DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. (August 7 2002) - Kenny Wallace, NASCAR Busch Series, Grand National Division driver has filed an entry for the Hills Bros. All Pro Series, NASCAR Touring Charter/Hardee's 250 on August 21 at Bristol (TN) Motor Speedway.

Wallace will be driving the Richie Wauters prepared Victor Ford Taurus, the same car he drove in the 2001 Hills Bros. All Pro Series event at Bristol.

Wallace finished second to race winner Jeff Fultz in last year's event making a strong last lap move on Brian Hoppe to take the runnerup spot. "I always enjoying running with this series," commented Wallace. "I don't get to compete with the series that frequently because of the NASCAR Busch Series schedule but let me tell you this is tough racing. These drivers are pros and do a tremendous job at Bristol only seeing the track once a year. They do not give you an inch and I don't care which NASCAR National Series you run, you earn everything you get."

"Rusty competed with his series back in the 80's and I have run a couple of races in the last decade but when Richie (Wauters) called me about running again this year I said you bet I will run."

"Kenny is a excellent driver," said Jeff Fultz last year's winner at Bristol. "He knows this track with his experience in a NASCAR Winston Cup and NASCAR Busch Series car. He has won here and last years' finish is a good example. He had the inside line on Hoppe's car and kept his car on the lowside of turns one and two finishing second. At Bristol you don't give an inch and you take everything you can get and with his experience he knew where he had to be in the late stages of the race."

The Charter/Hardee's 250 will be a companion event to the Goody's Dash Series, NASCAR Touring race on Wednesday, August 21. The Hills Bros. All Pro Series race should take the green flag at 8:30 pm.
