Wallace Joins RFR
Darrell Wallace Jr will drive in the Xfinity Series for Roush Fenway Racing in 2015, the team announced.
Wallace, who was released from Joe Gibbs Racing after JGR couldn’t secure full time sponsorship for Wallace in 2015, will take over driving duties of the No. 6 Ford Mustang that Trevor Bayne drove last season. Bayne has moved to the No. 6 RFR Cup Ford.
I’ve had a remarkable journey over the last few years thanks to people who have put me in a position to win the races that I have. When I first joined the sport, many said I would never compete with the real drivers. Now, as I join the winningest (Xfinity) team in NASCAR history, I take that as a responsibility to add more wins to the team’s legacy and help tear down the barriers for the next generation of NASCAR drivers.
RFR president Steve Newmark:
[Wallace] has a charismatic personality and at the same time has exhibited the ability to win on the race track. We are looking forward to getting him in our race cars next season.
Wallace will join Chris Buescher, Ryan Reed, and Elliott Sadler.
