Waltrip finished 37th, his third race in a row with finishes worse than 33rd. He is currently 38th in points as compared to leading the points this time last season.

1. Daytona - Victim of Rookie incident. Tumbled down backstretch landing on roof - finished 38th.

2. Rockingham - Running eighth when parts failure in rear-end gear occurred - finished 33rd.

3. Las Vegas - Bill Elliott ran into Waltrip sending him into outside wall - finished 37th.

"It may sound redundant," Waltrip explained, "but every race we have run this year I have felt like we had a top-five car. There are many of my peers out there that would love to have the performance out of their cars that I have in my NAPA Chevy. It's not a secret the start of this season has been disappointing, but we've been in the game each week and we'll be back in it next week."
