WALLACE ON THE TELCEL-MOTOROLA 200 AND AUTODROMO HERMANOS RODRIGUEZ:
"I really enjoyed our first trip to Mexico last year and I have been looking forward to going back. Going into the trip last year I didn't know what to expect, so I just kept an open mind and I was extremely impressed with how well we were treated and how organized everything turned out. The track is a very nice facility, but it's definitely a different layout, especially with the baseball field in the middle of the road course. Our #22 ppc Racing team posted a strong eight place finish last year, and this time we are looking to improve on that result with the AutoZone Ford. We had a tough finish last weekend in California when something broke on the car, so a strong run this weekend in Mexico would be good medicine for our AutoZone team."
WALLACE ON ROAD COURSE RACING AND PAST EXPERIENCE:
"I have always enjoyed road racing and really I have always excelled at it. I wish that our schedule allowed us to race on more road courses, but right now we just get to do it twice a year in Mexico and at Watkins Glen. We ran really strong in Mexico last year, and this year we should be one of the favorites to compete for the win. The car that we're taking is the same road course car that I finished eight in last year."
WALLACE ON THE ATMOSPHERE IN MEXICO CITY AND THE RACE FANS:
"The atmosphere in Mexico City was electric last year. Everyone down there was so nice to us and really made us feel welcome. You could really tell that they appreciated us coming so far to race. Everything from the track facilities to the hotels were first class. The most amazing part was how the fans reacted to us. It was amazing to see so many flags and signs in the stands, and the best part was that I found out I even have fans down there!"
