GAFFNEY, S.C. (September 18, 2012) – Mike Wallace and the No. 01 Chevrolet team of JD Motorsports w/Gary Keller head to the Bluegrass State looking to keep the good rolling and going at Kentucky Speedway this Saturday for their NASCAR Nationwide Series race.

Wallace, who has two top-five and two top-10 finishes at the 1.5-mile oval, wants to remain successful at the Sparta, Ky. track. His teammate, Danny Efland, is looking to add a good finish of his own to the team’s mix in the No. 4 Tradebank Chevrolet.

With seven races remaining in the 2012 season, Wallace and the Newt Moore-lead team are looking for every point and position they can garner. In their favor is the combined veteran experience the two bring to the track each weekend.

That means extra attention to detail, working harder and not letting up from green to checkers to get those favorable results. And, this weekend at Kentucky is one more race in that direction.

Mike Wallace quotes: “I have had some pretty good runs at Kentucky in the past and it’s always a good feeling when you’re going back to a track with that history on your side. It’s a track where you can’t let up and have to keep your wits about you on every lap, that’s for sure.

“We’ve been pretty steady with our finishes lately, so that helps when you have the confidence with the team like I do with our JD Motorsports crew. We’ve had some goofy things take place which robbed us of some of the finishes we should have had in some of our recent races.

“All we need to do is put a good solid run together, repeat it a few times in the next few races and show what we’re truly capable of doing. The fans at Kentucky get into their NASCAR racing, and we look forward to racing there for them. So, I’m looking for a great weekend.”
