ESPN has been running a series this week on their website on the opinion of their panel of drivers and writers as to the best 25 drivers ever. http://sports.espn.go.com/rpm/racing/columns/story?columnist=blount_terry&id=3407489
Overall, it seems pretty well done. I think the NASCAR overload on the panel probably got Earnhardt a little higher than he deserved. I would have put him behind Petty. Pretty hard to argue with AJ and Mario given their successes in multiple series. I suspect that helped Stewart as well.
