Rusty Wallace Racing Incorporated is a
NASCARracing team based in Mooresville, North Carolina, which is near Charlotte. The team is owned by former NASCAR champion and commentator Rusty Wallace.
RWI Racing fields the #66 car in the
Nationwide Series, both sharing sponsorship being Atreus Homesand Jimmy Johns. Currently, the 64 is driven by former Sprint Cup driver David Stremme, and the 66 by Wallace's son Steve. RWI also fields African Americandevelopment driver Chase Austin.
The team made a manufacturer switch to
Chevroletin 2008 after running Dodges its first four full seasons.
RWI was founded in
1984as Rusty Wallace's marketing firm. RWI as a race team launched in 2004 with Billy Parkeras the driver of the #66 Dodge Intrepidin NASCAR's Nationwide Series, with primary sponsor Duraflame. Parker was scheduled to drive in 17 races, however, after finishing only 4 of 8 races he was released. He was replaced by Jamie McMurray, who won the team's first pole on July 24, 2004at New Hampshire International Speedwayand later won the team's first race at Darlington Racewayon November 13, 2004.
In 2005, RWI ran a full 35 race schedule in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. At the request of Duraflame, who switched to sponsor another team, the Dodge Charger was renumbered #64. McMurray shared driving duties with Wallace's former
Penske Racing Southteammate Jeremy Mayfieldand team owner Rusty Wallace. There were three primary sponsors for the #64 car: Miller High Life Light for Mayfield's 13 races; Top-Flite Golf for McMurray's 16 races; and Bell Helicopters and Miller High Life Light for Rusty's 6 races. A second car, #61, was entered with driver Steve Wallace, Rusty's youngest son, at Memphis Motorsports Parkon October 23, 2005.
In 2006, McMurray and Steve continued to split driver duties in the #64 Dodge Charger.Top-Flite Golf remained the primary sponsor during McMurray's 20 races, while the
Jackson Roscoe Foundationwas primary sponsor for most of Steve's 17 races. The team's second car, #61, was driven twice in 2006, both times with Steve at the wheel.
2006 also saw RWI field the #61 Dodge in 9
ARCA RE/MAX Seriesraces, with primary sponsors Nu South Lemonadeand Hantz Group. Steve Wallace won 3 races (Kentucky, Chicagoland, and Iowa) and David Stremmewon the race at Michigan International Speedwayon June 16, 2006by a lap. In 2007, Steve Wallace was named the full-time driver of the newly-renumbered 66, with Homelife Communitiesbecoming a primary sponsor. Wallace won two poles but finished 19th in points.
The 2008 season will see major changes to the organization. While Steven will again campaign for the Nationwide Series title, RWI will also run the #64 full time, going for the owner's championship, with former
NEXTEL Cupdriver David Stremmeand Max Papissharing the driving duties. The team will also switch manufacturers to Chevrolet. Chase Austinremained onboard as a development driver until September of that season.
