DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Michael Waltrip has won at Daytona on the 10-year anniversary of his first victory, the one marred by the death of Dale Earnhardt.
Waltrip passed Elliott Sadler in the final hundred yards of the season-opening Trucks Series race Friday night, then celebrated an emotional victory a decade after his car owner died on the last lap of the Daytona 500.
Waltrip had tears in his eyes as he talked about what the win meant. He also became the 22nd driver to win races in each of NASCAR's top three series.
Waltrip, Sadler, Timothy Peters, Miquel Paludo and Clay Rogers were the only ones who avoided damage in two wild, multi-truck wrecks late.
