WALLACE TO TAKE ON O?REILLY USMTS THIRTEEN TIMES IN 2008

WALLACE TO TAKE ON O?REILLY USMTS THIRTEEN TIMES IN 2008

CONCORD, N.C. (Jan. 12) ? Kenny Wallace is a fan favorite
among NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stars, but the 44-year-old
driver, racetrack owner and television personality is
currently without a ride for the upcoming NASCAR season.
But let not your heart be troubled, as dirt racing fans
will have an ample number of opportunities to catch ?The
Hermanator? in action in 2008.

Wallace announced his 2008 dirt track schedule on
Thursday, with 13 dates set to compete with the O?Reilly
USMTS National Tour.

?As of right now I currently have many people helping me
search for a sponsor. We put my marketing video on
kennywallace.com to create a shortcut for anyone
interested in sponsorship. I am currently talking to both
truck and Busch teams and they want me to drive for them
because I am a good driver and am marketable,? Wallace
said. ?Hopefully come Daytona, I will have a ride.?

Wallace's first stop on the O?Reilly USMTS National Tour
will be on Monday, June 2, at the Iowa State Fair Speedway
in Des Moines, Iowa. He'll wrap up his campaign with two
races in The Hunt for the O?Reilly USMTS National
Championship: Tuesday, Aug. 12, at the Eagle (Neb.)
Raceway and Wednesday, Aug. 13, at the Upper Iowa Speedway
in Decorah, Iowa.

As a child, Wallace?s boisterous behavior earned him the
nickname ?Herman? after a mischievous cartoon character
named Herman the German.

Wallace won the first race he ever entered.  It was 1982,
and the youngest member of the racing Wallace family, a
longtime mechanic and crew member for his brothers Rusty
and Mike, had a shot at driving a racecar of his own in
the Illinois Street Stock State Championship.  Kenny?s win
in that race would be the first of many in his racing
career.

In September of 1988, Dale Earnhardt gave Wallace the seat
for his first-ever NASCAR start.  He finished seventh in
his first Busch Series start at Martinsville, Va. The
following year, Wallace raced the full Busch Series
schedule in a car owned by brother Rusty, earning the 1989
Rookie of the Year award and finishing sixth in driver
point standings.

Wallace?s Busch Series accomplishments include nine wins,
10 poles, and eight seasons in the top-10 in driver
points.  In fact, Wallace has finished in the top-10 in
every full Busch Series season he has ever run, including
a second-place run in 1991 that ended just 74 points shy
of the championship in what is still one of the closest
points battles in series history.

Wallace drove the #78 Furniture Row Racing Chevrolet in
the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series in 2007. Wallace was voted in
by fans to compete in the NASCAR Nextel All-Star Challenge
at Lowe?s Motor Speedway last May.

In addition to his driving duties, Wallace also works as
an on-air personality for SPEED Channel on shows such as
NASCAR RaceDay and NASCAR Victory Lane. He was also
featured on the show NASCAR Drivers: 360 on FX and is part
owner of the Macon (Ill.) Speedway.

After racing three times with the O?Reilly USMTS road
warriors in 2007, the following 13 dates are part of his
2008 agenda:

Mon Jun 2 ? Iowa State Fair Speedway, Des Moines, IA
Tue Jun 17 ? Mineral City Speedway, Fort Dodge, IA
