If you have ever watched NASCAR Racing, chances are you know who Kenny Wallace is. If you do not though, fear not, for this little introduction will certainly shed some light on his early life and career. A common question any racer is asked is how they got involved in the industry. It is such a dangerous and competitive sport that many feel as though it would be frightening to embark on such a journey.
Kenny Wallace got involved in this industry by looking up to his father, who was a driver on local dirt tracks of where they lived. This inspired Kenny as he saw his father win race after race after race. It was actually the same effect for Kenny’s two older brothers, who are also involved in the NASCAR Racing industry.
In fact, Kenny first started out as a mechanic for one of his older brothers. This gave him the knowledge and excitement he needed, but it did not last long. He soon believed that he could indeed do the racing, and in 1986 he won a few Rookie awards as a driver. Since that time, he has experienced many different races and enhanced his skills. Throughout the late 1980s and 1990s, Kenny raced against others and switched sponsors from time to time. He achieved personal bests and won some races – he even has the opportunity to race against his two brothers.
The 2000s brought about new and exciting opportunities for Kenny. Again, he did much of the same sponsor switching and participated in many different races throughout this time. He won quite a few races as well, such as the North Carolina Speedway race.
Kenny has achieved many great accomplishments as a NASCAR driver, and the tight bond he shares with his brothers and his father whom also participated in the race just goes to show how much of a bonding sport this can be. In addition, Kenny has also become somewhat of a radio commenter during certain races and a professional inspiration for many children and teenagers to look up to.
In fact, perhaps this is what Kenny is most known for. The belief he had in his father and the inspiration he received from him have continued with Kenny to this day, and he now shares that same inspiration with children and teenagers. Whether this was planned or not does not really matter, for the fact still remains that Kenny is an important racecar driver that encourages children to go after what they believe in and want.
Among all the racecar and NASCAR drivers out there, Kenny Wallace is indeed one of the more well-known. His passion for the sport has taken him far, and he will only continue to experience the fame and excitement of this sport – even as he slowly grows into his old age. Certainly he is one of the best examples of what a human can do when they believe in something and work for something, and never give up.
