GAFFNEY, S.C. – After competing in the inaugural NASCAR Xfinity Series race on the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Mike Wallace will return to JD Motorsports w/Gary Keller for two more races.
Sticking with the road course theme, Wallace will pilot the No. 0 Chevrolet in the Xfinity Series event at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., on Aug. 8 and in the inaugural Xfinity Series race on the Daytona Int’l Speedway road course on Aug. 15.
Market Scan Information Systems, Unker’s Therapeutic Products and Doggett Residential & Commercial Concrete will serve as associate sponsors on the car. Wallace is still seeking partners for the two races.
“Like I said before, racers are racers and that’s what we’re going to do again,” said Wallace, who will be making his 808th and 809th overall NASCAR starts. “The results at Indy weren’t what we wanted, but the improvements throughout the race left me feeling I still have some laps in me.
“I called Johnny Davis, talked it over with him and we put the deal together to run Road America and Daytona coming up in a few weeks. The Daytona race should be really interesting since there will be zero practice or qualifying on a layout we haven’t raced before. At least we’ll be on an equal level.
“I’d like to thank Rusty West and Market Scan, Pat Pendleton from Unker’s and Doug Doggett from Doggett Concrete for coming on as associate partners. We still have room on the car for more if anyone is interested in racing with us.”
