If Germain Racing can pull it off, 19-year-old Chrissy Wallace will make her NASCAR debut later this month at Martinsville Speedway – the same place her father made his 1990 debut.
Mike Wallace plans to spot for Chrissy should she be entered in the March 29 Truck Series race. Germain Racing doesn’t have the deal completed and still needs a motor for her truck.
But Chrissy Wallace tested at Martinsville earlier this week and was 11th on the speed charts following Wednesday afternoon’s session.
“For Chrissy to have this opportunity while my career is still going strong, this means I may have the opportunity to race against her in NASCAR’s top series and it is really a neat thought,” Wallace said. “Somewhere along the line, I’d like to race against her in the trucks or in our series, and it would probably be the first time in history that a father races against his daughter in a major NASCAR touring series.”
Never miss a local story.
Wallace was scheduled to make the 300th start of his Nationwide Series career Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway. He made his debut at Martinsville in that series, finishing sixth.
