In honor of Movember, we’re taking a look back at some of the best NASCAR mustaches of all time. Named one of NASCAR’s 50 Greatest Drivers in 1998, Ernie Irvan’s ‘stache is in rare company as well.

‘Swervin’ Irvan’ and his soup strainer saw Victory Lane fifteen times in his Sprint Cup career, including the 1991 Daytona 500. His post-race photo with the ’76 Girls’ only confirms the notion that ladies love the lip toupée.

So on this ‘Mustache Monday’, enjoy some more pics of Irvan and his classic cookie duster.
