Recent first-time winner in the Camping World Truck Series visits Regis Philbin and Co.

On the heels of an exhilarating 2013 season that included becoming the first African-American to win in a NASCAR national series since 1963, Darrell Wallace Jr. joined the cast of FOX Sports 1's show "Crowd Goes Wild."

Wallace explained to the hosts that race car drivers don't need a driver's license to get behind the wheel -- hence how he started his career at age 9 -- while also clueing them into how the Camping World Truck Series works, his goals for 2014 and even mustaches.

Yes, mustaches.

Watch the video below.

Later on in the show, they played a game show called "Driver or Dictator." It's just as strange as it sounds, but offered up a few good laughs.


Earlier in the day, Wallace joked with fellow driver Ryan Blaney about not feeling as bad about losing out on the Sunoco Rookie of the Year award, because recently-crowned six-time Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson didn't win it, either.

Naturally, Blaney was not amused.
