KENNY WALLACE ON INDIANAPOLIS RACEWAY PARK ...

"I am really excited about racing at IRP. It brings all of us drivers back to our roots of racing under the lights on Saturday nights at our local short tracks. I think it is neat that NASCAR still lets the Busch Series race at IRP. It shows that they still remember what got us where we are today.

"I am really excited about our chances this weekend at IRP. I won the pole there in 2001 and know that Chris Rice [crew chief] is bringing a great car for me to drive."

Kenny Wallace happenings ...

Wallace will make his 300th career Busch Series start Saturday night. This historic start will put him a category with racing greats such as Dale Jarrett and Tommy Houston. The start also puts him in a very small group of drivers that have started 300 races each in both the Busch Series and the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series.

Wallace will be very busy while he is in Indianapolis. He will drive the Stacker 2®/YJ Stinger Chevrolet in the Busch Series race on Saturday. He will also compete in Sunday's Brickyard 400 behind the wheel of the No. 00 Aaron's Lease Chevrolet for Michael Waltrip Racing.

Get to Know Jack...One-year-old Jack Sable suffers from a chromosome disorder that affects many people in the United States. When Stacker 2® heard about Jack and his condition, it took the family under its wing. For every lap Wallace and the Stacker 2®/YJ Stinger team completes this year, NVE Pharmaceuticals, the parent company of Stacker 2®, will donate $1 to the Sable family to help pay for Jack's medical costs. So far this season the Stacker 2®/YJ Stinger team has raised $3,842 to help Jack and his family.

Jack was released from the hospital Wednesday, July 14. He has made incredible progress in the last couple of weeks, and the doctors felt he was able to go home and try to regain a sense of normalcy. Learn more about the Sable family on Stacker2racing.com.
