Tony Stewart is indisputably the greatest driver in the 20-year history of Joe Gibbs Racing. Between 1999 and 2008, "Smoke" won 33 races. He also won two championships, in 2002 and 2005.
It is entirely possible that another driver could take over the top spot from Stewart within the next several years. Hamlin and Busch have each won as many as eight races in a single season, while Stewart never won more than six. Each has the talent to surpass his accomplishments, not to mention Joey Logano, the youngest and possibly most talented driver in the current JGR stable of drivers.
Before any of the three can think of claiming the title of best JGR driver ever, they'll have to start winning championships. And that starts with beating Jimmie Johnson, the five-time defending Sprint Cup champion. The last man to beat Johnson? Tony Stewart.
