UPS Racing - Team + Car - Dale Jarrett (1058 words)
Jarrett's father, Ned, was in the television booth calling his son to the finish line in a close battle with legendary driver Dale Earnhardt.
Jarrett and the #88 team added three more wins in 1996, including the prestigious Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, to close the year with 17 top-five and 21 top-10 finishes, a then career-best third in the point standings and establishing themselves as a championship threat for years to come.
Jarrett became, and remains to this day, only the second driver in NASCAR history to score a second win in the Brickyard 400, and is one of only two drivers that currently compete in the series to boast the title of three-time Daytona 500 winner.

It is Jarrett's reputation on and off the track that led fellow competitor and friend Michael Waltrip to offer the Hickory, N.C., native a new challenge in the form of the opportunity to drive for Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR) in 2007 as part of Toyota's inaugural season in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series.
Jarrett is certainly no stranger to "upstart" teams and organizations as he was the driver with which legendary football coach Joe Gibbs elected to start his own NASCAR team - Joe Gibbs Racing - in 1992.
Four years later, Jarrett was once again charged with the task of driving for a newly formed team when Robert Yates elected to expand his organization in 1996 and selected Jarrett to be the driver of the new #88 RYR team.
