#4 Kyle Petty
Imagine your last name being Petty and not being a big success like your dad or grandfather! Unfortunately for Kyle Petty that is the road he was forced to travel throughout his career and while he did end up capturing eight checkered flags in his time, that was absolutely nothing compared to the records of his father and grandfather in the sport of NASCAR.
In all honesty though, Petty did carve out a nice little career for himself in NASCAR, but even that was overshadowed by both his family name and his performance throughout his last couple of years at The Cup level. Losing his son, Adam Petty in a freak accident in 2002 didn’t help things either and while he did come back full time to honor his late son, he never reached the same level of success he had earlier.
