JAMES RIVER, NS (February 19, 2019) – Kenny Wallace, former NASCAR driver and television broadcaster, is returning to Riverside International Speedway on July 20 for the IWK 250 Presented by Steve Lewis to defend his win last year.
“I had the time of my life last year,” said Wallace.”The whole weekend was an incredible experience. Besides being a great event, it does good things for the IWK children’s hospital; being able to spend time with them was an honor. And the fans were extremely good to me. We had a great car and a great crew. I loved the tailgate party; it was fun to party with the fans.”
