Infamous 'Yellow Banana' remembered Junior Johnson is a member of the inaugural NASCAR Hall of Fame class, a driver who won 50 races and an owner who saw his drivers win six NASCAR Sprint Cup championships. And he might be best known for building a car that was blatantly illegal, so completely beyond the spirit of the rules, let alone the letter of the law, that he earned himself a permanent spot alongside Smokey Yunick in the NASCAR scofflaws’ hall of fame.
