Wallace Jr. Signed by Gibbs Racing
Feb 13, 2009 - updated Feb 13th, 2009 6:52pm
Web posted by

Huntersville, NC. --

The ride continues to get sweeter for Darrell Wallace Jr. The 15 year-old racer has now become a part of one of the most successful organizations in all of motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing.

After winning his first Late-Model stock car race in early 2008 at Franklin County Speedway, the youngster followed it up with a UARA series win at Caraway Speedway, and winning the Rookie of The Year title for the series. With such accolades and skill at such a young age, the masses were wondering when a top NASCAR program would grab up the 15 year-old. The wondering is over, Darrell Jr. is happy to call Joe Gibbs Racing home.

"I couldn't be happier", said a delighted Wallace. "This will give me the best chance to learn and further my career, and Joe Gibbs Racing is the top team going today, they will give me the tools and support I need, and in return i'll give them 110% of everything that I have in me".

The road to todays contract signing has been full of accomplishments for Darrell Jr. He was a winner in his first season racing go-carts coming in second in points. Up next was the Bandeleros, where his 85% win percentage in 2005 is something that current Bandelero drivers look at in awe. He recorded 11 wins in 2006 in his first season in the Legends cars, before moving to the Late-Model stock car division at the end of 2007. 2008 saw the youngster race against the best drivers in the Southeast in the UARA touring series, and by the end of the year he had the respect and eyes of everyone involved. He wasn't just some kid that was there, he was someone they had to beat every race. And his 6th place point standing at the end of the year showed that was extremely hard to do.

Look for more news on Darrell as the season nears, as he does testing in the Camping World East series car for Gibbs, and prepares for a championship run in the 2009 UARA STARS series season. Last year was memorable for the Wallace team, but this season looks to be even better with sponsor backing from Joe Gibbs Driven and the resources from the Gibbs organization. Look for Darrell Jr. in a victory lane near you very soon.
