With Austin Dillon breaking a 132-race winless streak in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series by winning the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte, and his Richard Childress Racing teammate Ryan Newman snapping a 127-race winless streak earlier in the season at Phoenix, it’s time to take a look at the revamped list of which active drivers in the series now have the longest losing streaks.

Kahne last won at Atlanta in 2014. He’s had eight top-five finishes since then, but hasn’t yet been able to get back to Victory Lane.
It’s been a pretty miserable 2017 season so far for Allmendinger, whose only career victory to date came on the road course at Watkins Glen in 2014.

Almirola’s lone Cup win came in the rain-shortened Coke Zero 400 at Daytona in July of 2014 — and now he’s sidelined by a compression back fracture injury suffered during a recent violent wreck at Kansas.

In the best year of his career in 2010, Jamie Mac won the Daytona 500, the Brickyard 400 and the fall Charlotte race. But his last points-race victory was a long time ago at Talladega in the fall of 2013.

In one of the greatest upsets of all time, Bayne won the 2011 Daytona 500 one day after his 20th birthday to become the youngest winner ever of NASCAR’s most prestigious race. It remains his only win to date.

Patrick has yet to win in the Cup Series — and in fact has no top-five finishes in her career to date. The last of her six top-10 finishes came when she finished ninth at Bristol in 2015.
Menard won an emotional race in 2011 at Indianapolis, where his father John had tried unsuccessfully to win the Indy 500 for 30 years. But any hopes that it would jump-start Paul’s Cup career have long since faded, and it remains his lone triumph.
It’s hard to believe that McDowell has been racing in the Cup Series for a decade, but usually in sub-par equipment. The last of his four career top-10 finishes came when he finished 10th in the season finale last year at Homestead. He’s never had a top five.
Cassill is in his eighth Cup season and, like McDowell, has rarely been in a car capable of contending for a win. In fact, he has only one top-five and top-10 finish — a remarkable fourth at Talladega in the fall of 2014.
