Top 10 Reasons Michael Waltrip Won’t Retire

He may not be racing full-time, but Michael Waltrip keeps popping up, entering his self-owned No. 15 Toyota for this weekend’s Talladega race.

*10.* Ken Schrader hasn’t, why should Mikey?

*9.* Because he’s in love with himself and can’t stand to hear anything but the sound of his own voice. Oh wait, that’s his brother…

*8.* Because there just aren’t enough wrecks without him.

*7.* In our best Richard Gere voice from _An Officer And A Gentleman_ – I got nowhere else to go!!!

*6.* As long as there are restrictor plates, there’s a place for drivers who can’t use brakes.

*5.* Because his brother Darrell needs someone other than Dale Jr. and Kyle Busch to be biased towards.

*4.* He has to have some reason for NAPA to keep him in their commercials.

*3.* Can’t afford to now that Buffy probably owns half of his half of MWR.

*2.* Like Sammy Hagar, he just can’t drive 55.

*1.* Because as long as restrictor plates are still used, there’s always a chance at Daytona 500 victory #3!
