A Family Legacy of Racing
Dale Jarrett excelled under NASCAR's brightest spotlights.
Jarrett won the 1999 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship, and recorded six additional top-five championship finishes. He is a three-time Daytona 500 winner and two-time winner of the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. His 32 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victories—21st all time—also include the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
With father Ned, the Jarretts are only the second father-son combination with NASCAR premier series championships after NASCAR Hall of Famers Lee and Richard Petty. Ned Jarrett was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in May 2011. Ned and Dale Jarrett become the third father-son duo selected to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, following Bill France Sr. and Bill France Jr., and Lee and Richard Petty.
