Darrell Waltrip never thought he would crash in a race. When he did, it brought him to his knees.
“I could’ve been dead.”
Racing at unprecedented speeds to win was the singular focus of Darrell Waltrip. At the peak of his career, he won two consecutive championships. “I was at the top of my game. We were unbeatable.” And while he may have been the best on the track, NASCAR fans hated his ego and it bothered him.
His story reflects the importance of humility even if you are the best.
