From Lebanon, MO to Loudon, NH is the path North Carolina’s Matt Wallace takes to make his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut Saturday July 18th, at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the Lakes Region 200. After finishing second to John Hunter Nemechek at the largest pro-late model race in the Country on July 4th at his “home track” in Lebanon, MO, the owners at JGL Racing asked Matt to come to New Hampshire and drive the number 26 JGL Racing Toyota.
“I am very excited about this opportunity. We had already agreed to run Iowa in August for JGL, so this was a great surprise to all of us. It’s something I have been working towards my whole life. I spent 2 years running a pro late model in Missouri, and I have done some travelling to gain more experience. We won at Speedweeks this year and it was my first time there, so these races are a result of that.” said the third generation racer.
