Sports Executive
    (August 26, 1957- )
    Born in Hazlet, New Jersey
    Retired NASCAR driver/crew chief turned team owner
    Co-owns Gillett Evernham Motorsports, which competes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series
    Won three championships as a crew chief with Jeff Gordon (1995, 1997, 1998)
    Left Gordon to form his own NASCAR team in 1999
    Evernham Motorsports debuted in 2001 with drivers Bill Elliott and Casey Atwood
    Named 'Greatest Crew Chief Of All Time' in 2006
    He left Gordon's team during the 1999 season after his team 'struggled', even though they had won five races that year and were sixth in the championship points standings at the time.
    During his tenure as Gordon's crew chief, he was fined $60,000 for a rules infraction. At the time, it was the largest fine in NASCAR history.
    He released promising driver Casey Atwood after his first year and loaned him to a team that was severely underfunded and uncompetitive.
    He fired driver Jeremy Mayfield in 2006 after Mayfield claimed that his team was struggling because Evernham was not around. Evernham responded by saying that Mayfield had purposely ran poorly to prove his point.
    He fired Mayfield over the internet.
    During the 2006 season, rumors spread that he was involved in a relationship with driver Erin Crocker.
    He denied that statement several times, even though he attended all of her races and let her move into his house, until finally admitting to the affair in 2007.
    He left his wife of 20 years and his son, who had recently been diagnosed with cancer, before pursuing his relationship with Crocker, who was 24 years younger than him.
    After George Gillett purchased most of his team in 2007, the team began running stronger.
    He and Gordon became one of the most dominating driver/crew chief tandems during the 1990's.
    He helped bring Dodge back to NASCAR after a long absence.
    Bill Elliott won his first race in six years after joining Evernham's team.
    He was named Sports Illustrated's 'Person of the Year' for NASCAR in 1999.
    He helped bring back the IROC racing series in 1983.
    He published a list of '20 Points For Success' on his website about how to be successful both in life and business.
