Wallace Keeps the Show Going in Vegas

Steve Wallace gave the NASCAR Nationwide Series fans another Top-10 performance in the desert and kept the 2010 show going for 5-Hour Energy Racing and its new Toyota Camry.

The 22 year-old Nationwide Series dark horse battled a tight race car for most of the 300 miles at Las Vegas Motor Speedway before finishing in tenth place on the 1.5 mile oval. Wallace stated that the car had some big horsepower, but having slight issues in turning the car made it difficult to hold the competition off in the corners.

Wallace’s persistent execution on the track has made him one of only four drivers who head into the Nationwide off-weeks with a top-ten finish. Following Saturday’s race, Wallace climbed one spot—to sixth—in the championship standings. He’s currently a single point behind reigning Nationwide champion and Sprint Cup favorite Kyle Busch.

The Nationwide drivers will enjoy a few weeks off before heading to one of the fans’ favorite tracks, the circus that is Bristol Motor Speedway. Last season when 5-Hour Energy returned to Bristol, the team chalked up an impressive top-10. We’ll see if Wallace can stay alert and avoid what is sure to a rubber burning, brake smoking, metal crushing race day on March 20.
