Driver Wallace Jr. makes a pit stop at Laurel Park
By PAUL COLLINS - Bulletin Staff Writer
A little more than a week before Darrell Wallace Jr. will try to win the Kroger 200 at Martinsville Speedway for the second consecutive year, he visited Laurel Park Middle School to talk about racing — and answer plenty of students’ questions.
Wallace, who turned 21 earlier this month, told the students Wednesday that he has driven as fast as 213 mph and knows how hot it can get inside a race vehicle: more than 150 degrees, he said. Answering another question, he indicated that as a driver, he can’t just call a timeout if he needs to go to the rest room during a race. If he didn’t go before the race, “adrenaline takes over” and he gets over the call to go to the bathroom, he said.
Partnership-In-Excellence Grant Applications Now Being Accepted
The Martinsville-Henry County Chamber of Commerce is partnering with CGI Communications to develop
videos that will introduce viewers to various aspects of life in our community. Over the next few weeks,
CGI Communications representatives will be contacting our Chamber members to get involved with this initiative.
This is a great opportunity to be a part of a community-minded program, while also allowing our members to
receive their own personalized, professionally-produced video to add to their own websites.
"I enjoy our Chamber membership and find it a great way to meet other business people in the community."
