4: Rusty Wallace
The super-popular Wallace started his NASCAR career back in 1980 and has been a mainstay in the sport ever since. Wallace had a close rivalry with Dale Earnhardt Sr. which lasted until Earnhardt’s death, although both drivers had mutual respect for each other. Wallace has managed racing teams as well as kept his name in the sport by commentating and mentoring.
The driver operated Rusty Wallace Racing until 2012m when he moved onto full-time commentating. There aren’t a lot of celebrities that have been able to cultivate the career that Wallace has done for himself. With the determination and fortitude to win you can bet that Wallace will be a part of NASCAR for the foreseeable future.
