FORT WORTH, Texas – Mike Wallace began the run to the end of the Nationwide season Saturday with a 25th-place finish in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway.
“It’s one of the longest, toughest races of the year, so you have to pick and choose your spots,” Wallace said. “We had a pretty good car, but everybody else was having a good day, too, so we just had to hang in there.”
Wallace stayed 17th in Nationwide driver points, and team owner Johnny Davis moved up one spot in owner points to 24th.
With the Texas race in the rear-view mirror, only two stops – Phoenix and Homestead, Fla. – remain on the Nationwide schedule.
Brad Keselowski won the O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge. Austin Dillon leads Sam Hornish Jr. by six points in the driver championship race.
