NASCAR Hall of Famer Darrell Waltrip Slideshow

Darrell Waltrip, NASCAR Hall of Famer - Images by Brian Cleary

Congratulations Darrell Waltrip, who enters the NASCAR Hall of Fame today!

As a photographer covering NASCAR from the 1980’s up to the present day, I always looked at DW w\as the prototypical “go-to” guy. Need a good photo to liven up a slow day at the track?: Look for Waltrip. Whether he was playing with his baby daughter in the garage area, enjoying a lollipop on pit road or doing the “Ickey Shuffle” in victory lane, Waltrip could always be counted on to lay the groundwork for a great photo.

A quick search of my NASCAR photo archive gave me plenty of good DW material for this slideshow.

Way to go “Jaws”!
