Who are the best poker players in NASCAR? With the World Series of Poker in full swing, it’s time to break down the drivers and find out who has the skill to go all-in and who’s drawing dead (on the poker table.) Who knows? If some of those bubble drivers don’t make the Chase, they might have a lot more time on their hands to work on their card tricks.
The quiet types
These men would excel at poker. Imagine sitting across the table from Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt Sr. or Bobby Labonte. They would burn a hole through you with their stares and never show you what they have.
Compare Mark Martin and Dale Earnhardt Sr.
Martin has no poker face. He is more likely to pull a quarter from behind my ear than to bluff me out of a royal flush when all he’s holding is the nuts. But Dale Sr. – I would drop my chips at the table and run away … quickly.
These guys couldn’t help but grin at the sight of pocket aces. Immediately you’d know if Elliott Sadler or Dale Jr. was holding a high pair and you would act accordingly. Both Wallace brothers fall into this category as well. Rusty Wallace would not be able to stop telling you how great his hand is and Kenny Wallace wouldn’t be able to stop Twittering about it. Fun drivers and good guys, but I imagine they lose their shirts at the table.
