Jarrett captured 32 Cup victories including three Daytona 500 wins, a NASCAR Cup Series Championship in 1999, and seven seasons among the Top-5 in points. Jarrett raced in his final NASCAR Cup Series season in 2007. He made his final appearance behind the wheel in the 2008 NASCAR All-Star Challenge race, and was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2014.
