Kenny Wallace brings his infectious humor and trademark laugh to his work as an analyst for NASCAR RACEDAY and NASCAR VICTORY LANE.
As a driver, Wallace set the NASCAR record in 2011 for most career Nationwide Series starts, amassing nine wins and 10 pole positions, 66 top-five and 173 top-10 finishes in 543 Nationwide Series starts. In a racing career spanning 25 years, the St. Louis native has competed in 900 races in NASCAR’s top three divisions since his 1988 NASCAR debut driving for Dale Earnhardt.
Wallace, the son of accomplished Midwestern short-track racer, Russ Wallace, and brother of NASCAR drivers Rusty and Mike, also finished runner-up in the Nationwide Series points in 1991 and is one of only four NASCAR drivers to have won the Most Popular Driver award multiple times. Wallace also maintains a rigorous dirt-racing schedule in the No. 36 Federated Auto Parts DIRTcar entry.
He and wife, Kim, have three daughters, and reside in North Carolina.
