Robert Glenn Johnson, Jr. (born June 28, 1931),
In 1955, Johnson decided to give up delivering moonshine for the more lucrative (and legal) career of being a NASCAR driver.
In 1956, federal tax agents found Johnson working at his father's moonshine still in Wilkes County and arrested him.
In 1958 Johnson returned to the NASCAR scene and picked up where he left off, winning six races.
In 1960 his first win at a "superspeedway" came at the Daytona 500.
He retired in 1966. In his career, he claimed 50 victories as a driver, and 11 of these wins were at major speedway races. He retired as the winningest driver never to have a championship.
In 1991 he was inducted in the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America.
In 1998 he was named one of NASCAR's 50 Greatest Drivers.
In 2010 he was inducted in the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
