Darlington II: Kenny Wallace preview

"Darlington has such an incredible amount of history, not just for the track, but for NASCAR. The date will change, but I think the Southern 500 tradition will stay the same -- tough racing at a tough racetrack. I'd have liked to see the date...

"Darlington has such an incredible amount of history, not just for the track, but for NASCAR. The date will change, but I think the Southern 500 tradition will stay the same -- tough racing at a tough racetrack. I'd have liked to see the date stay the same, but I understand the need to expand the series too."

WALLACE ON DARLINGTON--

"Darlington Raceway is a track that will challenge any driver. There are a handful of drivers that really know how to manage their tires on the abrasive track and that puts them in position to be there in the end. The track surface has always been abrasive and it doesn't matter how good a tire compound Goodyear brings, the tire wear will be huge and that is what provides great racing. The nickname "Too Tough To Tame" is fitting because you can't tame the track, you have to manage it. You need to continually search for new lines on the track as your tires wear off. We hope our new car will handle well and hopefully I can keep the Stacker 2 Dodge off the wall and get a good finish."

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

The #23 Stacker 2 car Kenny Wallace will run this weekend is car #77. It's a brand new car that hasn't seen a racetrack yet. Bill Davis Racing's Research and Development team took the car to the new wind tunnel facility in Mooresville and all the numbers indicated it was the best car they have in the fleet thus far. The numbers it blew, are the best numbers any car has blown to date.

WHAT STACKER 2 HAS GOING ON THIS WEEKEND--

* Kenny Wallace and Scott Wimmer spent Wednesday and Thursday testing at Kentucky Speedway.

* Wallace will visit the Stacker 2 souvenir hauler on Saturday. Please check with the trackside trailer for the appropriate time of arrival.
