Fort Worth, Texas (April 6) -- A very excited Michael Waltrip announced to a live television audience that he had set up a deal to allow Kenny Wallace a ride at the Winston Cup Talladega race in April.

Wallace will be behind the wheel of Waltrip's back-up Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Wallace and Waltrip along with Dale Earnhardt Inc. (DEI) had worked out the arrangements to all Wallace the opportunity to race with his former teammate Waltrip.

Wallace will be sponsored for the event by Aaron's -- the primary sponsor of Waltrip's Busch series Chevy. DEI will field the car and the crew for the one-off ride.

Wallace took over the DEI owned Pennzoil Chevy for an injured Steve Park last year following Park's wreck in a Busch Series race at Darlington. He remained in the car for the first four races this year prior to Park's return.
