Statement On The Condition of Stephen Wallace

BRISTOL, TN (August 26, 2004, 1:20 AM ET)--Following his vicious turn three accident in Wednesday night's Food City 150 at Bristol Motor Speedway, Stephen Wallace, 17 year-old son of NASCAR Champion, Rusty Wallace, was airlifted from the speedway to Bristol Regional Medical Center. Currently, Wallace is in stable condition and is awake and alert. He will be held overnight for observation and further evaluation of possible injuries.

Wallace started an impressive 10th in what was his Hooters ProCup Series debut and ran solidly in the top-five and top-ten, on the lead lap, until his accident with less than ten laps remaining in the race.

The Wallace family greatly appreciates the outpouring of support they have received. An updated statement on Stephen's condition will be released Thursday afternoon.
