One day is now.
The 20-year-old Wallace, a daughter and niece in the popular Wallace family of racers, is set to make her NASCAR debut March 29 in the Craftsman Truck Series Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway.
Tapped to drive for a championship-caliber team, Wallace said she will drive five Truck races and five ARCA races for Germain Racing, which also fields trucks for drivers Todd Bodine and Justin Marks.
On top of that, Wallace will continue racing Late Model events around the Carolina tracks where she has found Victory Lane four times and was named most popular driver at Hickory Speedway, making her the first female to win in a Late Model stock car at the track in its 57-year history.
Preparing to leave this week for the upcoming Truck test at Martinsville, Wallace said talks to join the Germain family and Toyota began at the end of last season. However, her young-but-tough heart was guarded.
Wallace knows she is competing in a male-dominated sport where in recent years there has been public opposition to females racing on the track. Not only that, she’s grown accustomed to empty promises; opportunities have been served only to be taken away days later.
“But I knew with the Germain family, they stick by their word … if they say they are going to do something they do it,” Wallace said.
More than that, she trusts the same family the employees her father, Nationwide Series driver Mike Wallace, who pilots the No. 7 Camry. The venture will make Mike and Chrissy the first father-daughter duo racing for the same team in NASCAR.
