Mike Wallace and JD Motorsports are Literally Tuning Up for Music City Race
Mike Wallace and his No. 01 Chevrolet are getting tuned up, and dialed in, for this weekend’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Nashville Superspeedway.
Because of some recent chassis issues causing a continuous tight condition during races, they were able to secure some time on a Seven Post testing machine this week; courtesy of their manufacture Chevrolet. This will allow them to see what types of changes they need to make on the No. 01 Impala to improve their on-track performance.
The 1.33-mile oval of Nashville has 24 degrees of banking in the turns and forces drivers and crew chiefs to rely on their front end set up more than other tracks on the circuit. So, the time spent tuning and dialing in this week could lend to sweet success in Music City on Saturday night.
Only way to find out is to turn on the light and let ‘em go.
Mike Wallace Quotes: “The opportunity to get our car on a Seven Post testing machine is huge for this JD Motorsports team. We can’t thank GM and Chevrolet enough for granting us this opportunity. By lunchtime we had found out some things we didn’t even realize, and also confirmed some things we kind of thought we knew. We’re happy.”
“As far as racing at Nashville Superspeedway, I have to say the fans that show up there are incredible. This is a night race and everyone seems to get a little more amped up for them when you turn on the lights to go racing. “
“The track itself will make you work for what you take away from there. I know one thing for sure is the more and more you race a place like Nashville, the better you get because you learn something every time. I’m looking forward to taking what we learned in the past, to the track this weekend. Maybe it will help us get those good, consistent finishes we’ve been searching for. We’re closer, but this might help get us that much closer – faster.”
