Kenny Wallace Driver Diary: Getting Dirty and The Hometown Nine

It’s been well-documented where I’m at in my career with RAB Racing. It stung really bad not racing at Texas. You know, I had 143 straight Nationwide starts which was the longest current tenure, and I also have the most starts in the history of the series. I’m not going to lie; I was bitter. It hurt like hell. So now I’ve got some new assignments in my life and we’re going to run what Nationwide races we’re going to run. I’m not going to create drama every week. I have six more Nationwide races scheduled this year.

If anybody wants me to drive their Nationwide car, just call me up. I’ll entertain some ideas if somebody wants me to drive their car while I’m not driving for my RAB Racing team. It’s important for me to be competitive.
