Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) announces today that Darrell Wallace, Jr. will pilot the No. 20 ‘Share a Coke’ Toyota Camry in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) race at Daytona International Speedway on Friday, July 4, 2014.
The start will mark Wallace’s second NNS race of the season in the No. 20 Camry. His only other start this season was at Talladega Superspeedway on May 3. Wallace started the race from the third position behind Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Sam Hornish, Jr. and Elliott Sadler. After running the early part of the race solidly in the top 10, an incident in turn four on lap 45 collected Wallace and resulted in a disappointing 31st-place finish.
In addition to his NNS starts this season, Wallace has seven NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) starts this year. The NCWTS most recently competed at Gateway Motorsports Park where Wallace led a race-high 85 of 160 laps on his way to earning his second-career NCWTS win. Overall, he has compiled seven NCWTS starts this season with one win, two top-five finishes, three top-10 finishes, has led 119 laps and has an average start of 10.4 and average finish of 13.7.
