Darrell Wallace, Jr. Puts New Hall of Famer on Pole at Martinsville

Driving a renumbered No. 34 truck this week to honor Danville, Virginia native and recently elected NASCAR Hall of Famer Wendell Scott, Darrell Wallace, Jr. took the pole for the Kroger 200 at Martinsville Speedway with a lap speed of 96.224 mph. Last fall, Wallace became the first African-American driver since Scott to win a NASCAR National Touring series race when he won the fall event at Martinsville.

“It’s Special.  It’s near and dear to my heart to carry down the legacy that Wendell Scott had handed over,” said Wallace after qualifying. “Today is something you get pumped up about…we’re hitting all the right notes so far and our Wendell Scott No. 34 Toyota is ready to go for the race.”

Timothy Peters, point leader Matt Crafton, Cole Custer and Ryan Blaney round out the top on the grid for Saturday’s race.  Gray Gaulding, Johnny Sauter, German Quiroga, Jeb Burton and Tyler Reddick complete the top 10.
