Jack Ingram (born December 28, 1936) is a former NASCAR Busch Series race car driver. Nicknamed the "Iron Man",[1] during eight seasons in the Busch Series, he won 31 races and 5 poles, as well as the 1982 and 1985 championships. Unlike most younger competitors, Ingram won his 31 races between the age of 45 and age 50.[1] During most of his time in the series he drove the Skoal Bandit car (1984 to 1991).[2][3] Throughout his Busch Series career he almost always raced in the No. 11 car.[2] During the 1986 season, Ingram was suspended for two races by NASCAR after ramming a driver during a race in Asheville, North Carolina.[4]

After his NBS retirement in 1991, he held the record for the most wins in the Busch Series, until it was broken by Mark Martin in 1997.[5] As of September 9, 2014, he is currently 5th in career wins in the series.[1]

Prior to the inauguration of the Busch Series in 1982 Ingram had won three consecutive Late Model Sportsman Championships in 1972, 1973 and 1974.

In 2007, Ingram was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame.[5]

In 2013, Ingram was nominated into the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and was inducted the following year.[6]
