29) Ricky Rudd
Rudd is only one of two NASCAR racers to have had more than 900 starts on record, sitting alongside Richard Petty. Rudd never won a Cup Series championship, but did finish second in 1991. Rudd did however achieve 23 wins and nearly 400 top-10 finishes, which is mightily impressive. Having ranked in the top 30 for career laps led, the man was clearly a natural.
28) Carl Edwards
Prior to his retirement in 2016, Edwards was one of the most popular racers in NASCAR history, with fans making note of his notorious backflip off the top of his car being the greatest post-race celebration in history. Being a two-time runner-up for the Cup Series championship, Edwards had a great habit of finishing around the top every time he drove. In 445 races, Edwards finished in the top 10 220 times and had the eighth-best average finish place of any driver since 1970.
