Re: the "Jeff Gordon has never won this race 500"
I guess that makes me a Gentile.
I can answer the question about Petty. He would have won all 7, maybe more. He was the original cheater in NASCAR, and was way better equipped compared to his competition than Hendrick or Roush is now. But he's a sacred cow, so...
I'm guessing Dale Sr would have been there, too. In a race format, I suspect he'd wreck the other 9 or 11 cars (depending on the format) in 2 or 10 races in order to win.
And Stewart is a world class driver. I think Kenseth is excellent, too.
