Rusty Wallace Racing Returns to NASCAR

Rusty Wallace Racing, which closed its doors because of a lack of sponsorship prior to the 2012 season, hopes to compete in 10-15 Nationwide Series races in 2013 with driver Steve Wallace.

Steve Wallace, son of soon-to-be NASCAR Hall-of-Famer Rusty Wallace, will have sponsorship from the mortgage and real-estate firm Richard Tocado Companies. His first race in the No. 66 Ford will be in May at Charlotte.

Wallace has six career top-five finishes in 192 career Nationwide starts.

“We all learned a lot over the last year or two and we’re looking forward to having the opportunity to show it,” team owner Rusty Wallace said in a news release.

“Our goal for 2013 is to compete in 10-15 events. We’re looking forward to growing our relationship with the Richard Tocado Companies and are very positive about what the future holds.” (SportingNews)
