Kenny Wallace won the first race he ever entered in 1982. The youngest member of the racing Wallace family, Kenny had a shot at driving a race car of his own in the Illinois Street Stock State Championship. Kenny’s win in that race would be the first of many in his racing career.
Born in 1963, Kenny is the youngest of three boys, and racing was a household reality before any of the boys could wheel a car. Kenny started out as a mechanic for his oldest brother Rusty’s homegrown race team. After winning that first race in 1982, Kenny decided that his place in racing was in the driver’s seat. That day was a preview of things to come. In 1986, Kenny joined the ASA ranks, winning Rookie of the Year honors.
In September of 1988, Dale Earnhardt gave Kenny the seat for his first-ever NASCAR start. He finished seventh in his first Nationwide Series start at Martinsville, Virginia. The following year, Kenny raced the full Nationwide Series schedule in a car owned by brother Rusty, earning the 1989 Rookie of the Year award and finishing sixth in driver point standings.
Kenny’s Nationwide Series accomplishments include nine wins, ten poles and ten seasons in the top ten in driver points. Kenny is the only driver to have won the Nationwide Series Most Popular Driver Award three times, in 1991, 1994 and 2006. Kenny has the most No. 1 starts in the NASCAR Nationwide series history. He has grabbed three poles, six top-five, and 27 top-ten finishes, including three career high second-place runs.
Kenny has also found success in the world of television. He is the co-host of two programs for "SPEED TV" each week, "NASCAR RaceDay," which airs before the Sprint Cup race each week, and "NASCAR Victory Lane," which extends post-race coverage. With Kenny’s competitive battles on the racetrack and popularity on television, he has become one of the most sought after drivers in NASCAR racing today for sponsor endorsements and speaking engagements.
Kenny is not only an asphalt race car driver. He is the winner of the Tony Stewart 2005 Super Late Model Charity Race "Prelude To The Dream" at the Eldora Speedway "on dirt."
