Darrell Wallace Jr gets an extension
In what has to be the biggest show of faith a team owner could show in his young developing driver, Petty signed Darrell Wallace Jr to another season with RPM. Not only does that give Wallace more job security going forward, the inspired confidence could also lead to an uptick in performance!
Think about it! Wallace Jr now knows that his car owner believes in him, which is a huge vote of confidence for the young kid. He also has had a few good finishes this season, which could be a sign of things to come if RPM can get running on all cylinders. Who knows! Maybe he’ll parlay the deal into something else, or maybe he won’t, but at least he has a chance to!
