Active win leaders: Who has won the most at each track after Jeff Gordon’s retirement

2 Comments

With the retirement of Jeff Gordon after 23 full-time seasons in Sprint Cup, NASCAR lost a man of many descriptions. One of those was its active all-time wins leader.

The end of Gordon’s career saw him with 93 wins, the last coming at Martinsville Speedway. That win gave him nine at the half-mile track and once again made him the active win leader there for one more month.

But 2016 is the a new year. A year where Jimmie Johnson is the active all-time winner in Sprint Cup with 75 wins (one shy of Dale Earnhardt Sr.’s total of 76) and the leader in wins at Martinsville with eight.

But that’s not the only track Johnson holds the active record for wins at now. Of the 23 tracks the Sprint Cup Series competes each year, Johnson has the most wins at 10 of them.

There were tracks Gordon dominated that Johnson hasn’t come close to performing on the same level at, but there are not many.

The win totals will shift slightly more when Tony Stewart retires following the 2016 season.

Here’s a look at each Cup track, how many points wins Gordon achieved there and who owns the record for most active wins at each after his retirement.
