NASCAR 167 63 Drivers with three or more racing titles 30385199 Triple threats Triple+threats NASCAR

Racing in all its forms is competitive, especially when it comes to winning championships.

Some, though, just seem to have a knack for garnering those. Some, it seems, get on a roll and reel off a slate of titles during their racing careers.

With Tony Stewart reaching the new mark with his historic 2011 Sprint Cup title, one wonders just where it ranks him in racing history.

With that in mind, here's a look at champions who have snagged at least three titles (such as Richard Petty, pictured) in several major forms of racing.
