Default Tmcp 213 Nascar Legend Rusty Wallace On The Path To Racing…and His Muscle Cars

In this episode I was given the opportunity to interview NASCAR great Rusty Wallace, who most of us know for his racing skills and his numerous wins, but it turns out he is also a muscle car fanatic as well. In addition, he was the designer of the race track of the Iowa Speedway, a NASCAR facility just 50 miles down to the road from me!
Rusty was in town to promote the Nationwide race occurring at the Iowa Speedway, the 7/8 mile oval track he personally laid out the 3-tiered banking progressions and turns for. It was built roughly 10 years ago, and was most recently acquired by NASCAR (a fairly rare and unheard of thing). It’s also known as “The Fastest Short Track on the Planet!”
Rusty’s latest build is a 1966 El Camino and it was featured on Fox Sports 2 and built by West Coast Customs. This car is almost completely new from the ground up with a Roadster Shop chassis, custom interior, and Baer brakes all around. The engine is a fuel injected 383 crate motor by Edelbrock with 480 horsepower that Rusty says runs “smooth as silk”.
