Darrell Waltrip ‘Jaws’

Darrell Waltrip was given the nickname ‘Jaws’ by rival Cale Yarborough in an interview after Waltrip caused Yarborough to crash out of a race. Waltrip acknowledged Yarborough by having a inflatable toy shark in his pit at the next race.

During his career, Waltrip lived up to his reputation as a NASCAR villain because he was brash and outspoken, and often rebelled against the status quo.
