I mean, and all of those crown jewels that Dale Jarrett had, plus the championship, I just— I mean, it plays into your theory, which is the victories are so much more important. What do you think about Kevin in at 18? But I want to talk about David Pearson real quick. So did you have him in the top 25? Okay, Pearson had 105 wins, second only to Petty and the only driver other than Petty to surpass 100 wins in the top series, so I could see, possibly, putting Pearson among the three seven-time champs. Yep, you read that correctly — eighth. You should take an Uber home, by the way.
How in the world the 21 of us put Dale Earnhardt, Sr. But he is definitely— he drove my race car a few times. Championships— if you were categorizing championships, he should be way up there. But I think what tips the scale toward Darrell and Cale is the fact that they have those three championships, and Bobby only got the one championship in the Cup Series. So he had a lot more of a runway left I think, Larry, to win championships. And he did it on a consistent basis.
That is how I think Waltrip gets rated better than Allison, Gordon better than Earnhardt. Well I think Davey Allison had done it. And I had him on my list definitely higher than me because I didn't do all the stuff that he did. The era that he was doing this in. So we're going to start to run through the list.
So, this was the toss up, I think, for a lot of people. And there were actually four of our panelists who had him voted eighth so that starts to give you a little insight. Other current drivers on the list included Kurt Busch in 28th, Keselowski 29th, Denny Hamlin 35th, reigning Cup Series champion in 36th and Joey Logano in 50th. Number four, Fox analyst Jeff Gordon, a four time champion. Let's go to the top 25, shall we? Crafton is a two-time Truck Series champion winning titles in 2013 and 2014. Some of these guys like Lee and Ned have tremendous win percentages, but they race in a completely different era.
And I was a fan back then, so I'd watch it as a kid. But I think probably this is about right for Bobby because of only that one championship. And I've raced against all those except for Marvin, but I do know Marvin. It swayed some of my decisions. You know, you know statistically, based on how we came to our conclusion of the top 50. David Pearson, to me, I thought he might have been in contention to be number one. So the Matt Kenseth one doesn't surprise me as much as— like you said— the Dale Jarrett one.
When you look at that group, who jumps out? I definitely had Matt Kenseth a little higher than that. He'll be the highest that we have on our top 50 list that has not won a championship. And like I said in my opening comments, having raced with Matt, you can appreciate what he does. Of course, he did have a Daytona 500. It's just so hard to boil it down to 50 of them. We are going to start to let everyone know at home, and these guys, too, because you guys don't know who is out or who is in the top 50. So not only did he win the championships, he won the race as he did so on the big stage, Casey.
And one of the reasons why is, in addition to all those Cup wins, he's been outstanding in the Xfinity Series. And were on top of that pit box. Well, that's where they would take 12 drivers from all walks of racing, put them in equally matched race cars, and race them four races in the year. Everybody wants to win the Daytona 500, the Brickyards, and the Southern 500s, the Coca-Cola 600s. And he set a template that drivers to this day still follow of how to draft. If you look at his 16 full seasons, not including this year, he won championships seven out of 16. He was doing it when competition was really starting to get stout.
So obviously talented, you know, beyond what we can really comprehend. It speaks to the volume of the numbers put up by the guys at this stage. Something else about this list that has me baffled is the representation of current drivers on this list. And I had him a little higher. That's where he's at on the wins list.
