Darrell Waltrip was born on 5 February 1947 in Owensboro, Kentucky, USA. He is an actor, known for Cars (2006), Logan Lucky (2017) and Cars 3 (2017). He has been married to Stephanie "Stevie" Rader since 15 August 1969. They have two children.
His last race as an owner/driver he drove an all white Chevrolet Monte
Carlo called the 'Tim Flock Special'. He donated the prize money to
racing legend Tim Flock who was sick at the time to help with medical
expenses. Tim's car number in 1955, and 1956 was 300. Darrell wanted to
use this number on the car, but NASCAR rules only allow two digit
numbers on the cars. So he had to take 300 off of the car, and use his
number 17. The next race, he drove for Dale Earnhardt Inc, car number
1, for most of the season until Steve Park recovered from injuries from
a crash at Atlanta. The irony here is Darrell, and Dale never really
got along with each other before this.
