Talladega II: Michael Waltrip preview
Oct 28, 2010, 7:36 AM

CORNELIUS, N.C. -- Two-time Daytona 500 winner Michael Waltrip climbs behind the wheel of the No. 55 Aaron's 55th Anniversary Toyota this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway. The 47-year-old driver won on the 2.66-mile restrictor plate track in 2003.

CORNELIUS, N.C. -- Two-time Daytona 500 winner Michael Waltrip climbs behind the wheel of the No. 55 Aaron's 55th Anniversary Toyota this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway. The 47-year-old driver won on the 2.66-mile restrictor plate track in 2003. Waltrip owns four restrictor plate victories in his 25 years of Sprint Cup competition.

Waltrip drove the Aaron's 55th anniversary paint scheme at Talladega in April in a Toyota fielded by Prism Motorsports. He started last but led laps 31-34 before a multi-car crash ended his race. Waltrip also finished 18th in the 2010 Daytona 500.

GOALS: "I'm here to race. This isn't about me just getting back in a car. We know we can win this race. In April we went from the back of the field to the front and led laps before we got taken out of the race. I was really ticked off here in April. I knew we had a car that could win the race. I expect the same this weekend."

SEMI-RETIREMENT: "If the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series raced every weekend at Talladega and Daytona I'd still be driving full-time. That's how much I like those tracks and restrictor plate racing. The only place better than sitting in the stands or watching a restrictor plate race on television is behind the wheel of the Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota."
