Margaret Waltrip, the mother of Fox Sports analysts and former NASCAR Cup drivers Darrell and Michael Waltrip, died at her home on Wednesday morning, according to information released by the family. She was 90.

"Mom went home to be with Jesus this morning, we had her for 90 wonderful years, we were all there this morning, thanks for your prayers," Darrell Waltrip posted on his Twitter feed.

Michael wrote, "Our family was blessed to be able to be with mom in the past couple of days. We were all able to tell her we love her and she would smile and mouth 'Love you, too.' Knowing we were saying goodbye and Mom knowing we were there by her side made her passing as comfortable as possible."
