24 Aug 5-Hour Energy Racing Gears Up to Break Records
Despite an unlucky finish for 5-Hour Energy Racing at the Food City 250 last Friday in Bristol, Steve Wallace is still on track to top his 2009 season standings.
Wallace began his career with Rusty Wallace Racing in 2005, garnering a mere 118 points to earn an overall rank of 105. However, the youngest son of NASCAR legend and team namesake, Rusty Wallace, quickly climbed the ranks to clinch the seventh position on the leader board in 2009.
Throughout the 2010 season, the 5-Hour Energy car continues to break personal records. Prior to the most recent races at Michigan and Bristol, in which Wallace placed 18th and 30th respectively, Wallace was near the front of the pack. In the Nationwide Series, he boasted an average finish of 7.5 and spent the majority of each race among the top 15 cars.
This August, Wallace captured his fourth-consecutive top 10 finish at the Zippo 200, marking his 11th top 10 of 2010, which already marks a career high. The 66 car also placed 15th or better in 10 straight races.
Currently, even following his last two difficult races, Wallace ranks eighth overall in NASCAR standings, but is in hot pursuit of a top five series finish.
Though 5-Hour Energy Racing might be experiencing a rough patch on the road to clinching personal bests, 11 races still remain in the series. This weekend, Wallace is eager to improve his lagging record and continue his ascent to the top at this weekend’s NAPA Auto Parts 200 presented by Dodge at The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal. In 2009, 5-Hour Energy racing placed 16th at the same race.
