I don't think there are enough dominator points to go around to support that strategy. But his Cup gig which came when RPM driver Aric Almirola was injured in a fiery wreck at Kansas come at an opportune time; while NASCAR has pushed Wallace to corporate America, Xfinity sponsorship dried up and he was about to lose his ride. Still, Wallace recovered to finish 26th. "It's nice to be part of this younger group of drivers". Petty, who won 200 NASCAR races, stood by Wallace and offered encouragement. Earnhardt, who swept Pocono in 2015, was already forced to start at the rear of the field. "Patting myself on the back for that. Just couldn't charge any of the corners like I needed to with the stopping power that I had". And to outrun them to win a race here, this is one of the toughest tracks that we go to.
Wallace has tried to fit in as best he could like any other driver making his debut in the middle of the NASCAR season. He served his pass-thru penalty on Lap 22 and sped again. He spent much of the day outside the top 25 and fighting to get back on the lead lap and regain track position.
He was near flawless over those final 10 laps. Kurt Busch, the defending race champion, rounded out the top five in at 177.799 miles per hour. "We live and die by that rule book I guess, so the consequences are there".
"I'm so used to analog tachs and everything, and this digital stuff I've got to figure out".

"I just love getting up close and personal with the drivers". Which is what makes it so frustrating that it just can't come together.
Wallace pitted eight times throughout the course of the race.
Despite Wallace's frustrations, his teammates on the No. 43 Ford, including crew chief Drew Blickensderfer, felt the driver had a great first outing. "That would have been the worst thing we could do". But the hard part he has. You have to have the stubbornness and the racing mentality of you can't just say that we're in. "To work as hard as we do and do what we do without him, it's going to be fun because it is a challenge, but it's also sad at the same time because you have to be without one of your main people". It's just something he hasn't seen before, how it refreshes. "She better get on a plane right now. He's beating himself up for it now, but everybody on the 43 team is pretty pumped up to have him driving our auto".
So far, Wallace has enjoyed a fairly acceptable weekend. But he's looking forward to the opportunity. As a effect, Busch rolled around the 1-mile track on three wheels, eventually limping back to pit road.
"We had a heckuva day", said Truex. "I've been dreaming about this day since I was a little kid".
"Means a lot, coming from you", Benjamin said. These guys are good. "I've been in the ladder rungs for the last couple years and now I'm at the top".
"The caution put us in position to get a great finish out of it, which I thought was really good", Keselowski said post-race. "I kind of got lazy with it".
