Michael Waltrip gets Talladega ride

Michael Waltrip will enter the Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway with help from a longtime sponsor.

Aaron's Inc. will sponsor the No. 55 for Waltrip to enter in the April race. The car will be fielded by PRISM Motorsports.

Waltrip put aside his driving following the season-opening Daytona 500 to concentrate on running Michael Waltrip Racing.

He said at the time he'd like to still race in a few restrictor-plate events. All four of Waltrip's career wins came at Talladega or Daytona.
