The last time Bobby Labonte won a race

Here are some interesting nuggets since Bobby Labontes last victory in 2003. For a driver I idolized in the late 90’s, I really hope these stats can be erased next weekend at the Coke 600.

The last time Bobby won a race….

-Joey Logano was 13 years old

-Matt Kenseth had just won his first and only Winston Cup

-Jimmie Johnson has zero championships and only 6 wins (this is the one I find most interesting)

-Bobby’s last win was also Winston’s last race with NASCAR

-The Chase did not exist

-Tony Stewart was defending his first Cup title

-Stewart had only 17 wins

-Larry Foyt was racing

-This marked the last time Bobby finished top 10 in the final point standings

-Ironically, this was also the final time for his brother, Terry to finish top 10 in points. 2003 was the year of Terry’s final win as well.

-Jamie McMurray won rookie of the year

-Bill Elliott had just run his final full-time season

  1. nascar seems to have gone down the tubes with labonte.

    i really hope he can win one more sprint cup race in his career yet he's my favorite driver and it kills me to see him race with crappy teams that can't get him a good car
