I Am Darrell Waltrip and I Am Second
About Darrell Waltrip
Here is a mini Bio from the Premiere Speakers Bureau.
- THREE TIME NASCAR WINSTON CUP CHAMPION
- FOX TELEVISION COMMENTATOR
- MEMBER OF THE NASCAR HALL OF FAME
Darrell Waltrip currently appears as a NASCAR on FOX commentator doing what he does best - talk. Joining the Winston Cup circuit in 1972, he earned the nickname “Jaws” despite failing to win until his 50th start. With at least one victory a year from 1975 through 1989, “Ol’ DW” earned the respect of fans with back-to-back NASCAR Winston Cup Series Most Popular Driver Awards in 1989 and 1990. Darrell is one of only seven drivers to win at least three Winston Cup series titles and the only five-time winner of the Coca-Cola 600. In 1998 he was named one of NASCAR’s 50 greatest drivers. Darrell also finds time to talk about his faith and the importance of committing his life to Christ, being one of the most visible witnesses in the sport. Darrell loves to inspire others and has spoken at Billy Graham events and Motor Racing Outreach functions.
I Am Second
I Am Second is a Christian website with a series of monologue videos all filmed against a black background with a white leather chair for the interviewee.
The whole modern, “avante-garde” style sets its approach apart from most Christian sites.
I Am Second means second to Jesus Christ.
The website features a growing number of testimonies by a wide range of well known public figures as well as some lesser known ones.
The site has gone truly viral with many millions of views in over 200 countries.

Darrell Waltrip - I Am Second
It took a time of crisis in Darrell's life when he realized he could have died in a race car crash to make him realize the fragility of life and that he was not in full control of it. Thankfully, he says, he was led in the right direction by a mentoring pastor/friend to the One, Jesus Christ, who radically changed him for now and for all eternity.
