KENNY WALLACE ON TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY....

"I love going to Texas. It is a real fast track that has more than one groove. Last year, the Stacker 2 team came to Texas, got in a wreck and still finished in the top ten! The Stacker 2/YJ Stinger team has struggled on 1.5-mile racetracks such as Texas and Charlotte for the last couple of years, but I think that is going to change with the new engine program that Bill Davis has brought on board. Bill wants this team to succeed and will give us every resource we need to make it happen. I think we have a good chance to get into Victory Lane this weekend in the 'Lone Star State.'"

Kenny Wallace Happenings...

Wallace will be at the Speed Zone in Fort Worth, Texas, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., Thursday, April 1. He will sign autographs and race 12 lucky fans in a heat race on one of the three Speed Zone tracks.

Wallace will visit Southwest High School in Fort Worth, Texas, at 1:45 p.m., Friday, April 2, for the third stop on the 2004 YJ Stinger's "Race to Bee Safe" tour. This program was designed to teach young drivers the responsibilities that go along with driving a vehicle. Wallace, along with a local law enforcement officer, will address the students. The students will have a chance to win a $1,000 scholarship via an essay contest. The scholarship winners from every school in the program's 17 markets will automatically be entered in the national contest, in which one student will win a $20,000 scholarship.

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, 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, Wallace and the Stacker 2/YJ Stinger team have earned $1,107 for the cause. "I intend on completing every lap I can for Jack Sable and the Sable family," Wallace said. "At the end of the year I would like nothing more than to have Jack and his family at our table at the banquet."
