Fan Awards: Best Commercial

Michael Waltrip had the kind of year you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy.

But that didn't stop the non-stop pitchman to keep cranking out the television appearances and commercials that have made him famous nearly as much as his racing career.

Waltrip turned in one stellar effort in a spot for his beloved sponsor NAPA, playing off the horrible season he was experiencing and the lack of races he actually made in his No. 55 Toyota.

Waltrip read several letters in a cheery tone, not realizing all were bashing his incompetence as a driver and pointing out the failure of a season he was in the middle of enduring.

Some of the quotes from the commericals included:

"Thanks for asking, but I'm not pitting during my qualifying lap."

"Yes, I do know I have to yank it back into fourth gear."

"Yes, I'm going slower, but you will not believe the fuel mileage I'm getting."

The commericals were humrous and topical and proved that Waltrip - love him or hate him - is still one of NASCAR's best commercial performers.
