Mike, Chrissy Wallace set to make history
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.
