CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Darrell Waltrip has made a living from running his mouth, with a trash-talking style that helped him become a NASCAR superstar and led to a second career as a television analyst.

Now the three-time champion is headed into NASCAR’s Hall of Fame.

And he’s at a loss for words.

Waltrip says he’s struggled through 10 versions of a prepared speech for Friday night’s induction ceremony. He finally gave up and plans to wing it.

Waltrip is the headliner of the five-member class. He’ll be inducted with Cale Yarborough, crew chief Dale Inman, modified driver Richie Evans and NASCAR pioneer Glenn Wood.

It’s the third class for NASCAR’s Hall, and many believed Waltrip’s polarizing personality caused voters to overlook him last year.
