Jackie Rogers (born May 6, 1943 in Wilmington, North Carolina, USA) is a retired NASCAR Winston Cup Series (now Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series) driver who has led only six out of the 4943 laps that he raced in his entire career.[1] Rogers earned $64,582 ($271,810.91 when adjusted for inflation) and drove for 12,297.6 miles (19,791.1 km) finishing an average of 21st place.[1]

Rogers would benefit greatly from participating in the flat tracks; finishing an average of 16th place throughout his career. However, he would suffer from terrible performances on tri-oval intermediate tracks where a 24th-place finish was usually in the cards.[2]
