In automobile endurance racing, three events have come to form a Triple Crown. They are considered three of the most challenging endurance races over the decades: the 24 Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring, and 24 Hours of Le Mans.[1][2] Hans Herrmann was the first (1970) to win the three races, and Timo Bernhard the most recent (2010).[3] No driver has won the three events in the same year (Ken Miles lost the chance to win all three events when a problem with the Ford team orders for a photo finish made him lose the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans; he died two months later testing the Ford J-car.); Hurley Haywood and Al Holbert have won the three races at least twice each.

Bold on year indicate at which race the driver achieved his Triple Crown.
