On Wednesday it was announced that Camping World and Good Sam will be the primary sponsor on Darrell Wallace Jr's No. 54 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota Tundra for 11 of the remaining Camping World Truck Series races this season. The first race for the pairing will be Friday's Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway.
The remaining 17 races on the Truck Series schedule are now all filled sponsorship wise for Wallace.
“It’s very big,” Wallace said. “Finally that stress, I try not to carry it myself, but the team doesn’t have to worry about those unsponsored races anymore. I think we can go to the race track and have a sponsor on the truck and have fun, too. That’s the biggest thing. We keep making our program a little bit better, and we keep knocking on the door of a win, too. I have a feeling it’s right around the corner.”
The 19-year old Wallace is currently tenth in the Camping World Truck Series point standings. He has two top 10 finishes in the first five races of the season with a best of fifth coming at Martinsville Speedway on April 6th.
Wallace knows that he needs to perform with the full sponsorship slate he has now.
“The only pressure we have is, what firesuit do I put on? Who am I representing?” Wallace said. “That’s the biggest thing right now. We’ve still got to go out there and try to impress everybody, without a doubt. This is only for 11 races, and after this season I’m still looking for a sponsor, too. So it’s not like we’re set in stone with anything. I still have to go out there and do what I do best.”
Crashes at Rockingham and Charlotte have relegated him to two 27th place finishes which have him 58 points behind Matt Crafton who leads the points.Tags: Camping World Truck Series, Darrell Wallace Jr., dover international speedway, Kyle Busch Motorsports, Motorsports
