3: Terry Labonte
Labonte is another star driver whose NASCAR career stretches way back. Initially racing for his father, Labonte won the coveted NASCAR Winston Cup Rookie of the Year. Labonte won this award alongside other greats from his generation such as Dale Earnhardt and Harry Gant. His racing style was calm and collected, which lead him to become a NASCAR advisor in his later years.
Nowadays Labonte shares his expertise with various racing teams, most notably Petty Racing. The famed driver was also inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame Class of 2015, a prestigious honor that was bestowed on him at a young age (still in his sixties). NASCAR racing has changed a lot over the years and Terry Labonte will remain a part of it.
