Ranking the 10 Most Dominant Seasons in Sprint Cup Series History

What makes a season truly dominant at NASCAR's highest level?

Is it scoring far more victories than anybody else in the series?

Is it amassing a huge advantage in the championship standings?

Is it accomplished by simply being consistent enough to post an average finish in the single digits?

The answer, of course, depends on who you ask.

Sometimes a driver can be the most dominant in the series and fail to come home with the championship. For example, the Chase for the Sprint Cup makes it difficult for a driver to be dominant through an entire season and win a title, as somebody else who peaks at the right time could steal the crown in the season's final months. With that in mind, there's only one Chase era season in here (and that was exactly what happened to the driver in question).

Most of the seasons on this list are still years in which these drivers won the championship. But the dominance exhibited over the rest of the field manifests itself in different ways—some even different from the ones posed above.

With that in mind, here are 10 seasons in which nobody had anything for the following drivers.
