11.  Curtis Turner

One of the earliest stars of NASCAR, Curtis Turner had 17 wins in 183 starts on the Grand National Series and another 38 wins in 79 races on the Convertible Series.  Despite once being banned for life from NASCAR for attempting to start a driver’s union, a ban that Bill France Sr. lifted after four years, he seems a lock to get into the Hall as he has been a finalist three times.
