MARTINSVILLE, Va. -- Lost amid all the crashing and controversy at North Wilkesboro Speedway last Sunday was an interesting NASCAR Winston Cup Series record:In becoming the seventh winner in as many races this year, Darrell Waltrip helped improve the "varying victor" mark for the sport's modern era, which began in 1972. The 1984 and '86 tours had six-for-six starts in which different competitors got the checkered flag.And Waltrip's win tied the all-time record for disparate drivers visiting Victory Lane at the opening of a season.
