Darrell Waltrip's storied Winston Cup Career began in May 1972 at the Talladega Motor Speedway in Alabama. Waltrip rolled onto the track in a 1971 #95 Mercury Cyclone prepared by Holman Moody. Ironically, the chassis of this car was that of the original 1967 Ford Fairlane Mario Andretti drove to victory in the 1967 Daytona 500. The car was owned by Waltrip and sponsored by Terminal Transport of Owensboro, Kentucky. During his racing career, Waltrip drove race cars for Bud Moore Engineering, DiGard Race Team, Junior Johnson, Hendrick Motorsports and for his own team, Darrell Waltrip Racing. Darrell Lee Waltrip born Feburary 5, 1947 in Owensboro, Kentucky, is a 3-time NASCAR Cup Series champion (1981, '82, '85), a 3-time runner up (1979, 1983, 1986), winner of the 1989 Daytona 500 and 5- time winner of the prestigious Coca-Cola 600 (1978, '79, '85, '88, '89). Waltrip has 84 career Cup Series Wins, 271 top five finishes, 390 top 10 finishes, and competed in 809 Cup Series races spanning 29 years (1972-2000). Waltrip is a 2-time winner of NASCAR's Most Popular Driver Award (1989, '90), and was "NASCAR's Driver of the Decade" (1980's).
