It’s easy to feel down during the doldrums of the NASCAR off-season. That’s why we took some time to formulate some stats about you -- yes, you, Reader -- and compared you to some of stock car racing's greats so you can impress all your friends. Even though you're not a NASCAR driver, maybe you're not so far off -- at least when you consider these technically accurate statistics.
2 of 12
You have the same number of race victories as Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin combined in the past year.
3 of 12
You and Jimmie Johnson combined have won a record seven championships. You're unstoppable!
4 of 12
In the past 365 days, you've had the same number of birthdays as Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Joey Logano. So much in common!
5 of 12
Since 1993, you've won the same number of races as NASCAR's winningest driver, Richard Petty.
6 of 12
You've only won one fewer championship than each of the 2018 Championship 4: Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick, and Kyle Busch.
7 of 12
Xfinity Series regular Ross Chastain raced 34 of 36 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races in 2018 -- but the two of you scored the same number of Cup points! (Just don’t look at the Xfinity Series stats, for which Chastain declared points, won a race, and made the playoffs.)
8 of 12
You didn't win Rookie of the Year in 2018, but that's OK. Neither did Alex Bowman.
9 of 12
Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, and you won 16 of 36 races last year combined. Incredible!
10 of 12
Unlike every single driver in history, you haven't lost a single race in which you've entered. The second any driver starts a race and doesn't immediately win makes their win ratio less than perfect. For you, on the other hand, 0-for-0 is still a perfect ratio, baby!
11 of 12
The Big Three dominated in 2018. Well, you know what's a fact? Unlike the rest of the competition, they never beat you. In fact, you've never lost a single race to Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick, or Kyle Busch.
12 of 12
You're tied with every racing legend in history when it comes to winning all 36 races in a season. No one's done it. Maybe you can be the first! And, if you pulled it off, you'd find yourself in the top 25 on the NASCAR all-time wins list.
