DW to race till year 2000

I was listening to MRN radio and Darrell Waltrip said he wanted to race
till the year 2000 and have that year as his farewell tour.  Also, since
Western Auto dropped sponsorship, if he can find a sponsor that will
support a two car operation he will drive full time next year and not a
limited schedule.  

Also in typical DW slapshot humor, he said the number to call if you
wanted to sponsor his operation next year was 911.

Kentucky newspapers carried an Associated Press story by Joe
Macenka this morning that quoted Darrell as saying this is the
first time in many years he's had to go searching for sponsors. He
credits his near-comeback to hiring Waddell Wilson who is
helping them do things "smarter."  The article concludes
by quoting Darrell: "Nobody has a greater passion
for this sport and winning.....than I do.  I just wish that
I was about 30 years old."
