Wallace Ties Nationwide Record for Most Career Starts

Veteran driver Kenny Wallace and the RAB Racing with Brack Maggard team had an exciting weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Driving the No. 09 Thank You Fans!/UHOH Toyota Camry, Wallace scored his 26th Top-20 of the season. After the green flag flew in the Dollar General 300 Miles of Courage, Wallace tied the record for most NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) starts at 519. He will break the record at Texas Motor Speedway in two weeks and earn a lasting spot in NNS history.

The excitement was further intensified because all eyes were on Wallace this weekend as he competed in the final Nationwide Insurance Dash 4 Cash contest. Sporting a blue spoiler and the Nationwide logo atop his windshield, Wallace and other top finishers at Richmond International Raceway were spotlighted throughout the race. The No. 09 was also adorned with the names of thousands of fans who sponsored the car. Many travelled to Charlotte this weekend to support Wallace and RAB Racing and to catch a glimpse of their name on Kenny’s car.

Starting from the 20th position, it didn’t take long before Wallace began powering the Thank You Fans Camry through the field. By Lap 150, Wallace was in 13th position but a missing lugnut forced the team to repit. He ended the night in 16th. Wallace currently sits seventh in the driver point standings while the No. 09 remains in 13th in the NNS car owner standings.
