Family was the prevailing theme as NASCAR inducted its third, and most diverse, class into the Hall of Fame.
Darrell Waltrip was nicknamed "Jaws" as a driver for his outrageous trash-talking. His loquaciousness launched his second career, as one of NASCAR's most recognized _ and outspoken _ television analysts.
The wait is over for Cale Yarborough and Darrell Waltrip. The championship-winning drivers with a bumpy personal connection are headed to the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
It was foolish for Darrell Waltrip to participate in the live broadcast of last year's NASCAR Hall of Fame voting day, when he was publicly humiliated by being snubbed from the five-member second class.
"It tells me what went on and gives you a sense of racing back then," he said. "They can take you back to when you were there and bring you some good memories."
