Flashback back to the 2000s……Michael Waltrip….Dale Earnhardt Incorporated….Tony Eury Jr…..Steve Hmiel…..Domination on the plate tracks…..2 Daytona 500 victories. Now flashback to the present day. Michael Waltrip driving, Steve Hmiel being involved in the competition department, Tony Eury Jr. crew cheifing.
“It’s going to be basically a reunion of when we won a few of these things,” Michael Waltrip commented.
While his team focuses on preparing three cars for the Daytona 500, Michael Waltrip will be driving the No. 30 for Swan Racing, a team owned by Brandon Davis.
“We’re looking forward to Daytona,” Waltrip said. “It’s my favorite time of the year every year, to come down here and get to participate in the greatest race in the world, in my opinion. To have won it before just makes coming back that much more special.”
The effort will be crew chiefed by Tony Eury Jr., who worked with Waltrip back in 2005 for a season at DEI. Once past Daytona, David Stremme will be behind the wheel of the car.
