All-time great, no doubt. But i find more annoying than his brother Mikey. DW or "Jaws" drinks the Kyle Busch kool-aid way too much. Oh, BTW draco, DW also won NASCAR most popular driver twice. Forgot that.
He promotes digger (who was created by FOX) like no tommorow. But i really don't mind digger. As long as the kids like him

I still can't stand DW. Never ever liked him. He was an arrogant ass toward Cale Yarbrough and Richard Petty in the 70s, and an asshole in the 80s with Dale Earnhardt, Bill Elliott, and Rusty Wallace. I booed him for many years, and could never come around to liking him. I never watched a race on TV, but with the radio commentary, until Fox hired DW.

His brother is just a moron.

Extremely talented driver who made lots of enemies with fans and competitors alike due to his brash personality. Much like Kyle Busch is today. I believe if he were in his 20's again racing today people would boo him just like they do Kyle and DW would struggle with consistency and championships just like Kyle does today. DW ran in an era where the cars were so far apart and his was one of the better machines.

The Joe Morgan of NASCAR. Underrated as a driver, unbearable as an announcer.
