Michael Waltrip Drives the ROLL TIDE Car to 4th at Talladega

Hates NASCAR, buys helmet- bammer

Thanks to a late wreck and some awesome drafting partners, Michael Waltrip moved from 13th on the final two laps to finish 4th on Sunday at the Aaron's 499 at the Talladega Superspeedway.

He was driving a Toyota Camry (yeah, I know) adorned in Crimson Tide decor. It was Waltrip's best finish in a full Sprint Cup Race since 2008. Coincidence? I think not. (Gump On!)

Notice the years of all the National Championships around the ring of Waltrip's helmet. aaronssports.com

I know it is just coincidence but it is pretty cool that Waltrip is #55.

Former Atlanta Braves great Chipper Jones served as Grand Marshal. AJ McCarron served as the honorary pace car driver to start the race.
