QUOTE WORTHY

Wallace on racing at Atlanta:

“Atlanta is a fun, fast track. It really has a lot of character in it with the older surface and really allows you to race all over the place. I’m definitely ready to get there and see what we can do with this Ford EcoBoost Mustang. We had a great run in Daytona and hopefully we can build on that this weekend.”
