Who is the all-time best driver - Round 5

OK, now here we are at the Final Four. Who will move on, who loses out. I didn't notice it when I set up the groups, but this round pits some old school drivers against each other, and two modern era drivers against each other, guaranteeing that the finals will have a driver from each era. If I was choosing, I think my final 4 would have wound up just like this. I know many people consider David Pearson the best of all time, can he beat The King. And of course from a fan perspective the Gordon/Earnhardt battle should be very interesting. I am a Earnhardt fan, and I am happy to see him still alive, can he make it onto the finals?

Old School

#1 Richard Petty vs. #1 David Pearson

Modern Era

#1 Dale Earnhardt vs. #2 Jeff Gordon

Here is a link to the last round.

Who is the all-time best driver - Round 5

Old School

Modern Era

#1 Dale Earnhardt vs. #2 Jeff Gordon

Here is a link to the last round.

 

I had to go with David even though Richard Petty was my all time favorite.  The Silver Fox won 3 titles driving part time and is still winning races on the Short Tracks in North Carolina.  But when it comes down to a question I asked earlier:  50 years from now who are the folks going to compare those drivers and their accomplishment too? It will Be the "King" Richard Petty.  Richard is/always will be, the standard barrier that drivers will be compared too.  Just like Babe Ruth in Baseball, and Jim Brown in Football. 

That is why I will vote for either of the old school drivers who win as the best.

Petty over Pearson though barely, and I'm writing in DW over Earnhardt  or Gordon. Otherwise I no vote for the Modern Era
