Date: 7/4/1984
Set By: Richard Petty

Petty's seven career titles are more than anyone currently competing, although that record may fall if Jimmie Johnson continues on his current trajectory. Even if it does, though, you could combine the total number of wins Johnson, Jeff Gordon, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. have and still be 33 short of Petty's. That record isn't going anywhere. To catch Petty, Johnson would have to win at the same rate while racing until after his 63rd birthday; for Gordon, he'd have to keep winning at the same pace until age 66.
