Steve Wallace Comments on Atlanta 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway:

"This is going to be awesome. I'm really excited about getting behind the wheel of a truck. It's something I've always wanted to do. I can't think of a better way to start things off than driving for Billy (Ballew). His teams run so well at Atlanta (Motor Speedway), which gives me a lot of confidence going into the weekend.

"I know it will be an adjustment to hop in a truck. It's going to be a transition for sure. Thankfully I've got a great team to work with, which should help speed up my learning curve.

"The guys in the Truck Series race hard. They race every lap like it's the last one. It's 100% from the time the green flag drops. I know I've got to bring my A-game. Hopefully I'll be able to stay out of trouble and take the Red Top Auction Toyota to the front."
