KENNY WALLACE ON RUNNING AT ATLANTA MOTOR SPEEDWAY--

"Atlanta has always been my toughest track, " said Wallace. "It is by far the hardest track I run at. But, I always go there with a positive attitude. I remember back in 1998 or 1999 and I ran in the top 10 all day and went on to finish seventh, so I know we can do it. The year's coming to an end and I really want to finish on a high note for everyone. I'm going this weekend with a positive attitude and we'll see what we can do. It will be interesting to qualify at night. We were supposed to qualify at night last year, but it got rained out so we weren't able to. The wild thing about qualifying at night is that the track has so much more grip then it does during the day, so we will run really fast there. I bet we turn the fastest laps we have ever turned there. It should be fun. I hope we can get a good qualifying spot and have a good run this weekend."

WHAT STACKER 2 CAR WILL THE TEAM RUN THIS WEEKEND--

The #23 Stacker 2 car Kenny Wallace will run this weekend is car #75. It's the same car that Wallace ran at Charlotte.

STACKER 2 HAPPENINGS--

* Kenny will visit Pace Academy in Atlanta Oct. 23rd as part of "YJ Stinger' s Race to Bee Safe" program. The Race to Bee Safe program is designed to teach teenagers the importance of safe driving and good car maintenance. The tour will visit high schools in six markets that host Winston Cup races this fall. Students will sign a promise to practice safe driving. The promise will act as an informal contract between the student and the student's parents. The promises will also be used in a drawing for prizes, including tickets to the Oct. 19th Subway 500 NASCAR Winston Cup Series event at Martinsville Speedway.

"The Race to Bee Safe program is working out really well and I truly feel like it is a successful program," said Wallace. "I think it's real easy for me to relate to kids that are 15 and 16 years old because I have three daughters around the same age. I am real honest with them and give them very truthful answers, and I think that helps make it successful. I think it's a great program and will continue to support it."
