Three-time NASCAR Winston Cup Series champion Darrell Waltrip has found a
ride for next season and beyond. The long-time General Motors man will drive
for a second Ford team fielded by owner Travis Carter beginning in 1999,
informed sources have said.
The deal, which the source said puts Waltrip in the seat of Carter's car
through 2000, will officially be announced on Thursday at the
Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City, the site of the NASCAR Winston Cup
Series Awards Banquet. Carter's second team will be sponsored by Kmart,
which has committed to the team for three years.
