Unlicensed 15 Year Old Tearing Up the Race Tracks

Joe Gibbs Racing signed Darrell Wallace Jr. recently to its developmental driver program, which is unremarkable except that Wallace is only 15 years old. The Mobile, Alabama native isn’t legally allowed to have a license for another year, but that hasn’t stopped him from racing, or seeing him get named Rookie of the Year in the United Auto Racing Association. Wallace finished his season 6th overall in the points standings last year and was also the youngest driver to win a race at Franklin County Speedway.

“Anytime you have an opportunity to add someone like Darrell to your program it’s exciting,” said J.D. Gibbs, President of JGR.

No word as yet if Wallace’s parents are forced to drive in the car with him. But it is true that his mother constantly winces and tries desperately to brake whenever she’s in the car with him.
