1. Mark Martin

Mark Martin
Described as the best NASCAR driver of all time to never win the Sprint Cup championship, Mark Martin still won a hell of a lot. Martin won 40 races on the Sprint Cup series and was named to 50 NASCAR’s greatest drivers in 1998. As mentioned, Martin never won the Sprint Cup series, but was a runner-up five times. That should be more than enough to capture a spot in the Hall of Fame and is enough to obtain the number one slot on our list.
