who knew what was needed to be done to make a car better. Knew how to win championships regardless of who he drove for. Definitely knew how to win.


Kyle Larson was another runner for the 3rd car. Knows how to drive any type of car and win in it. Same with AJ Foyt and Tony Stewart. That 3rd car was a tough call for me.

Please chime in…

For now....I will lead off with:..

Parnelli Jones...

He was a standout in Midgets and sprints, as well as Indy cars He was also standout in the Trans Series driving for Bud Moore. Not sure of his USAC Stock Car Series back in the day, but given his talent and the right car owner, he cold have rivaled A. J. Foyt in NASCAR.

Add:

Fred Lorenzen
Lee Roy Yarbrough
Bobby Isaac
Steve Kinser
Sammy Swindell

The #27 Miller Lite Chevy would be driven by Rusty Wallace because of his knowledge of setups and the fact that he never backed down even from Earnhardt.

The #51 Rowdy Energy Chevy would be driven by Kyle Busch because of his sheer raw talent.

The #25 Red Baron Pizza Chevy would be driven by Ken Schrader because seriously, what COULDN'T that dude win races in?

A good list, though I'd add :
Ray Elder
Jim Insolo
Bill Sedgwick
Mike Chase
Rick Carelli ( before his accident )
