Cup Series is NASCAR's top level back to 1948. The Busch Series was formed in the 80s and the Truck Series in the 90s. So yes, it goes back to 1948 but does not count Busch or Truck wins. What a time to be alive.

If who's "active" on the sportsreference page is correct, I counted 20. That may include wins at other levels though, so that's at most.
Yeah, I think 20 is right with that qualifier on other levels.
