NASCAR Champions Featuring Bobby Isaac

Bobby Isaac possessed the one attribute that all NASCAR drivers crave. He was quite simply; fast. In 1969 he captured the record for most poles in a single season with 19. That record still stands today. In fact, only 38 drivers have achieved 19 or more poles throughout their entire career.

NASCAR Champions Featuring Rex White

Rex White is a perfect example of what it takes to achieve success. He grew up while the country was in the grip of the Great Depression and spent much of his youth working long hours on a farm. He also suffered from polio as a child but none of this deterred him from his dream.

NASCAR Champions Featuring Herb Thomas

“He was as good as they come,” Petty said. “There have been very few guys who had more confidence in what he could do than Herb. He was so strong-minded that he ‘willed’ his wins and what he was doing on the track. He was going to beat the guys on the track no matter what was going on. That was his mind set.”

NASCAR Champions Featuring Richard Petty

With his tall, slender frame, signature feathered cowboy hat and sunglasses; he is easily one of the most recognizable figures in the racing world. His accomplishments on the track will likely never be equaled and a worthy successor may never be found. There has only been one king in NASCAR and that king is Richard Petty.

NASCAR Champions Featuring David Pearson

David Pearson was not only fast in a race car, he was also quick on his feet. NASCAR’s “Silver Fox,” could outrun and outthink most of his competitors on any given day.

NASCAR Champions Featuring ‘Red’ Byron

"In so many ways he was the perfect first champion," Bill France Jr. said of Byron in 1998 when he was named one of NASCAR's 50 Greatest Drivers. "A guy who loved racing so much he refused to give it up. And he loved his country so much he gave it all he had."

NASCAR Champions Featuring Lee Petty

Petty is one of the most recognized names in the history of NASCAR. But Lee Petty didn’t begin competing in NASCAR for fame or fortune. It was a means to an end. On a good day it was a way to put food on the table and pay the bills. His career bore little resemblance to the pampered lifestyle of today’s stock car racing elite.

NASCAR Champions Featuring Buck Baker

“He could do things in a race car I could only dream about,” he said. “Throughout the entire racing world, I don’t know of anybody who would have said he didn’t give 110% from the time they dropped the green flag until the race was over. He was the same way in life, too.”

NASCAR Champions Featuring Benny Parsons

Racer, broadcaster, mentor, friend; you could use any of these words to describe Benjamin “Benny” Parsons. But his most endearing quality was that he was simply one of the most gracious and unpretentious people you could ever hope to meet. That’s a rare commodity in a sport as competitive as NASCAR.

NASCAR Champions Featuring Joe Weatherly

Joe Weatherly had a short but extraordinary career. His exploits off the track were as legendary as his accomplishments on the track.
