NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Michael Waltrip says it's a good thing brother Darrell isn't around to defend himself at a charity roast. Otherwise, nobody would go home until the wee hours of the morning until the man nicknamed Jaws had finished responding.

As Michael says of his brother, Darrell sure can talk.

NASCAR President Mike Helton, X Games gold medalist and future Nationwide driver Travis Pastrana, Kyle Petty and comedian Ron White were among those at the Waltrip Brothers' Charity Championship dinner Wednesday night with Darrell the man being roasted in honor of his January induction into the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Darrell was called away on business and missed the silent auction and dinner Wednesday night. He's also missing golf Thursday, benefiting Motor Racing Outreach and Victory Junction Gang Camp.
