Wallace has finished in the top 10 for his three career Nationwide races, all in 2012, and started in the top 10 for two of those events. He led 36 laps in the U.S. Cellular 250 at Iowa in August where he finished seventh.
Wallace’s teammate, Joey Logano, was faster in practice, but will roll off third for the race. After finishing second in the NASCAR K&N Pro East Series race at Dover last night, Wallace Jr. talked with Skirts and Scuffs about his Joe Gibbs Racing team.
“We got Joey, Denny and Kyle, three Cup drivers, as mentors for me and I can go talk to them. Like this weekend I’m racing against Joey in the Nationwide car and definitely need some tips on getting around here (Dover) because we were struggling and he was pretty quick.”
Whatever tips Logano provided worked because his younger teammate starts his No. 20 Freightliner Toyota on the front row.
