After his win at Martinsville, Wallace celebrated with members of Scott's family, who live in nearby Danville, Va.

Wallace finished eighth in the point standings last year, his rookie season in trucks. He started this season with a 26th-place finish at Daytona. Wallace was one of 16 drivers involved in a huge crash late in the race. He's hoping to rebound at Martinsville.

"I have the same feeling, if not a better feeling, as I did heading in to the October race at Martinsville last season," Wallace said. "Our season really starts this weekend. We didn't have the finish we wanted at Daytona, but we've regrouped and definitely have confidence on our side as we go back to Martinsville."

Wallace, a former NASCAR Drive for Diversity competitor, racing in the K&N Pro Series East from 2010-11, is in his second year as driver of the No. 54 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports. Kyle Busch won at Daytona. He is not entered in the Martinsville race.

Thirty-seven teams are the preliminary entry list for the Kroger 250.

Series: NASCAR Camping World. Date: Saturday, March 29. Race: Kroger 250. Site: Martinsville Speedway. Track: 0.526-mile oval. Start time: 2:30 p.m. ET. Laps: 250. Miles: 131.5. 2013 Winner: Johnny Sauter. Television: FOX Sports 1. Radio: Motor Racing Network (MRN)/SIRIUS NASCAR Radio.
