WALLACE ON RACING AT INFINEON RACEWAY:

"I really enjoy racing at Sears Point. You get to shift gears and have some fun as a driver. I really had a good time a few years ago, I think it was 2000, when I led some laps and finished 13th. Those are the fun times, but you can have trouble very easily. You have to shift gears and that puts a lot of strain on the gears and transmissions, so you really need to know how to finesses the car at the road course. It's real hard to go a lap down there, so if you get a good starting spot, keep the car on the course, you should wind up having a good finish."

WALLACE ON RACING IN THE WINE COUNTRY:

"I really enjoy going to Sonoma. It's some beautiful country that Kim and I really enjoy going to. We're going to go tour some vineyards with my brother Mike and his car owner and that should be a lot of fun. We usually try and see a couple of them every year."

STACKER 2 EQUIPMENT FOR THIS WEEKEND:

The Stacker 2 team goes to Infineon Raceway with car 50, the same car they ran at Infineon Raceway and Watkins Glen International Speedway last year.

WALLACE ON LAST WEEK'S RACE:

"It was an okay week. I'm a little disappointed with the end result, but it 's a tough deal. We were at the tail end off the lead lap on one of those last restarts, but there were some cars that came and got tires and we didn' t. Most of them got by us there at the end and we wound up 25th. We'll take it and move on and go to Sears Point. I always look into the future and not the past. It doesn't do any good to dwell on the past, all you can do is learn from it and move on."

WHAT KENNY WALLACE HAS GOING ON THIS WEEKEND:

Wallace will sign autographs at the Stacker 2 souvenir trailer on Saturday. Please check with the souvenir trailer to confirm time of signing.

WALLACE FAMILY PLANS FOR THE SUMMER:

"Kim and I have some great plans for the summer with the girls. They've never been to New York City, so we're going there and then we'll head from there and go to Cooperstown to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Then we're going to go to the Atlantis in the Bahamas for a couple days and finally we'll head back to St. Louis (MO) and visit some family and friends and go to Six Flags. We'll do all of these trips during the middle of the week since we race on the weekends. But, it should be a neat deal. We've never done this before and we're all pretty pumped up about it."
