Kenny Wallace Added to Lucas Oil Speedway’s SRX Driver Roster
One of racing's most-popular figures has been added to the driver lineup for the Superstar Racing Experience (SRX) event on Aug. 17 at Lucas Oil Speedway.
St. Louis' Kenny Wallace, a nine-time NASCAR Xfinity Series winner, former Fox Sports television analyst and renowned dirt Modified competitor, will be part of the SRX season finale at Wheatland.
Wallace joins six others previously announced for the Lucas Oil Speedway race - former NASCAR Cup Series champions Bobby Labonte and Brad Keselowski, retired NASCAR stars Clint Bowyer and Ryan Newman, four-time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves and NASCAR Truck Series regular Hailie Deegan.
This will be Wallace''s first SRX appearance. The driver rosters for all six SRX races will be finalized in coming weeks.
"I've always been a big fan of the SRX Series because it's good for racing in every way and now that it's on Thursday nights, it's even better," Wallace said in an SRX news release. "I am truly honored and humbled at the same time to race with these world-class drivers. When you see me at an SRX event, I will be smiling from ear to ear and giving it everything I got on and off the racetrack."
