  • 2002
    Age 45
    In October 2002, McLaughlin announced he would run with a new team, Angela's Motorsports in the 2003 season.
    More Details Hide Details The team showed up at that season's Speedweeks, and their Ford Taurus was the fastest in testing. After that, problems began arising, and weeks before the season started, Angela's Motorsports closed its doors. It turned out that the team's owners had been behind in paying their bills, and their debtors took over the operation and shut everything down. McLaughlin appeared to be out of a job, but after word leaked out, fans began donating money to allow McLaughlin to run the Daytona race, and with sponsorship from XM Radio and with Darrell Waltrip's DWStore.com, McLaughlin drove the #39 Jay Robinson Racing Ford at the season-opening event, qualifying 4th but finishing 29th after a wreck in the closing laps. The financial windfall could not get McLaughlin a full-time ride, although he returned to Cicci Racing to run seven races, posting one top-ten finish.
    In 2002, McLaughlin went winless once again, but was able to muster a fourth-place finish in points.

    More Details Hide Details McLaughlin shocked the NASCAR world by winning the NASCAR Subway 300 at Talladega, albeit controversially.
