All-Star Flashback: When Rusty Dumped ‘Jaws’

Since its inception in 1985, the NASCAR All-Star Race has been a time-honored tradition for the NASCAR Cup Series. Split into three races, Wallace and Waltrip were tied with segment wins. Wallace notched the first race with a $20,000 bonus, followed by Waltrip’s 50-lap segment win, also earning $20,000. “I just hope he chokes on that $200,000,” Waltrip said. It was Wallace who was on the receiving end of the fans’ boos. The fans were so mad at me because I spun Darrell Waltrip out,” Wallace recalled. “When I got to the Speedway Club, everybody booed me, which was so horrible,” Wallace said. “I said, ‘Katie, it’s a long story I’ll tell you later,’” Wallace said with a laugh. We were mad as hell at each other for a while there,” Wallace admitted.
