Wendell Wallace Returns Home After Wild West Shootout in Arizona

January 23, 2006

(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Wendell Wallace, of Batesville, Arkansas returned back home to the Razorback State today after competing in all five events of the ‘Wild West Shootout’ Series at the Central Arizona Raceway in Casa Grande, Arizona. After winning the first series event and finishing second in the second show on January 14 & 15 respectively, Wendell had several strong outings in the three events that closed out the series this past week.

On Wednesday, January 18, Wendell finished third in his heat race despite a badly smoking powerplant and rolled off tenth for the $3,000 to win feature event. The driver of the Reva’s Western & Work Wear / J&J Steel / Garrett Racing #88 GRT / Gaerte Grand Prix fought his way all the way to the second position, only to fade in the final laps to bring home a solid fifth place effort. The series took a few days off before Saturday’s $3,000 to win event. Wendell once again finished third in his heat race, but finished second in the 40-lap feature event behind Terry Phillips, who captured three series wins at C.A.R.

In Sunday’s $7,500 to win event, “The Batesville Bullet” had his worst luck of the ‘Wild West Shootout’ Series. After capturing the win in his heat race, Wendell was running second to eventual winner Jack Sullivan with only three laps to go when he suffered a flat tire on his #88 mount. He headed pitside for fresh rubber, but limped home with a disappointing twelfth place finish. In all, Wendell logged one victory and four Top Five finishes in the five series events in his first racing trip past the Rocky Mountains.

“We had some bad luck to close out the series, but overall, it was a good start to our 2006 racing season,” commented Wallace on his way home from Arizona. “Our car was pretty strong and we were in contention to win a few more of the races, but it didn’t turn out that way. It gives us some momentum heading into Speedweeks in Georgia and Florida. We plan on racing a lot this year, so hopefully we can keep running strong and the wins will take care of themselves. I want to thank J&J Steel, Garrett Racing, JFR Graphics, GRT Race Cars, Gaerte Engines, and especially Reva’s Western & Work Wear. They came on board to sponsor us for the Arizona trip and they were great people to work with and represent throughout our week-and-a-half stay in Arizona.”

The Wendell Wallace Autosports team will now gear up for the 2006 Speedweeks opener at the Golden Isles Speedway in Brunswick, Georgia on February 1. Wendell is scheduled to compete in all four nights of the ‘Super Bowl of Racing II’ at the 5/8-mile Georgia speedplant. From there, Wendell and the team will head to the East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida for the 30th edition of the ‘Winternationals.’ They will compete in six straight nights of wheel-to-wheel racing action at the place deemed as the “Clay by the Bay.” Their busy Speedweeks will wrap up with six straight nights of Dirt Late Model competition on February 13-18 at the Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida.

Wendell Wallace Up Front After Two Events of Wild West Shootout

January 17, 2006

(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) After admittedly suffering one of his worst seasons
of his career in 2005, Wendell Wallace, of Batesville, Arkansas, is off to a
terrific start in his ’06 campaign. The driver known as the “Batesville
Bullet” has been one of the strongest cars at the Central Arizona Raceway in
Casa Grande, Arizona during the ‘Wild West Shootout Series’ events. Wendell
drove his Reva’s Western & Work Wear / J&J Steel / Garrett Racing #88 GRT /
Gaerte Grand Prix to a $3,000 victory last Saturday in round one of the five
race series.

In that event, Wendell came from the eighth spot in his heat race to finish
second and earn a spot in the feature event. He then took the lead from
John Anderson on lap fourteen of the A-Main and held off fellow Mid-America
Racing Series (MARS) competitor and GRT driver Terry Phillips for the $3,000
win. However, Terry repaid Wendell the favor on Sunday, as the Springfield,
Missouri native bested Wendell for the $5,000 top prize. Wendell ended up a
close second and took home $2,500 for his second place performance in round
two of the ‘Wild West Shootout Series.’

“Our car is performing very well right now and hopefully that will continue
throughout the next three nights of racing action out here,” commented
Wallace while out on a hunting trip on his day off today. “I think we had a
chance at the win on Sunday, but a late caution came out and that ended our
run. The track was great on Saturday, but it took a lot more rubber for
Sunday’s race. Hopefully, the track prep crew will have it racy again on
Wednesday night.”

The Wendell Wallace Autosports team will be back in action on Wednesday
night with another $3,000 to win feature event at Casa Grande. The ‘Wild
West Shootout Series’ will conclude over the weekend with a $3,000 to win
event on Saturday and a $7,500 to win finale on Sunday. For more
information concerning these events, point your web browser to

Wendell and the team would also like to thank Reva’s Western & Work Wear for
coming on board as a sponsor for the ‘Wild West Shootout Series’ events.
Reva’s Western & Work Wear is located in Casa Grande, Arizona and is a
strong supporter of dirt racing and the Central Arizona Raceway. If you are
ever out in the Casa Grande area, be sure to stop by Reva's Western & Work
Wear. You can reach them via telephone at 520.836.9770.

The five-race ‘Wild West Shootout’ will commence this Saturday, January 14 at C.A.R. with a $3,000 to win Dirt Late Model event, while the following day will pay a $5,000 winner’s purse.

The two Mid-America Racing Series (MARS) competitors will travel together out to Arizona in hopes of putting together a strong opening to their respective racing seasons.

“I have never been out there before to race, so I am really looking forward to kicking off the 2006 season at Casa Grande this weekend,” commented the veteran Batesville, Arkansas driver on Tuesday. “Jack (Sullivan) has been out there several times, so he has clued me in as to what to expect out there. We had a disappointing season last year and we are hoping to start this year off with a bang. I didn’t travel a whole lot last year, but we are going to Arizona and if everything holds up, we will go to Georgia and Florida for the entire Speedweeks schedule.”

The five-race stretch at the Central Arizona Raceway in Casa Grande, Arizona is outlined below:

Saturday, January 14 - $3,000 to win
