Quad Cities-based Adrian Carriers Racing announced today the signing a four-race agreement with driver Steve Wallace to compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Wallace, the 26 year-old son of NASCAR Hall of Famer, Rusty Wallace, will take the wheel of the #97 Adrian Carriers / Liz Girl Logistics Chevrolet for the first time this Saturday in the American Ethanol 200 at Iowa Speedway.
The younger Wallace has raced in all three of NASCAR's National Series, including a top-20 finish in his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut at the 2011 Daytona 500. He finished among the top-ten in NASCAR Nationwide Series points from 2009-2011 and won the inaugural ARCA event at Iowa in 2006.
"We are very excited about having an experienced driver like Steve Wallace join the Adrian Racing team. He's a hands on driver, coming in from North Carolina to Quad Cities to install his own seat and help prepare the truck over the 4th of July holiday. That really impressed me," said team owner Gary Adrian.
