Bio

Darrell Wallace Jr is an American stock car racing driver. He currently competes full-time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, driving the #43 Chevrolet for Richard Petty Motorsports.

After being named the 2008 UARA-Stars Rookie of the Year and the 2010 K&N Pro Series East Rookie of the Year, Wallace was named a developmental driver for Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), which saw him run full-time in the NASCAR Truck Series for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) and running select races for JGR in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. He won five times with KBM and placed third in the final standings in 2014.

Without a ride for 2015, Wallace jumped to Roush Fenway Racing to run full-time in the Xfinity Series. That union lasted until the middle of the 2017 season, when the team was forced to close after lack of sponsorship. When Aric Almirola was injured at Kansas that year, Wallace stepped in as a substitute driver for Richard Petty Motorsports, which led to being signed for the 2018 season.
