Michael Waltrip Attempting Daytona 500

The sport’s only two-time winner of the Daytona 500 this century, Michael Waltrip will be looking to add to his trophy case once more. The semi-retired driver/owner has found a seat for Daytona Speedweeks, aligning with newly-formed Hillman Racing outside his stable to drive a No. 40 Aaron’s-backed Toyota. The organization, competing in the Truck Series full-time this season with Ward and Jeb Burton will now give another “elder statesman” within the sport a chance while making their Cup debut.

“I appreciate what the folks at Hillman Racing including Joe Falk are putting together,” said Waltrip in a release announcing the move.“Hopefully, my experience at Daytona will help them get out of the gate strong with their new team."

"I've been in this sport a long time, but I've never been so excited to go to Daytona,” added Hillman.“To have two Daytona 500 champions at the start of the season, with Ward Burton in the truck and Michael in the Cup car positions Hillman Racing for a strong debut and a chance to win both races."

Should Waltrip qualify, it will be his 75th career start in the Cup, Nationwide or Truck Series at the speedway – a NASCAR record. The owner of Clint Bowyer, Mark Martin, and Martin Truex, Jr.’s cars, as well as a chassis and engine provider for JTG-Daugherty, Waltrip needed to align with another team to run the race as NASCAR claimed running his self-owned Toyota would violate their four-car limit rule

This is from Frontstretch, this morning. This JAP-ride has no-points; thus, POS will need to qualify it, unless they can purchase some "points", somewhere.

Will it be a "wall-bang" or in "infield-bang"...... this year!

As always, Banger-Buds, you just have to read those comments, after the story.

Such love for POS! LMFAO!

Why do they hate POS so much?

Any story about POS and the comments are always the best part of the story, for Ol' Wall!

Wait-For-It & 10-4!

Ol' Wall is wondering which of his "drinkin' buddies" from the Rusty Rudder or Red Rocks will be his crew chief at Gaytona?

Will is be Ol' Man Baxter? He could always pull a little hair, if Stevie Wallace is running this year.

Could it be my favorite.......Bobby "Rocket-Fuel/10-4" Kennedy?

Could it be my second favorite......David "Rocket-Fuel" Hyder?

LMAO, Banger-Buds!

Will POS make....."JAP-scrap" ....this year at Gaytona? Only time will tell, Banger-Buds.
