Kenny Wallace Driver Diary: Hometown Blues, Some Great Runs & Some Amazing Fans

We had a really rough time in Chicago. From the time we arrived there, all the way through practice, we’d just bottom out, destroying our car. That was very strange because we’re usually pretty successful at getting the car up off the ground. We just had a tough time there from the get-go. They dropped …

Kenny Wallace Driver Diary: Bad Luck, Better Days & The Bahamas

Milwaukee was just incredibly disappointing. We had such a great racecar. We never qualify very well because we don’t put any effort into it. We’re locked in, sitting 19th in owner points, so we don’t put any effort into qualifying. It costs a lot of money to qualify because you have to put on new …

Beyond the Cockpit: Kenny Wallace on the Fan Car, Big Changes & Using Your Imagination

The NASCAR Nationwide Series has evolved through the years, in every aspect from the series’ vision to the technology and expense needed to be successful.

The trend has turned off many longtime series fans, as well, as they watched their favorite teams and driver fall by the wayside. Now fans have a chance to change that.

Talking NASCAR TV: Grading FOX’s 2009 Season, & What’s Stopping the Scrolls?

I enjoyed them all, though – especially that race to the finish between Jimmie Johnson and Tony Stewart on Sunday. Sunday also marked the 13th and final points race on FOX’s schedule for the season, a milestone that …

Holding a Pretty Wheel: The Things We Forget – A Richmond Revelation, Kevin Grubb & Putting Racing Into Perspective

Every once in a while, something happens that puts things in perspective. Something that reminds you why you’re here in the first place. It’s not necessarily a big event – it can be something as small as a child’s thank you or the smell of spring and fresh cut grass. But it’s a reminder of …
