Jimmy Johnson, by far...
His crew chief was a known cheater.
See what baj said above - Cars are SUPPOSE TO BE just about equal across the board. That means driver's skill comes in to play greatly, yes, but there's just so much random crap that can happen in a 200-300-400-500-600 mile race. Jimmy won WAY MORE than any supposed skill advantage should have given him.
His cars were tweeked, contrary to the rules of the sport, and that's what accounted for his team being consistently faster EVERY WEEK.
No one can convince me otherwise.
You do realize the type of inspections done on the cars pre and post race right?
Every inch of the car is dissected.
And you can bet with his crew chiefs history his cars were looked into even more thoroughly.
Personally I would like to say Dale Sr. but you can't deny what Jimmie accomplished in a ten year period.
