MOORESVILLE, NC (March 31, 2005) -- Shane Wallace and his family owned team head into this weekend with the best start to their race season that they can remember. After two solid top ten finishes in the first two races of the USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series, Wallace will pilot his unsponsored #38 Ford on Saturday in the running of the BF Goodrich 250 presented by the U.S. Army at the Greenville Pickens Speedway.

"This has been a solid start to the season for us and we look to keep that momentum going this weekend," stated Wallace. "I have only raced once at Greenville and that was about four years ago in a late model race. We went down there and tested a little bit on Monday but the wet track conditions didn't really allow anyone much of a chance to do a lot. We ran about 40 laps or so and seemed to get the car somewhat comfortable so we should be in decent shape when we unload on Saturday."

Wallace currently sits fifth in the overall series standings after finishing sixth and eighth in the first two events of the season in the Southern Division. Although only 21-years old, Wallace will be making his 32nd career start in the USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series -- all with his family owned race team.

"My goal this year is to contend for this championship and so far we are off to a good start," said Shane. "We just need to continue what we are doing here and I think we will pick up a win or two and stay near the top in the points. I look forward to running on a track such as Greenville Pickens that has so much history to go with it and has played a big part in the careers of so many previous racers in this sport. It would mean a lot to win there but in the big picture we just want to come home with another finish near the top."

The running of the BF Goodrich 250 presented by the U.S. Army will see the green flag drop at 8:00 p.m. EST on Saturday evening. The event will be televised nationally on April 9th on the SPEED Channel at 10:00 p.m. EST.
