Sterling Marlin  

Former Nascar Driver & Two-Time Winner of the Daytona 500

Sterling Burton Marlin is an American former stock car racing driver. He formerly competed in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, winning the Daytona 500 in 1994 and 1995. He is the son of late NASCAR driver Coo Coo Marlin.

Marlin announced his retirement from racing on March 18, 2010. In late 2011, Marlin helped form Tennessee Racing Association, LLC, along with several other drivers (including Chad Chaffin and Mike Alexander) and businessmen, in an effort to preserve Fairgrounds Speedway and allow the track to remain active in the racing community.

In 2012, Marlin publicly revealed that he had been diagnosed with Parkinsonism. He has undergone deep brain stimulation surgical procedures at Vanderbilt University Medical Center as part of his treatment.

Although he is retired from NASCAR competition, Marlin still remains an active driver in the Pro Late Model Division at Fairgrounds Speedway. He currently leads the point standings in that division to go along with his two victories in 2013, driving the No. 40 car.

Marlin is expected to return to compete in Pro Late Model racing once he is cleared by medical professionals.
