Salute to Darrell Waltrip
We salute Darrell Waltrip, NASCAR superstar, Franklin, TN, former neighbor, and one smart challenger of the good ol’ boys who recently retired from competitive driving. His insight, skill, and valuing of each person’s word as their bond changed stock car racing in the 1970s. We remember his Late Modified Chevelle in the wooden one car garage in Franklin between races at the Fairgrounds in Nashville. You came a long way from that garage. Keep up the good work. See you down the road and on the web.
