GAFFNEY, S.C. – Mike Wallace drove the No. 01 Mac’s Pride Chevy to a 25th place finish Friday, May 10th at Darlington Raceway. The homecoming weekend for JD Motorsports started on Friday morning as the team went through practice and qualifying for the race on Friday night. The veteran Wallace finished the lone practice session 25th, and backed it up by qualifying 25th for the race. As the race began, the No. 01 Mac’s Pride Chevy advanced into the top-20 before a series of pit stops after a lap 25 caution. The crew went to work and reeled off a great stop, putting Wallace back out 20th. The next phase of the race included a long, and unexpected, green flag run. During this time, the No. 01 machine was caught one lap down after a fierce battle with leader Kyle Busch to remain on the lead lap. As the laps winded down, Wallace brought the car down pit road for four tires and fuel. At the finish, the team crossed the line 25th. The finish moved Wallace up to 18th in the Driver’s Standings. Mike Wallace Quotes: “This was a good weekend for JD Motorsports. We both finished top-25, neither car was wrecked, and both are back in the top-30 in Owner’s Points. I am proud of our small team this weekend and what we accomplished. We ended up going a lap down which prevented us from gaining many spots at the end, but we had a competitive car all night, with great pit stops.”
