Winless NASCAR Sprint Cup Drivers Most in Need of a Victory
Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports
Some of NASCAR's biggest names have yet to win a race this season, including Jimmie Johnson (left) and Tony Stewart.

Eleven races into the 2014 season, several of the biggest names in NASCAR have yet to win a race in the Sprint Cup Series.

Chief among them is defending champion Jimmie Johnson, who made it clear prior to this season that he and crew chief Chad Knaus were on a mission to secure their seventh Cup title. That, of course, would also secure Johnson's place as one of the greatest drivers in NASCAR history, as it would tie him with Richard Petty and the late Dale Earnhardt for the most championships in a career.

However, Johnson hasn't dwelled on it too much.

"It's been out of mind, for sure," he told's David Caraviello prior to the season. 

But he is far from alone when it comes to the surprisingly long list of notable drivers without a win this season. The list also includes three-time Cup champ Tony Stewart (pictured above, right, with Johnson), plus 2003 champ and 2013 runner-up Matt Kenseth, as well as several others.

This slideshow breaks down which drivers desperately need a win, as the series holds its All-Star Race this Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which is followed by the Coca-Cola 600 at the same track eight days later.
