WALLACE TO DRIVE NO. 15 BILLY BALLEW MOTORSPORTS TRUCK AT IOWA
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (June 25, 2010) - Officials of Billy Ballew Motorsports (BBM) announced today that Steve Wallace will return behind the wheel of the team's No. 15 Toyota of Des Moines Toyota Tundra for the July 11th Iowa 200 at Iowa Speedway.
Wallace, driver of the No. 66 5-Hour Energy Toyota Camry in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, has driven in two prior NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) events, both for BBM. In his NCWTS debut, Wallace pedaled his way to a fourth-place finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway in March, followed by a 12th-place finish at Nashville Superspeedway in April.
Wallace, the youngest son of Iowa Speedway's chief designer and racing legend, Rusty Wallace, has enjoyed success at Iowa in the past. In his two prior appearances there, the younger Wallace won the inaugural ARCA RE/MAX Series event in 2006 and ran among the top-five for the majority of last year's Nationwide Series event, before being taken out of contention by late-race contact.
"I'm thrilled to go racing with Billy Ballew Motorsports again," Wallace said. "The Truck Series is a lot of fun and I really enjoy working with the 15 team; we've done pretty well in the two races we've run together. I want to thank Toyota of Des Moines for coming on board our Tundra. They're a good friend to motorsports and I appreciate their support. We'll do our best to get them in victory lane."
Toyota of Des Moines is no stranger to NASCAR racing. The dealership has sponsored several drivers and has been involved with different racing series. Toyota of Des Moines has previously partnered with Mike Skinner in the NCWTS, Kyle Busch in the NASCAR Camping World West Series and Corey LaJoie in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series.
