Michael Waltrip will once more be racing at Daytona International Speedway.
Hillman Racing and sponsor Aaron's, Inc., will put two-time Daytona 500 champ Waltrip behind the wheel of the No. 40 Toyota in the Feb. 26 NASCAR Sprint Cup season opener.
Waltrip will be attempting to make his 75th start at the track in one of NASCAR's top three national touring series, the most of any driver.
"Aaron's really does make your dreams come true," Waltrip said. "When I was a kid thinking about racing in Daytona I never dreamed I would start more NASCAR races there than anyone. That's amazing."
Waltrip credits several factors for his success at the track.
"You have to have a great sponsor to race and Aaron's has been a great sponsor for a long time," Waltrip said. "I appreciate what the folks at Hillman Racing, including Joe Falk, are putting together. Hopefully my experience at Daytona will help them get out of the gate strong with their new team."
Waltrip will be busy in the coming weeks....
