there is a website that pays homage to of NASCAR drivers who finish last

Ironically, Front Row Joe has finished last the most.

Joe Nemechek — dubbed “Front Row Joe” by former teammate Wally Dallenbach Jr. for his proclivity of putting middling cars near the front of qualifying grids — has finished last 33 times during a Cup Series career that began in 1989.

Finishing last is not exactly an indictment of driver skill. Joe Nemechek also has four Cup Series wins, 10 poles and 62 top 10s.

Between them, Cale Yarborough and Darrell Waltrip have combined for six Cup Series titles. They also have combined for 33 last-place finishes.

The mission of is to fill in these missing pieces one week at a time, especially regarding the least-covered racers in motorsports - the last-place finishers.

Since 2009, has covered the untold "race" for the most last-place finishes in NASCAR history - and, in doing so, continues to chronicle the trials and triumphs of those who race for something more meaningful than victory: survival.
