The all-time winningest driver at Bristol is, as Cale Yarborough called him. “Jaws”‘, Darrell Waltrip . Ol DW logged 12 victories at this historic race venue. In fact seven (7) of those 12 victories came in a row. At that time in DW’s career, his (Darrell Waltrip) slogan was “follow me in Tennessee”! A saying that thoroughly annoyed most all of his competitors!
Tied for second on the all-time victory list at Bristol are, Dale Earnhardt, Sr, Rusty Wallace, and Cale Yarborough.
It should come as no surprise that the driver pictured above, “Mr. Four-Time”, Jeff Gordon, would be one of the active drivers that would be part of the answer to the question that I have posed in the article title, regarding victories at Bristol Motor Speedway!
Another driver to be a part of this equation is probably no surprise to the avid NASCAR fan. The driver of the Joe Gibbs Racing M&M’s #18 Camry and the winner of Saturday’s Nationwide race, ol Kylie Busch, would be the driver that is on the tip of everyone’s tongue.
Lastly, one driver that might surprise you would be the older brother of “The Rebellious Outlaw Family” from La Vegas, NV. Even though KuBu’s victories came prior to Bruton Smith’s reconfiguration of Bristol, nevertheless, there was a time when Kurt Busch was a domineering driver at “Thunder Valley”!
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
