Wallace Inks New Deal For Indy

Wallace will run the Brickyard
Hot off a season-best fourth place finish in the STP 300 at Chicagoland Speedway Sunday, Kenny Wallace has confirmed that he will drive the No. 24 SR2 Motorsports Toyota this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

“SR2 has fielded cars for Benny Gordon this season, and they did a deal with John Wes Townley earlier this year at Talladega,” said Wallace today. “John Wes is my teammate at RAB Racing, so there’s a relationship there. Family Farmers, American Ethanol and the National Corn Growers Association came up with some money a few days ago, and said, `Kenny, we want you in that race at Indianapolis.’ RAB Racing could not field a second car on such short notice, so I started asking around, and eventually got together with the guys at SR2 Motorsports.

“The car will be a Toyota Camry with a brand new Triad motor, and we’ll be locked into the race with enough tires to race competitively on.”

Wallace said the deal was completed before his fourth-place finish yesterday made him eligible for a $100,000 bonus through the Nationwide Dash For Cash program.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, I love Kenny and his excitement for the sport to me seems incredibly sincere and gets me excited as well. I don't always agree with him, but I respect him as a driver and broadcaster as being good for the sport.
