A tragic, early death; Bryan Clauson, RIP
We are reeling from the tragic
of NASCAR and IndyCar driver Bryan Clauson.
So, so young! So much talent!
Clauson was racing a midget car on a dirt track when he hit a safety wall. The impact threw him into another car, and he died from the injuries he sustained.
Remember this #crazy #crash?
Did he let #greed overcome #speed back in 1989 when he bumped Waltrip?
The day #Rusty became the #villain.
I don't know about most #fans but I don't turn on my favorite drivers when they do stuff like that. I like to see a clean race but occasionally a little beatin' and bangin' makes for a good #show.
27I am not going to miss racing with some of these idiot 4 next year
Someone's back to their old, crotchety self.
This is why he's my favorite driver. Speaks his mind and doesn't care. I've watched him since I was five years old and am saddened by his retirement.
, first NASCAR driver to win three consecutive titles.
But he is most famous for keeping it real in 1979. No holds barred back then folks.
One of the best fights ever.
One of the greatest drivers before the Pocono crash.
Tragedy and struggles with amnesia
But who can forget the historic 1988 Daytona 500 win over his son, Davey?
The Alabama Gang. RIP Davey, Cliff, and Judy.
Darrell Waltrip won his first
Cup on May 10, 1975, at Nashville driving the number 17 Chevrolet. It was Waltrip's 50th career start in the Cup series. During his career, Waltrip won eight Cup races at Nashville Speedway. Overall, D.W. won 15 races with the number 17. He captured 26 races with the 88, and he won 43 times driving with the number 11. Waltrip drove the number 95 to begin his Cup career.
Spartanburg, SC native
105 racing victories. A humble driver, his tactic was to hold back for 90 percent of the race before charging forward for the win.
The Silver Fox. No driver had such ease in his environment.
With 89 career victories, this semi-retired driver is still making headlines.
4 time NASCAR Cup series champion.
Still active on the circuit, Gordon recently suffered the unusual problem of his seatbelt coming undone during Pocono last week.
