"Richmond is my all-time favorite race track. It is definitely time for me to have a good Winston Cup finish. I've had three Busch wins there and I really need to get those types of finishes in the Cup side. We had a good run going in the spring and it was spoiled with 14 laps to go. But, I'm definitely looking forward to going back and having another good run with a solid finish." - Kenny Wallace, driver of the No. 23 Stacker 2 Dodge

WALLACE AND WIMMER WILL CARRY A SPECIAL DECAL TO PAY TRIBUTE TO FALLEN HEROES OF STATION #23--

The Station #23 program was developed to pay tribute to the fallen firefighters of Station 23 FDNY (Midtown Manhattan), who were performing their jobs of saving lives when tragedy struck on September 11, 2001. The name of their station is "The Lion's Den." Through the common grief following September 11th, a special bond was created between Station 23 FDNY and Station 23, Grand Terrace (San Bernardino County FD) in Grand Terrace, California. The two have become "sister stations" and Station 23, Grand Terrace, has since adopted the name "The Lion's Den" in honor of the fallen firefighters. "The Lion's Den" decal being placed on the #23 Stacker 2 Busch and Cup cars feature both "sister stations" and will be included on the team cars throughout the month of September.

WHAT STACKER 2 CAR WILL THE TEAM RUN THIS WEEKEND--

The #23 Stacker 2 car Kenny Wallace will run this weekend is car #70. It's the same car the team ran at Richmond International Raceway in May (started 14th and finished 29th after knocking on the top 10 for most of the race before getting wreck with 14 laps to go), Martinsville Speedway (9th and finished 12th) and New Hampshire International Speedway (started 28th and finished 38th).

WHAT STACKER 2 HAS GOING ON THIS WEEKEND--

Wallace will visit the Stacker 2 souvenir hauler on Saturday. Please check with the trackside trailer for the appropriate time of arrival.
