NASCAR NEXTEL CUP SERIES

MICHIGAN INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

Sunday, August 20, 2006 on TNT

STEVE WALLACE, YOUNGEST WINNER IN MIS HISTORY, TO ENTER NASCAR BUSCH SERIES CARFAX 250 IN TITLE SPONSOR’S CAR

BROOKLYN, MI. Many people can recall exactly where they were and what they did for their 18th birthday. NASCAR Busch Series driver Steve Wallace is one of those people, and for his 19th birthday, he likely wouldn’t mind duplicating his last birthday celebration.

Wallace, the son of racing legend Rusty Wallace, will drive the race sponsor’s No. 64 Carfax Dodge at Michigan International Speedway on August 19 in the NASCAR Busch Series Carfax 250.

“I am thrilled to team up with CARFAX,” said team owner Rusty Wallace. “The information CARFAX provides to consumers is among the best in the auto industry and is a true service. I am proud to have them on Steve’s No. 64 in Michigan.”

“Collaborating with RWI Racing is a powerful marketing vehicle. Steve Wallace is a promising young talent and we look forward to a successful partnership in Michigan,” said CARFAX communications director Larry Gamache.

The Carfax 250, which will take place just one day after the junior Wallace’s 19th birthday, will hopefully serve for him as a fine reminder of how he spent the day after his birthday in 2005: by winning the ARCA RE/MAX Series Hantz Group 200 at MIS.

It was nearly all Wallace, all the time last season during his lone MIS start. Wallace started fifth and led 84 of 106 laps to take the Hantz Group 200 by a 0.401 second margin over Mike Guerity. The small margin, however, was not reflective of the bulk of the race; Wallace’s car clearly dominated throughout the event, and Wallace had plenty of help as his father’s NEXTEL Cup crew serviced him in the pits and Rusty and uncle Kenny sat on the pit box to provide professional assistance.

Wallace will also enter the ARCA RE/MAX Series Hantz Group 200 on Friday, August 18 in hopes of defending his crown. David Stremme drove the same No. 61 RWI car that Wallace will enter to victory in June’s Hantz Group 200 at MIS.

As Wallace enters his first Busch Series competition at Michigan, he returns to a track he enjoys.
“Michigan’s a very cool race track to come back to,” said Steve Wallace. “Dad’s got some victories here, and I’ve got a victory here. Whenever you win, it’s a big deal, and especially here, since Michigan’s the home of all the car manufacturers. You get a lot of respect, a lot of attention.”

If Wallace can emerge victorious at MIS over a loaded Carfax 250 field that includes Dale Earnhardt Jr. and series points leader Kevin Harvick among many other NEXTEL Cup stars, the respect and attention will only continue to grow.
