Top five cheaters in NASCAR history

5. Robin Pemberton


A crew chief from 1985 through 2001, Pemberton makes the list for no reason other than the fact that he holds the distinction of being the most monetarily penalized single mechanic in NASCAR history. On the list of NASCAR's top ten biggest fines, Pemberton shows up three different times for a total of $85,000.

4. Ray Evernham

Evernham has only been busted big-time once officially. During his first title run as Jeff Gordon's crew chief in 1995, Ray was fined $60,000 for using "illegal suspension" parts in the 24 car at Charlotte

3. Gary Nelson

Nelson had made his name as an "innovator" with DiGard Racing and Bobby Allison in the early 1980's and later on the payroll of Hendrick Motorsports, working with Geoff Bodine and DW himself. Nelson was a master of the gray area. During Allison's 1983 title run, NASCAR was so sure that Nelson was hiding extra fuel somewhere in Allison's car it was torn apart twice during the season. Nothing was found.

2. Junior Johnson

Big gas cans, using lighter weight metals during engine construction, cars that pushed the outer limits of legal aerodynamics... they all originated in Wilkes County, North Carolina in Johnson's shop. Leaning on knowledge gained from hauling moonshine through the mountains, his cars always seemed to have a few more horses under the hood than the competition.

1. Smokey Yunick

In his three-volume autobiography published shortly after his death in 2001, he even addressed what he believed was cheating and what was not. In the volume dedicated to NASCAR, entitled "All Right You Sons-a-*****es, Let's Have a Race", he estimates that by 1970 over half of the NASCAR rulebook was dedicated solely to him. He is also quick to point this out as one of the great accomplishments of his life.

Dishonorable Mentions

Tony Furr (three fines of $25,000 or more and a four-race suspension)
Glenn Dunnaway (had the first win in NASCAR history taken away for illegal rear springs)
Chad Knaus (three penalties of $25,000 or more, three separate multi-race suspensions)

Re: Top five cheaters in NASCAR history

I sure thought Chad would rank at least near Everham... Dishonorable Mention seems to kind.

Re: Top five cheaters in NASCAR history

It appears obvious to me, although Mr Tanner is making me question my sanity..... that the top cheater in Nascar history hasnt been caught.

...because he was or is, the best.

Re: Top five cheaters in NASCAR history

My "feeling" is that Jack Roush is the biggest cheat in Nascar

Why?.........do you notice how much he complains about other cheaters?
..that aint normal especially when he has been caught himself more than once

I also am thinkin up this theory that maybe his No.1 driver Mark Martin during the 90's who should have one more races was trying to evade post race inspection and thus didnt live up to his potential and win a championship

...the conspiracy theory!!!

We all say that he lacked the killer instinct......I think he was just scared of getting caught
I know that now the top 5 and a random are tested post race, and sometimes more, but post race inspection was not as stringent in the 90's.......does someone have the facts?

disclaimer....... I have just finished a tanker full of beer and am prolly once again talking outta my butt but I always am thinkin this about Mark and Jack

Re: Top five cheaters in NASCAR history

I don't see how Evernham gets caught once and he's higher on the list than Chad.
