Wallace in Newport on Saturday
Retired NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace knows the importance of restraints in a vehicle. In February, 1993 he went airborne in his Miller Genuine Draft Pontiac during the Daytona 500 International Race of Champions. His car was hit, causing it to spin out of control, then flip several times before landing on the grass at the Daytona International Speedway. Although the race car was severely damaged, Wallace amazingly walked away from the crash. On Saturday, May, 26, Wallace will be at Newport Grammar school from 11 am till 3 pm for Car Seat Safety Day. Car seats will be inspected and replaced if found to be improperly installed or in poor condition. A number of First Responders including Newport Rescue Squad, Wings medical helicopter, Newport Fire Department and the Coke County Sheriff's Department, also will be on site.
