Some wins are just more special than others. As a result, they tend to generate more jubilant victory celebrations. It might be a driver’s first win in a long time, the first time he has won at a particular track or just that he thought he deserved to win more than anyone else out there. Whatever the reason, when one of those special wins comes along, he lets everyone know how he feels. Check out a list of eight great victory celebrations below.

7. Stewart climbs the fence, kisses bricks and Miss Sprint Cup 2007
Although this was his second Brickyard win, Stewart still lived it up for the hometown crowd.
6. Richard Petty wins 200th race at 1984 Firecracker 400
YouTube is a wonderful thing. You can find anything, as long as it’s not exactly what you’re looking for. I spent hours searching for a clip of Darrell Waltrip’s 1989 Daytona 500 post-race interview and came up with next to nothing. So, I’m quoting it from memory:
"I won the Daytona 500. I WON THE DAYTONA 500! Wait, wait, wait… this is the Daytona 500 isn’t it? Don’t tell me it isn’t! Thank God!"
At some point in the celebration he did the Ickey Shuffle and punctuated it by bouncing his helmet off the ground. YouTubers – upload this clip!
