During the 2006 season, Jarrett had four Top 10 finishes, with a best finish of 4th at Kansas. His best starting position was 2nd and he finished 23rd in points. It was his last year racing for Yates, as he and his sponsor UPS left for Michael Waltrip Racing’s new No. 44 Toyota team. Dale Jarrett fans went kookoo-bananas because their driver went to MWR and a Japanese manufacturer.
