Kenny Wallace will give it a go at The Great American Race - and he's got help to do it.
American Ethanol will sponsor Wallace as he attempts to qualify for the 2012 Daytona 500 (Feb. 26 live on FOX).
The SPEED TV analyst will enter the Great American Race behind the wheel of the No. 09 Toyota for Robby Benton's RAB Racing.
American Ethanol is also expected to sponsor Wallace for five additional races in the NASCAR Nationwide Series this season. Wallace has six NNS wins.
Although Wallace currently competes full-time in the Nationwide Series for RAB and finished seventh in the 2011 point standings, the 48-year-old St. Louis native has 344 career Cup starts. Wallace's best finish was second in 2000 at Talladega Superspeedway when he pushed the late Dale Earnhardt to his 76th and final Cup win.
American Ethanol will also back Austin Dillon at Richard Childress Racing for five Nationwide races this season and one Sprint Cup race later this year.
