Wallace, Team Blue Ox Finish Monster Mile in 21st Place
MONROE, N.C. (Tuesday, May 18, 2010) Saturday, Kenny Wallace and the #28 Blue Ox battled through a long, hot day in Dover and finished with yet another top 25.
In front of over 33,000 fans, the green flag dropped at the Monster Mile in Dover with the #28 Blue Ox Chevy in 38th starting position. Dover marked the third primary race on the #28 Chevy with Kenny behind the wheel for Blue Ox Products.
Early on Kenny was able to fight some tight conditions and pick up a couple of positions through the first quarter of the Heluva Good! 200. As with most NNS races, drivers are going to be trading some paint and they dont call it the Monster Mile for nothing. The Monster held true to form as competitors continued to drop by the wayside after getting into trouble on the track.
With only of the race remaining Kenny had the #28 Blue Ox Chevy sitting just outside the top 25 in 26th place with about 40 laps to go. After a few more wrecks, a red flag stop and a couple attempts at a green/white checkered finish, Kenny made one more key pass on the final restart to bring the #28 Blue Ox Chevy home in 21st place.
Today was a good finish for our #28 Blue Ox Team. We could not have continued our strong 2010 efforts without their support and I would like to personally thank them for that, stated driver Kenny Wallace. I hope the Blue Ox Guests from Ballantyne RV, Tom Schaeffers RV and Endless Summer RV all enjoyed themselves.
The JRR #28 Blue Ox Team sits 21st place in Owner Points after Dover and driver Kenny Wallace is in 17th place in the individual driver standings.
