Fort Worth Race Preview November 2013 – Mike Wallace
WALLACE READY AS SERIES RESUMES IN TEXAS
FORT WORTH, Texas – After two weeks on the sidelines, the Nationwide Series roars back to life this week with Saturday’s O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway.
Mike Wallace and the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller team are ready for another run on the tough Texas track in the GK Services 01 Chevrolet.
“Texas is an unusual track because it’s very fast but also very technical,” Wallace said. “You have to have a good setup there, in addition to great engine power, to do well. And it’s a driver’s track in that you have to be on your toes every lap.”
Wallace finished 21st in the April Nationwide race at TMS. His best finish in a Nationwide race at the track is 12th.
Nationwide teams had run for 21 straight weeks before taking the past two weekends off. After the Texas race, the season will conclude with events at Phoenix and Homestead, Fla.
Nationwide practice is scheduled at 2:05 p.m. and 6 p.m. (ET) Friday. Qualifying is at 12:05 p.m. Saturday, with the race to follow at 3:30 p.m.
THE RACE: 300 miles, 200 laps, race 31 of the Nationwide Series season
