Wallace is a Racing Name

The name Wallace is well known around NASCAR circles and the world of four-wheel racing, with retired racer Russ Wallace as the elder statesman of a group of world class drivers currently competing in the world of racing. Rusty Wallace is currently team owner of Rusty Wallace Racing, an ESPN race analyst, and former Cup Series Champion. His team currently fields two cars in the Nationwide Series; his brother Steve Wallace drives his No. 66 Chevrolet and Brendan Gaughan sits behind the wheel of his No. 62 Chevrolet.

Edwards the Hometown Victor at Gateway

Image details: Missouri-Illinois Dodge Dealers 250 served by picapp.com Even with the Sprint Cup Series taking the week off, it was still a busy weekend for Missouri native, Carl Edwards …. particularly because he decided to commit to a three-day bicycle trip from his hometown of Columbia, MO to the track that lies in Madison, IL - just outside of the St. Louis metro-area. Edwards made the trip and got to the track in time to qualify third for the Missouri-Illinois Dodge Dealers 250 at Gateway International Raceway, and then passed Jason Leffler with 48 laps remaining en route to picking up the win Saturday night.

Big Weekend Ahead for the Wallace Bunch

Image details: Camping World RV Rental 250 served by picapp.com It’s going to be a big weekend coming up for the Wallace’s as the NASCAR Nationwide Series makes a trip to St. Louis this weekend for the Missouri-Illinois Dodge Dealers 250 at Gateway International Raceway, hometown to brothers Mike and Kenny Wallace. Considered to be the home track for the Wallace family, the track has been kind enough to name the grandstands in Turns 1 and 2 after the Wallace’s, and even honored them by placing their name on the race itself during older brother, Rusty’s retirement year. Despite all of the hometown recognition,... [Read more]

Logano Masters Kentucky

Image details: Meijer 300 served by picapp.com In only his third start in the Nationwide Series, 18-year old Joey Logano was nothing but masterful during Saturday’s Meijer 300 at Kentucky Speedway en route to picking up his first career victory in the series.

The victory also gives Joe Gibbs Racing their leading 10th victory on the season. Logano finished... [Read more]

Keselowski Wins First NASCAR Race at Nashville

Brad Keselowski picked up his first win in the Nationwide Series on Saturday night, and the first of the season for JR Motorsports, as he took the lead from points leader, Clint Bowyer, with just five laps remaining and then cruised on his way to victory, winning the Federated Auto Parts 300 at Nashville Superspeedway. Keselowski set the stage for the finish of the race when he stayed out on the track on lap 79 of the 225 lap event as the rest of the leaders made their way down pit road, led by then race leader, Joey Logano. The call from Tony Eury Sr. put Keselowski on a completely different pit sequence than the rest of the... [Read more]

Hamlin finished ahead of the no. 88 JR Motorsports car driven by Brad... [Read more]

Wallace: the Legend Continues

For those NASCAR fans that thought after the retirement of Rusty Wallace two years ago that the sole responsibility of getting the Wallace family name into the headlines of the racing world would fall squarely on the shoulders of young Lauren (Warren?) Wallace, you could be sadly mistaken. No, I’m not talking about the trio that currently occupies the Nationwide Series – Mike, Kenny, and Steve – and, I’m not even referring to the team of Rusty Wallace Inc.  I’m actually making reference to the 20-year-old Chrissy Wallace. For those of you not familiar with the name, Chrissy is the daughter of Mike Wallace, and the niece... [Read more]
