Well, my man Earnhardt didn't make it to the finals, but it wasn't a complete shock. The final tally was Gordon 10 Earnhardt 9, and I was expecting the vote to be very close. Petty edged out Pearson 11-8, again not a shocker. Very close competition. So here we are at the finals. Who is the best driver of all time. Petty or Gordon.
#1 Richard Petty vs #2 Jeff Gordon
Here is a refresher for the stats used to decide the seeds
Petty - 7 Championships, 6 time runner up for the championship, and 200 wins
Gordon - 4 Championships, 2 time runner up for the championship, and 81 wins.
Using those stats alone, Petty should win, but of course there are other variables that should be taken into account.
