NASCAR's Greatest Modified Driver

The recognized "king" of Modified racing.

Evans captured nine NASCAR Modified titles in a 13-year span, including eight in a row from 1978-1985.

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, C.T.

Evans ranked No. 1 in the 2003 voting of the “NASCAR All-Time Modified Top 10 Drivers,” and he was named one of NASCAR’s “50 Greatest Drivers” in 1998.
