21 Sep 5-Hour Energy Car is Making Its Way to the Head of the Pack
The pace of the NASCAR Virginia 529 College Savings 250 race may have been a touch over 98 mph, but the 5-Hour Energy car is building momentum at light speed.
Steve Wallace showed significant gains on the Richmond track, leaving 27 other drivers in the dust. Though run of bad luck left Wallace starting in the 25th position on September 10th, after several gains during the 2-hour race, he maneuvered into 16th place to finish out the day.
The 28th race in the Nationwide Series is slated for 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 25 at the Dover International Speedway. Last year at the Dover 200, Wallace crossed the finish in 12th place. However, if he continues to gain in the ranks as history predicts, it’s not unlikely he’ll place in the top ten at Dover.
His father and namesake of his racing team, Rusty Wallace, has conquered the Monster Mile three times and earned the fasted qualifying time at 5 races during his career. The 5-Hour Energy racing teams is hopeful that his son’s #66 car follows in Rusty Wallace’s racetracks.
