Biography:

With four other family members having been racers as well, it would be fair to call racing a family business for the Jarrett’s. The most successful and well known of the bunch is none other than professional driver and sports speaker Dale Jarrett. Upon his completion of high school, Jarrett began racing at his father’s racetrack. He swiftly moved up to the Busch Series of NASCAR (now the nationwide series) which put him in the fast track for success. In his time racing in the Busch Series, he won 11 races and finished in the top 10 173 times! His first win came in 1986 at the Orange County Speedway, which was quickly followed by another win at Hickory Motor Speedway.  In 1987, Jarrett moved up to the top-tier of NASCAR competition and came in a close second to Davey Allison for Rookie of the Year honors. He consistently placed in the top ten, but his first Winston cup win would not come until 1991 at the Michigan International Speedway. In ’92, Jarrett joined the Joe Gibbs Racing team, which he would leave after two seasons. In 1993, Jarrett won the Daytona 500 where he passed Dale Earnhardt in the last lap, in what became known as “the Dale and Dale show”. The next season he won the Mello Yellow 500 before leaving Gibbs Racing. In ’96 Jarrett won the Daytona 500 again, along with the Coca-Cola 600 and the Brickyard 400. After winning at the brickyard, Jarrett kissed the bricks, a tradition that has been kept at every single NASCAR race at the track since. His next season was his career best, winning seven races. He would go on to win many more races including Daytona again and the Talladega 500. Over is career he has won 42 races and made it in the top 10 433 times! In 1998 he was named one of the 50 best NASCAR drivers of all time. In 2002, Jarrett started the Dale Jarett foundation to help support children in need. In 2014 Jarrett was inducted into the NASCAR hall of fame. Currently Jarrett is the lead NASCAR analysis and commentator for ESPN.
