Kenny Wallace recalled Dale Earnhardt's advice to motivate young people

Kenny Wallace is regarded as one of the most influential people in NASCAR history. For years to come, he will be remembered for his excellence and achievements. In 1988, Wallace began his career, which lasted for 25 years. Nowadays, Wallace uses every opportunity to give advice to young drivers who are just about to hit the big stage.

The NASCAR scene is the pinnacle of every driver's career, so becoming a part of it is a dream come true. The huge amount of competition and the numerous drivers, however, make it impossible for many to reach there. Young drivers learned a valuable lesson from Wallace during a speech.

A legendary NASCAR driver recalls Dale Earnhardt's advice. "He (Earnhardt) said, Herman, that’s my nickname, there are thousands of great race car drivers all over the United States, all over the world. And just because you are not NASCAR, doesn’t mean you are not great.

Hold on, some of the greatest race car drivers ever are here. So don’t get a chip on your shoulder ya’ll are good”. - Wallace said.

Kenny Wallace and his advices

Kenny Wallace wanted to motivate young drivers not to get discouraged if they don't get a chance.

“Just because you didn’t make it to NASCAR, doesn’t mean you’re lesser, you guys are incredible. I raced 70 to 80 races in a year and I get my a** waxed on a daily basis. And every time I pull into that suit and I run a guy, I’m like, that’s the guy, that’s the guy that Dale Sr was talking about”.

There is no need for them to be discouraged by the fact that they will not be a part of NASCAR. It is likely that drivers will be presented with many opportunities in their careers they can equally take advantage of. Having an interesting life can be an enjoyable experience, but sometimes success is a combination of luck, talent, and hard work.
