Class of 1959
The recognized â€œkingâ€ of Modified racing, Evans captured nine NASCAR Modified titles in a 13-year span, including eight in a row from 1978-85.
In the first year of the current NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour format in 1985, Evans won 12 races, including a sweep of all four events at Thompson, Conn.
During his career, Evans captured an amazing 26 championships on 11 different tracks in four states. He is believed to have won at least 475 races at 38 different tracks.
Evans ranked No. 1 in the 2003 voting of the â€œNASCAR All-Time Modified Top 10 Drivers,â€ and he was named one of NASCARâ€™s â€œ50 Greatest Driversâ€ in 1998. He perished in a crash at Martinsville, Va. in October 1985 at the age of 44, but left behind a huge legacy of success.
One of his former cars currently is on display along Glory Road in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. So respected was Evans that his No. 61 is the only number retired by NASCAR in any division.
