Chrissy Wallace (born May 15, 1988)[1] is an American stock car racing driver. She is the daughter of NASCAR driver Mike Wallace, niece of Rusty Wallace and Kenny Wallace, and cousin of Steve Wallace.

Racing career[edit]

At 19 in 2007, Wallace became the first female driver to ever win at Hickory Motor Speedway in North Carolina.[2]

She made her NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut in March 2008 at Martinsville Speedway, finishing 18th in the #03 Toyota for Germain Racing.[3] She raced in six races that season. In 2009, Wallace finished a career best 13th in the Mountain Dew 250 at Talladega Superspeedway in the #08 Chevrolet for SS-Green Light Racing.

In 2010, she made her NASCAR Nationwide Series debut in the DRIVE4COPD 300 at Daytona. Driving the #41 Chevrolet, she started 35th and finished 43rd after crashing on the first lap. Wallace also made the Aaron's 312 at Talladega, finishing 24th in the #0 for JD Motorsports.

In 2011, Wallace became the first woman to win an American Speed Association Late Model track championship at Lebanon/I-44 Speedway,[4] the same track where her father Mike won the championship in 1990.
