The smell of gasoline, sound of high revving racing engines and fast flashy cars whizzing around a race track are enough to get any racing fan going. NASCAR (National Association of Stock Car Racing) has a special place in the hearts of millions of racing fans around the world and one of the key characteristics that attracts people to it, are its drivers. They are about as "regular" as regular folks get and are more often than not, available for their fans.
One of these much adored "regular guys" is Rusty Wallace. Rusty has been racing in the stock car circuit for over 25 years and has become a real fan favorite amongst NASCAR fans. He paid his dues racing in various local and minor leagues before making the big jump to NASCAR's Winston Cup series, where his #2 Miller Lite Dodge was often a top performer.
Rusty Wallace retired from full-time racing in the NASCAR Nextel Cup series during the 2005 Ford 400 race held at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He may still make occasional appearances but even still, his retirement does not mean he is done with stock car racing. Rusty is part owner of the Penske Racing South team along with Roger Penske, and they have two cars in the Nextel Cup series driven Kurt Busch and Ryan Newman. Rusty also owns RWI Racing which fields Jamie McMurray's #64 Dodge Charger in the NASCAR Busch Series.
Rusty is truly one of the more charismatic individuals, let alone a NASCAR driver. I hope you will enjoy this Rusty Wallace website!
