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. This situation could be changing next season due to General Motors having no choice but to cut their support for... [Read more]

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. The win... [Read more]

One More Down For Stewart

Image details: Diamond Hill Plywood 200 served by picapp.com Tony Stewart came into the 2008 season with only four tracks on the Sprint Cup Series schedule that he’d never won either a Cup race or a Nationwide race at in his career, but he won the Nationwide Series races at Fontana and Talladega, and now he can go ahead and mark Darlington off his list as well. Stewart started Friday night’s Diamond Hill Plywood 200 from the second row, but finished 0.815 seconds ahead of the series points leader, Clint Bowyer, to secure his fourth checkered flag in the six events he’s competed in the series this year. Stewart... [Read more]

the Big Ten: Potential Stars in the Waiting

This week, I’ve decided to compile a list of the top-ten future potential stars in NASCAR. The basis for this list isn’t based purely on driving skill, but also on other aspects that can contribute to their future success such as their organization, or even gender. 10. Justin Allgaier - 21 years-old, currently driving in his third full season in the ARCA/REMAXX Series. Has compiled one victory in each of the past three seasons. 9. Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. - 20 years-old, has recorded 2 wins and 4 top-five’s through his first 20 races in the USAC Series. 8. Brad Keselowski - 24 years-old, currently driving in the... [Read more]

Hamlin One Step Closer to Hometown Dominance

Denny Hamlin won Friday night’s Lipton Tea 250 in the Nationwide Series by passing Kevin Harvick on lap 242 of the 253 lap race, and then held off the former Nationwide Series champ in a green-white-checkered finish. Hamlin’s lead prior to the lap 247 caution had opened up to more than two seconds, but he finished just 0.790 seconds ahead of Harvick after the two-lap dash to the finish. The win makes Hamlin nearly perfect at his native tracks this year in Virginia. Denny won his first race of the season in April by winning the race in Martinsville, he won Friday’s Nationwide race in Richmond, and he will start Saturday night’s... [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]

Nationwide Series Results: Daytona

In a potential prelude to tomorrow’s Sprint Cup Series’ running of the Daytona 500, Tony Stewart was able to find victory lane for Joe Gibbs Racing in a wild race at the Camping World 300 at Daytona International Raceway, giving Toyota its third NASCAR victory in the last two days. After Brad Keselowski brought out a late-race caution by spinning and collecting several other cars, including Steve Wallace, Kasey Kahne, Kevin Harvick, Jason Keller, and others, racing resumed with only six laps to go. The Gibbs cars of Stewart and Kyle Busch were able to outrun Dale Earnhardt Jr, Brian Vickers, and Matt Kenseth, with Stewart... [Read more]
