Front Row at ORP to Have Same Look for Second Straight Year

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (July 24, 2010)--For the second-straight season, Rusty Wallace Racing's Steve Wallace (No. 66 5-Hour Energy Toyota Camry) has captured the outside pole for tonight's Kroger 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series event at O'Reilly Raceway Park (ORP).

Wallace's best lap of 22.554 seconds (109.497 MPH) this afternoon barely missed the pole-winning lap of No. 99--Trevor Bayne, who ironically started alongside Wallace in last year's Nationwide Series event at ORP.

Noted Wallace, "Our car quite wasn't as good as we would've liked in practice, but Scott McDougall (crew chief) and our engineers put a whole new setup under our Camry for qualifying and it was a totally different car. Hopefully, we'll be able to translate that into putting the 5-Hour Energy Toyota in Victory Lane tonight. This is a race that we've had circled all year long and we're ready to go."
