NASCAR is all about family.

Racing families have been big in NASCAR since its start in 1948, and even to this day.  There have been a lot of families involved in NASCAR, but only some can really consider themselves legendary.

While a lot of families on this list had a champion in the family at one point or another, winning a championship alone will not make them legendary.  The familiar names on this list have been selected because of the impact they had on the sport itself. 

Some played a big role in helping NASCAR first get established, and other racing families are still involved in NASCAR today.

Racing is important too, as some families would prove their racing superiority and dominate NASCAR for years.

Still, to be considered legendary, these families needed to help push NASCAR forward and improve the sport as time went on.

Here is a list of the 12 most legendary racing families in NASCAR history.


Note: A lot of stats and general information was taken out of this book.  The Complete History of NASCAR is a great book to check out, especially if you're interested in the sports rich history.
