During that period, Pearson entered 574 races and won 105 of them, second all-time only to Richard Petty’s 200 victories. Pearson finished in the top 10 on 366 occasions, a 63.8 percentage. He started 113 races from the pole and claimed three NASCAR Cup championships (1966, 1968 and 1969), even though most years he did not run the full Cup schedule.
