A NASCAR Hall of Fame driver will add something extra to this year's World of Outlaws Late Model Series stop at River Cities Speedway.
Rusty Wallace, who won 55 races on the NASCAR Cup series during his career, will serve as the Grand Marshall of the Acme Tool 50 on Friday night at The Bullring.
The Acme Tool 50 will serve as the World of Outlaws Late Model Series annual stop at RCS. The WoOLMS has scheduled one race each season in Grand Forks since 2006.
Wallace will be involved in a couple of race day activities in Grand Forks.
He will sign autographs from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Acme Tools. And he will address the RCS crowd during intermission of the Acme Tools 50.
Wallace ranks eighth all time on the NASCAR Cup Series career win list. He began his career in 1984 and won the NASCAR Rookie of the Year award that season.
During his career, Wallace won at least one NASCAR Cup race for 16 straight seasons, which ranks the third longest in the circuit's history.
He also won the NASCAR series championship in 1989.
In his famous Penske Racing/Miller Lite No. 2, he led nearly 20,000 laps during his career. That ranks him seventh all time.
Wallace retired from racing in 2005.
Rain claimed last season's WoO LMS event at RCS.
In 2015, Tim McCreadie captured late model feature at RCS, holding off Josh Richards and Donny Schatz for the win. Schatz, however, will not be at this season's WoO LMS event since he's racing his sprint car with the World of Outlaws in Ohio.
McCreadie, a New York driver, has won twice at RCS with the Outlaws. The RCS track is one of the smaller tracks the WoO LMS competes at each season, making for unique racing.
"It was a tough race," said McCreadie after the 2015 feature. "The track was pretty aggressive on the cushion. These cars are a handful the way it is and when you get a track like this you'd better drive pretty hard."
Also on July 14, NOSA sprints and Wissota modifieds will compete along with the late models.
Tickets prices will be $30 (reserved) and $28 (general admission).
This week, it will be double features for NOSA sprints at RCS.
