KENNY WALLACE ON MEMPHIS MOTORSPORTS PARK...

"I think this weekend is going to show the rest of the NASCAR Busch Series the kind of team we have become this year. We are finally back in the top 10 in Busch Series points and are determined to stay there. We seem to be building some momentum going into the final five races of the 2004 season, which will help us on a weekly basis. We have had such tough luck this year, and it's about time that it turns around and we get the finishes to go along with the runs that we have put together all year.

"I am eager to get on the track this weekend. Our short track program at Bill Davis Racing has really improved as this season has progressed, and I think the car that we are bringing to the track in Memphis will be very competitive. I have the best team in the garage area, and they are determined to finish the season on a positive note. I am going to do my best to get as far in the points as I can."

Kenny Wallace Happenings ...

Wallace will make the 12th stop on the 2004 Race to Bee Safe tour. Wallace will visit Whitehaven High School, in Memphis, Tenn., Thursday, Oct. 21 to talk to the students about the responsibilities that go along with driving a vehicle. This is the second year of the program, which has been well received by both the NASCAR community and the local markets to which Wallace and the program has visited. The program has an added bonus this year: One student will win a $20,000 scholarship by writing an essay about what the program meant to them.

Wallace, along with other Busch Series drivers, will visit St. Jude Children's Hospital Friday, Oct. 22. The drivers will sign autographs, take photographs and spend time with the children that are suffering from life-threatening illnesses.

Get to Know Jack...One-year-old Jack Sable suffers from a chromosome disorder that affects many people in the United States. When Stacker 2® heard about Jack and his condition, it took the family under its wing. For every lap Wallace and the Stacker 2®/YJ Stinger® team completes this year, NVE Pharmaceuticals, the parent company of Stacker 2®, will donate $1 to the Sable family to help pay for Jack's medical costs. So far this season, the Stacker 2®/YJ Stinger® team has raised over $5,350 to help Jack and his family.
