Rusty Wallace, the legendary and now retired racecar driver, brought personality and charisma to the sport of auto racing that is unmatched in the history of the sport. A 55 time race winner and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, he is one of the greatest racecar drivers in America.

When Rusty retired in 2005, he ranked as one of the top five earners in NASCAR's history, making nearly $50 million during his career. He has the third longest winning streak in racing history, winning at least one race in NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series for 16 seasons in a row.

Rusty is a member of several halls of fame including National Motorsports Press Association Hall of Fame, NASCAR Hall of Fame, and the International Motorsports Hall of Fame. He is one of only 20 people to achieve America's racing halls of fame "triple crown" distinction. Rusty's firsthand experience with the world of racing has earned him acknowledgment as one of the world's top authorities on NASCAR racing. He became the first driver in history to design a pro racing facility, The Iowa Speedway.

Rusty is permanently honored at nine NASCAR tracks, and more than a dozen city, state, and county seats of government have declared race day as an official Rusty Wallace Day. Rusty is also the prime stakeholder of The Rusty Wallace Automotive Group in Tennessee.

As a board member for The NASCAR Foundation—an organization that helps children play, learn and live—Rusty oversees the foundation's development committee.
