Mike, Chrissy Wallace set to make history

BY foxsports • October 29, 2009

You have to wonder just what is going through Mike Wallace's mind. Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Talladega Superspeedway can be nerve-racking enough. This time, however, he'll also have to marshal the emotions of having his 21-year-old daughter, Chrissy, on the track with him.

Their history-making run, scheduled for Saturday at the 2.66-mile track, is drawing a lot of attention to a driver already used to inheriting just that. Chrissy Wallace carries the pedigree of a family steeped in NASCAR. Now, she's trying to make her own name in the sport. This weekend, she'll take another step in the slow process toward doing that — and she'll do so with her father also on the track.
