NNS: Kenny Wallace Returns to Action This Weekend


CONCORD, N.C. – RAB Racing announced Wednesday that Kenny Wallace will drive a second entry for the team this weekend at the Iowa Speedway.

Wallace will have sponsorship backing from U.S. Cellular on his No. 29 Toyota ride. U.S. Cellular will also be serving as the race title sponsor for the sixth-season. The cell phone company has been one of the longest and most loyal sponsors of Iowa Speedway since being completed.

“U.S. Cellular is excited about our sponsorship of this NASCAR Nationwide Series race and to have Kenny Wallace back behind the wheel of his Toyota Camry,” said Erryn Andersen, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Iowa and Nebraska. “We have enjoyed being partners with Iowa Speedway since the track opened in 2006, and we look forward to another enthusiastic crowd and great display of racing for the U.S. Cellular 250.”

Saturday will be the first start for Wallace in the NASCAR Nationwide Series since last year at the Chicagoland Speedway. Out of six career starts at the 0.875-mile oval, he has driven to three top-10 finishes, but still looks for his first top-five. The best finish he has gotten there was a sixth-place finish in the spring of 2011.

“It will be a pleasure to once again have U.S. Cellular sponsoring my car, and I look forward to having a successful race,” said Wallace. “It’s always fun to visit with auto racing fans in Iowa and the great associates at U.S. Cellular leading up to the race.”

Last September, the 49-year-old driver made his 900th career start in NASCAR. Incredibly, Wallace has 344 Sprint Cup, 543 Nationwide and 13 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts. The name Wallace is currently one of the most well-known NASCAR and dirt track racing families around the country.
