  4. Like father, like son! According to NASCAR, “Hunter Waltrip’s Super Trucks Championship this season at Virginia’s Langley Speedway almost seemed destined to happen from the start. The championship, the first of his career, came 20 years after his father, Brian Waltrip, won a Mini-Trucks Series title at Langley – a NASCAR-sanctioned cobblestone oval in Hampton, Virginia. Brian started racing karts when Hunter was young and eventually moved on to trucks. In 2018, Hunter graduated from the NASCAR Technical Institute, located in Mooresville, North Carolina, and was helping his father’s former engine builder, Dean Case. Hunter went to a race and saw the same type of cars his dad used to race when he was younger. “I started talking to some pilots and one of them was like, ‘You’re Brian Waltrip’s son?'” Hunter said. “He said, ‘I have a spare car, I want to put you in it. And that was just huge for me. I didn’t think I would ever be able to drive, ever. It just wasn’t in the cards for me. “And I did it and I finished really well. I started all the way back and finished in the head turn. I knew straight away I wanted to do this. So I told him bought that car and I got two poles that season. The next season Hunter got his first win. That’s when he had the opportunity to buy a truck – just like his dad was racing – and to start working with Case to build the engine.” (NASCAR)
