Wallace to bring fan excitement and momentum to Milwaukee Mile in July
March 28, 2013 (West Allis, Wis.) - Joining a growing list of all-star drivers competing in the Swiss Colony Howie Lettow Memorial 150 presented by RaceTeamGear.com event July 8-9 at The Milwaukee Mile is one of the most affable characters in all of NASCAR, accomplished racer and TV personality Kenny Wallace.
One year ago, his older brother Rusty Wallace came out of driving retirement to compete in the inaugural Howie Lettow 150 and will be listed as Kenny's car owner. This year, among the stellar field of expected driving talent Kenny will face includes uber-popular NASCAR champion driver and Wisconsin native Matt Kenseth.
"Rusty told me DO NOT take this race lightly because the best are there!" Kenny emphatically stated in a recent interview. "I studied Rusty's situation (last year) real close. My number one goal is to make the feature."
Growing up in St. Louis, Mo., Kenny said it was a big deal in the late 1970's as an impressionable teenager to come to Milwaukee to work on Rusty's crew and served as a rear tire changer.
