Darrell Wallace Jr. records first East Series win of the season
Darrell Wallace Jr. won the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at Richmond International Raceway and took over the lead in the East Series standings.
Wallace won his first East Series race of the season and the third of his career. It was the first time the East Series visited Richmond International Raceway.
"Coming to this track, no one’s run here except for Coleman Pressley," Wallace said. "He ran the Nationwide race here. I was able to get some practice last week in a late model, me and Max Gresham. We had a little leg up on the other drivers. It was definitely cool to be a part of. We’re trying to make a name for ourselves. I think we’re doing it that so far. We just have to stay with it and be there at the end of the season."
It was the second win a row for Revolution Racing. Teammate Sergio Pena won the East Series race at South Boston Speedway in Virginia.
Wallace has a 26-point lead over Pena.
