Weatherly was a versatile racer. Not only did he find success in a variety of vehicles — and among a diverse group of team owners — but he also found it on a diverse set of tracks. He won races at short tracks, superspeedways and speedways during his career — and of course, on the dirt tracks that highlighted the schedule during his era.
