WORLD'S FIRST
WINSTON CUP WINNER

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was the world's first Winston Cup winner?

The Winston Cup started out as the Grand National with the first Grand National series being won by Red Byron in 1949.

Not only did Red Byron win the Grand National series that year, he also took home a sporty $5,800.00 in earnings in his Oldsmobile.

In 1972 the Grand National series was changed to the Winston Cup and the point system we all know and love.

Richard Petty won the world's first Winston Cup in 1972 registering 8 wins, 8,701 points, and a monstrous $227,015.00 in earnings driving his Plymouth.

For the 2004 season NASCAR dropped  R.J. Reynolds Tobacco as the sponsor and NEXTEL took over and the first NEXTEL Cup winner was crowned, that being Kurt Busch with 3 wins and $4,200,330.00 in earnings while driving a ford.
