  1. How come Tony Stewart doing the double in ‘99 Coke Cola 600 and Indy 500 didn’t make on the list?

  2. What next?? Top ten biggest poops found in Donald trumps toilet? Watchmojo is running out of ideas

  3. I don’t think Danica Patrick is the most inspirational female racer. Michelle Mutton, Pat Moss and Sabine Schmitz deserve to be role models for women as they have achieved more glory and raced during a time when the ‘gender stereotype’ was more unkind for females.

  4. Not gonna lie, this list has a pretty bad case of “Recency Syndrome” in the first few entries.

    Next to no mention of engineering innovations like the turbine car or Penske’s secret engine in 1994 (which also led to him incredibly not qualifying the next year). No mention of Ralph DePalma leading all but 2 laps let still loosing to mechanical failure. Mario Andretti’s only win (and subsequent bad luck). Louis Meyer first drinking milk in 1936 after winning the race three times (the record at the time). Bill Holland accidentally giving Mauri Rose the victory in 1947. The “British Invasion” arriving at Indy when Jim Clark and Colin Chapman (and Graham Hill) brought their mid-engined cars over the pond to kick some ass. And finally THE SPIN AND WIN by Danny Sullivan in 1985.
