NEWTON, Iowa – Oct. 30, 2011- Following is a statement issued on behalf of Iowa Speedway:
The Clement family and Iowa Speedway’s staff extends its deepest sympathies to the Wallace family after the passing of Russ Wallace, father of NASCAR racing legend and Iowa Speedway co-owner Rusty Wallace. Russ’ impact on the legacy of NASCAR has been immense. His sons, Rusty, Mike and Kenny have all won many races in NASCAR’s three national touring series and grandson, Steve, is a current Nationwide Series driver. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Wallace family, the friends and the racing community which surrounds them in this difficult time.
