"The World 600 is the longest race we run all year and it has a lot of history to it too. This race tests everybody. It tests the driver to see if he can make it 600 miles. It tests the engine builder to build an engine that can have great horsepower and stay together for 600 miles and it tests the crews. It's a long day and it just wears on everybody to run 600 miles, but when it's over and you've had a good race, you're all pumped up."
    -- Kenny Wallace, driver of the No. 23 Stacker 2 Dodge

WALLACE ON THE BUSIEST DAY IN MOTORSPORTS--
"We're really looking forward to the Coca Cola 600. We're encouraged about the new car we brought to the Winston Open. It's a new car, with a new body design that ran very competitively in the Winston Open. I think it is really going to show what it's all about this weekend. We qualified well with it and we ran up front in the Winston Open. But, that Winston Open is a tough deal; it's only two segments, one with 20 laps and one with 10. That makes it awful hard on all of us. But, we had a decent night and it certainly gave us a lot of hope for the 600.

"Sunday is a big day in motorsports.  The Indy 500 and the World 600 both
take place.  We'll sit around and watch the Indy 500 and see what Robby
Gordon can do.  Then we'll get ourselves pumped up and ready for 600 miles
in Charlotte.  It's just a whirlwind of racing all jammed into one day."

WHAT DODGE WILL THE STACKER 2 TEAM RUN THIS WEEKEND--
The #23 Stacker 2 Dodge Kenny Wallace will run is the same car that he competed with in the Winston Open. It is a brand new car with a new body design. The #23 team thinks they have an excellent piece of equipment.

WHAT KENNY WALLACE HAS GOING ON THIS WEEKEND--
* Kenny Wallace will make an appearance at Speed Street on behalf of his sponsor, Stacker 2, on Friday, May 23 from 4-5 pm. Please come and mingle with the Stacker 2 folks.

*       Kenny Wallace will also play host to his annual Kenny Wallace Fan Club
outing.  It takes place on Saturday at Harris Middle School in Concord, NC.
