Kenny Wallace announced his retirement from NASCAR competition as a driver on Tuesday via a press release from Rusty Wallace Inc. As previously reported, Wallace is slated to drive the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota in the Aug. 1 Xfinity Series race at Iowa Speedway in Newton. That will be the racing veteran’s final NASCAR start.
“To me, this isn’t a sad moment,” Wallace said. “I’m at a truly happy place in my life right now. After all, not too many guys get to have the privilege of being a NASCAR driver, especially for as long as I have. I really wanted to end my long career on a positive not, and I’m very excited about our chances in Iowa. The No. 20 team is one of the best in the sport, and I’m looking forward to having a chance to end my NASCAR career with a great finish. I really want to thank U.S. Cellular for helping me make this happen.”
