1. Jeff Gordon, 17
The four-time Cup champion and FOX NASCAR analyst is one of the greatest on the short tracks. Gordon has taken the checkered flag nine times at Martinsville, which is also home to his last Sprint Cup win in October of 2015. He also has five wins at Bristol and two at Richmond. As Gordon will continue to sub for Dale Earnhardt Jr. this weekend at Bristol, he has the potential to add one more to his impressive total.
