Nearly a decade ago, Michael Waltrip established a modest family-owned NASCAR Busch Series team in Sherrills Ford (N.C.) called Michael Waltrip Racing. It didn?t take long for Waltrip?s team to develop into a top-notch winning organization.
Today, the four-time NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series and 11-time NASCAR Busch Series winner takes his company to the next level. During Toyota?s NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series inaugural year in 2007, Michael Waltrip Racing plans to enter multiple full-time Toyota entries. Waltrip looks forward to a long lasting relationship between Michael Waltrip Racing and his new manufacturer.
To prepare for the future of Michael Waltrip Racing, Waltrip devised a plan to achieve his goal of becoming a successful owner in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series. Setting the stage in August of 2005, Waltrip announced his plans to design and create Waltrip Racing World, an interactive high-tech race shop designed for the ultimate fan experience encompassing over 11 acres and more than 125,000 square feet of buildings.
Looking back, Waltrip has been a prominent NASCAR Busch Series competitor since 1988. He began his career as a car owner/driver in the series in 1996 making 13 starts that season. Since then, Waltrip has won multiple NASCAR Busch Series events and five NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series races including the prestigious Daytona 500 twice and the sports? All-Star event.
After overseeing a winning NASCAR Busch Series team, Waltrip raised the bar for Michael Waltrip Racing and began fielding cars in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series on a limited basis. With his trial run as a NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series owner, Waltrip commenced laying the groundwork for his Waltrip Racing World project.
