You know there isn't any way he's catching Petty, right? The King's 200 victories are NASCAR's equivalent to Cy Young winning 511 games. Different era, different circumstances, not nearly the same record.

The first year of NASCAR's "modern era" was 1972. Before that, there were around 50 races a season, and hardly any drivers would run every race, so races like Petty's win at Birmingham on 6/8/68 over 17 other drivers in a 100-mile race count toward his 200 wins, as do Daytona 500 and World 600 qualifiers that occurred in those times. It's like NASCAR's version of the "dead ball"-era, at least as far as the records and their relevance to today's racing goes.

If you start at 1972, this is the NASCAR all-time wins list.

 1 Darrell Waltrip 84
 2 Jeff Gordon     77
 3 Dale Earnhardt  76
 4 Cale Yarborough 69
 5 Richard Petty   60
 6 Bobby Allison   55
   Rusty Wallace   55
 8 David Pearson   45
 9 Bill Elliott    44
10 Mark Martin     35

I am in no way a Jeff Gordon fan but damnit, that was uncalled for by the fans. Appropriately, on Dale Earnhardt day, he wins in similar fashion to the way Sr won many times.

It's been reported by ESPN and Jim Rome/NASCAR radio that only 14 arrest were made in the Beer throwing tirade. The 14 arrests are automatically banned from the speedway which pretty much means they can't buy the tix, but they can get someone else to do the work for them.

Eventually if this keeps on getting out of hand NASCAR will ban bringing in ice chests all together just like every other sport.

Where have all our heroes gone? (sports.yahoo.com) At this rate, can't we just say that ALL athletes are using some type of enhancing drug to better thier performance and get on to something else. We get it, they cheat to win, so what?
