I’ve met a great number of celebrities over my lifetime, but few as gracious and charismatic as NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace. He’s ranked as one of the top five money winners in NASCAR history, has 55 career victories over sixteen straight seasons and is honored in the “triple crown” of auto racing halls of fame. Rusty is one of America’s greatest race car drivers of all time, and he is always ready to meet fans and lead the charge for great causes. We hit it off immediately and decided to work together to create a ride event that would benefit our favored charities, The NASCAR Foundation and SD Special Olympics – Rapid City Flame, while offering riders a chance to meet some of NASCAR’s most famous faces. So far, the Buffalo Chip has helped to raise over $750,000 for local charities through events such as the Legends Ride and Biker Belles. Rusty and I hope that you will join us for the inaugural “Rusty Wallace Charity Ride” where you will mingle and ride with racing celebrities and support these worthy charities.
