Waltrip Cant Stop Running

Full rundowns are expected to be available at www.bostonmarathon.org.
Waltrip's bib number (essentially starting position) was 17,398. There were 17,813 entrants.
Waltrip drives the #7 NationsRent Chevrolet in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series. Apparently on the way to at least a top-10 finish, and while running seventh in the race, he was caught up in another driver's crash just past the midway point of Sunday's DieHard 500 at Talladega, Ala. Veteran observers conclude this is the first time anyone has driven nearly 200 miles per hour on one day and ran 26 miles the next.
