Ambrose falls out of Coca-Cola 600 contention
“It’s been the story of our year,” said Ambrose, who came in ranked 18th in the Spring Cup standings. “We put ourselves in great position (to win), but it’s a shame. We’ll look to get them next week.”
Just a few laps earlier, A.J. Allmendinger left the track after a similar issue costing him 36 laps.
This year, drivers will race in 36 events as they’ve done since 2001.
“Personally, I wish the schedule were 32 again,” Wallace said.
Wallace still believes in NASCAR’s popularity. However, he hopes the sports leaders don’t water down the product with too many races.
“I love NASCAR. It’s been good to me, it’s made me a lot of money,” Wallace said. “I think it’s OK for me to give my opinion. I don’t think NASCAR would get upset about that. Maybe take four races off the schedule and increase that demand that means so much.”
Wallace, an ESPN broadcaster, was selected for the 2013 Hall of Fame class Wednesday along with four pioneers of the sport in Leonard Wood, Herb Thomas, Cotton Owens and Buck Baker. The group will be inducted in February.
“It’s going to be slick. These cars are going to be slipping and sliding that should make for a good race,” Wallace said.
