Before he retired in 2000, Darrell Waltrip won 84 races and three championships behind the wheel of a stock car. As one of the most decorated race car drivers in the sport's history, it's clear Waltrip knows a little something about winning. So, when he decided to pass along his winning ways as head coach of the Florida-based Pop Warner Ormond Beach Panthers, the players -- and their parents -- were probably all ears. After all, the Owensboro, Ky.-native was the first to reach $10 million in career earnings within his sport, then went on to become a favored -- and outspoken -- commentator, currently for NASCAR on Fox.
