Emotional win for Waltrip

Michael Waltrip passed Elliott Sadler heading to the finish line in Friday nights NextEra Energy Resources 250 Camping World Truck Series race at Daytona International Speedway.

[media-credit name=”David Yeazell” align=”alignright” width=”237″][/media-credit]This was Waltrip’s first truck series victory, 10 years to the day after his first Daytona 500 victory and on the anniversary of his former boss’ death, Dale Earnhardt.

It was a very emotional win for Waltrip and had tears in his eyes as he talked about what this win meant.

“I came here to celebrate his life with my black truck and my No. 15 car.  I didn’t come here to celebrate a win.” Waltrip said.

Jennifer Jo Cobb finished sixth and also became the highest finish in the Truck Series for a woman.
