Kenny Wallace Quotes:

“I am once again ready to go! Although it’s my first race of the season, I’ve been racing an awful lot recently. It’s like riding a bicycle; you never forget and I’ll be up to speed right away. Iowa is a good track for me and I can’t wait to get there and represent the title sponsor of the weekend, U.S. Cellular. The fans have played a huge part in designing the paint scheme of this No. 29 Toyota Camry. They were able to pick from three different schemes, so this car is really inspired by the fans. My crew chief Chris Rice has been one of the longest running driver-crew chief relationships of my career, so I know that we will be back in the swing of things quickly and I look so forward to it.”
