NASCAR Hall of Fame PortraitsRusty Wallace Returns to No. 2 at Daytona Test

With prodding, NASCAR Hall of Famer to get back in car at Preseason Thunder

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 8, 2014) – What started as friendly ribbing and good-natured coaxing from team members on pit road late last season has resulted in NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace’s return to the driver’s seat of Penske Racing’s No. 2 Miller Lite Ford — for an afternoon.

Joey Logano and David Gilland’s radio chatter is now being investigated by NASCAR from Richmond as well now to allow Joey to pass Gilliland and gain that all important 1 point needed to get into the Chase.  Although they are not teammates, they are both Ford’s and Joey did finish 1 spot ahead of David after the 38’s lap times dropped off by almost a second….hmmmmmm

NASCAR Statement

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 11, 2013) – NASCAR is aware of reports about the #22 and #38 radio communications at Richmond International Raceway and is looking into it, but has yet to see anything in full context that requires any action.

2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series MichiganThrough much of the early season – and as teams develop their Gen-6 race cars – Ford had appeared to trail both Chevrolet and Toyota. The tide appears to be changing. Two Ford teams and three Ford Fusion drivers occupy top-10 positions in the standings. Carl Edwards, who trails leader Jimmie Johnson by 25 points, is second with one victory. Roush Fenway Racing teammate Greg Biffle, the Pocono winner earlier this month, is sixth. Brad Keselowski and Penske Racing stand ninth. A third-place finish at Sonoma was Edwards’ best since Talladega while Biffle recorded his third consecutive top 10. Keselowski’s teammate, Joey Logano, continues to impress in his first season in the No. 22 Ford. An 11th-place finish on the road course snapped a four-race, top-10 run but left the Connecticut driver just 14 points out of a Chase eligible ranking.
