Darrell Wallace Jr. will be making his return to NASCAR competition this weekend at Michigan International Speedway in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competition.

Wallace will drive the No. 99. MDM Motorsports entry in Saturday’s LTI Printing 200 with sponsorship from Maestro’s Classic, a company that specializes in beard care products.

Wallace is no stranger to the Truck series. He competed in the series full-time in 2013 and 2014. Over those two years, He collected five wins, 14 top-fives, 26 top-10’s, and three poles. Wallace has since competed in the NASCAR XFINITY Series until Pocono earlier this year when the No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing entry suspended operations.

Despite having a suspended operations in the XFINITY Series, Wallace filled in for then injured Aric Almirola in the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford for four races.

Since then, Wallace has been actively searching for a ride. In a Facebook Live video on NASCAR’s page, Wallace admitted that plans for 2018 are still a “work in progress.”

“It is Michigan right now. We are figuring out some other opportunities that we can do. For now, a one-race deal,” said Wallace on Facebook Live.

Wallace also mentioned that MDM Motorsports still has some open race weekends, but nothing was set in stone.
