Michigan International Speedway Review – Mike Wallace
WALLACE JUMPS IN POINTS AFTER MICHIGAN RUN
BROOKLYN, Mich. – Starting in a deep hole, Mike Wallace charged through the field in Saturday’s Alliance Truck Parts 250 Nationwide Series race at Michigan International Speedway and rolled home with a 16th-place finish.
The run was the second best of the season for Wallace in the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller 01 Chevrolet. Five races earlier, he finished seventh at Talladega Superspeedway.
Wallace started 31st Saturday but had moved to 14th 40 laps into the 125-lap race. He raced in the top 20 much of the second half of the race and over the final 15 laps advanced from 19th to 16th.
“It was a nice run for us today,” said team owner Johnny Davis. “It’s the kind of day that we can build on to keep these cars strong for the summer months.”
The run boosted Wallace one spot in points to 16th with the circuit next scheduled to race at the Road America road course in Elkhart Lake, Wisc. June 22.
