Kenny Wallace Announces 2013 Plans


NASCAR fan favorite on the track and on the microphone, Kenny Wallace, has announced his plans for the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series today.

Wallace will continue to focus on his dirt racing and his work for SPEED, while focusing on his part-time schedule in the Nationwide Series.

RAB Racing will field a second Toyota, #29, for Wallace in nine races this year. More races could be added to the schedule for Wallace if sponsorship is found.

“Ideally, I’d love to run every race,” he said. “But the money just isn’t there right now. We’re looking, but it’s not there yet. When Robby offered me the chance to run some races for him in a second RAB Toyota Camry this season, I jumped at it.”

Wallace has put up some solid numbers for RAB Racing in the past two seasons, but there was a change made behind the hood of RAB Racing’s Toyota that could excel Wallace and his teammate Alex Bowman even further and put them closer to victory lane.

RAB Racing will now use engines supplied by Joe Gibbs Racing. Previously, Triad Motors supplied the engines for RAB Racing.

“Kenny has been an integral part of building RAB Racing into the organization that it is today,” said Benton. “Having a second team in our organization to compare notes with will make us stronger as a whole. We will field the 29 car for as many events as we have sponsorship in 2013.”

Benton also said the team will announced sponsorship deals at a later date, but that many of Wallace’s familiar sponsors are going to be returning.

Wallace says the nine currently scheduled races will give him 900 total starts in NASCAR’s top three touring divisions. He currently has 536 starts in the Nationwide Series.
