Wallace on racing at Charlotte:
“I’m really looking forward to racing at home this weekend in Charlotte with our Leidos Mustang. It’s always cool to see all of the families of our guys come out and watch what we do every week. This weekend is also important with it being a cutoff race in the Chase. We just need to be smooth and have a solid run on Friday to move on to the next round and closer to a shot at the championship.”
