"I love racing Dover, but it has been a place that hasn't been very good to me over the years. We seem to have good runs going and something bad happens that is out of our control, like someone wrecks us or we break something and our day is over...
"I love racing Dover, but it has been a place that hasn't been very good to
me over the years. We seem to have good runs going and something bad
happens that is out of our control, like someone wrecks us or we break
something and our day is over and the chance to run well is over too. Maybe
we can break that chain this week."
Kenny Wallace, driver of the No. 23 Stacker 2 Dodge
WALLACE AND WIMMER WILL CARRY A SPECIAL DECAL TO PAY TRIBUTE TO FALLEN HEROES OF STATION #23--
The Station #23 program was developed to pay tribute to the fallen firefighters of Station 23 FDNY (Midtown Manhattan), who were performing their jobs of saving lives when tragedy struck on September 11, 2001. The name of their station is "The Lion's Den." Through the common grief following September 11th, a special bond was created between Station 23 FDNY and Station 23, Grand Terrace (San Bernardino County FD) in Grand Terrace, California. The two have become "sister stations" and Station 23, Grand Terrace, has since adopted the name "The Lion's Den" in honor of the fallen firefighters. "The Lion's Den" decal being placed on the #23 Stacker 2 Busch and Cup cars feature both "sister stations" and will be included on the team cars throughout the month of September.
