When Darrell Waltrip climbed behind the wheel of his Mercury to compete in his first NASCAR Winston Cup event, little did he know he was beginning a career that would help steer the sport into its modern era. Since that day in Talladega in 1972, Waltrip has captured three Winston Cup championship trophies, registered 84 victories, was twice voted the series’ Most Popular Driver, and was the recipient of nine assorted Driver of the Year awards. He has won the Busch Clash, The Winston, and has been victorious in the Busch Grand National, IROC, USAC, ASA, and ARAC series as well. One of racing’s most influential spokesmen, Waltrip has been a guiding force in the growth of America’s number one spectator sport.
To celebrate Darrell’s 25th Anniversary of NASCAR competition, America Remembers is honored his remarkable career with the Darrell Waltrip Silver Anniversary Tribute. Craftsmen specifically commissioned for this project by America Remembers beautifully embellished the Tribute’s receiver in 24-karat gold and nickel, while highlighting the handsome walnut stocks with intricate laser carvings.
The Tribute’s rich walnut stocks have been highly polished and delicately laser-carved. The shoulder stock features the official logo of Ol’ D.W.’s 25th Anniversary, while the forearm is decorated with the title “Darrell Waltrip Silver Anniversary Tour.”
Right side shows a pit stop in progress, being watched by Darrell’s wife, Stevie. Darrell is shown in Victory lane with his arms raised as he celebrates a win. Elegant scrollwork frames the entire scene on both sides of the receiver.
Left side of the receiver features detailed portraits of Darrell along with his race car from 1972, his first year on the tour, and a more recent version of Darrell and his car. The scene is accentuated by his highflying number 17 and his name dividing the two portraits.
