For the first time in NASCAR's history, a father-daughter duo will race in a national series event. Mike Wallace and his 21-year-old daughter, Chrissy, are slated to compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Mountain Dew 250 at Talladega Superspeedway on Oct. 31. Chrissy will be behind the wheel of an entry for Rick Ware Racing. She is without a guaranteed starting position in the field and must earn a spot in qualifying. The younger Wallace ran six truck series races in 2008, earning a best finish of 18th in her debut at Martinsville Speedway. She finished ninth in the ARCA Re/MAX Series race at Talladega last year. Though this will mark the first time for a father-daughter duo, father-son combinations have appeared across NASCAR's national racing series all throughout its 61-year history. Lee and Richard Petty; Richard and Kyle Petty; Bobby and Davey Allison; Buck and Buddy Baker; Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt Jr. are just a few. In the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Mike and Dustin Skinner, the late Bobby Hamilton and Bobby Hamilton Jr., and Ron Hornaday Jr. and Ronnie Hornaday have raced each other. Mike Wallace will pilot the No. 48 Chevrolet for Andy Hillenburg. He has 113 series starts with four wins and finished fifth last season in the truck race at Talladega.
