“About time,” Wallace said, via NASCAR.com. “It took me five years to get my first poll. The 23 XI, everyone in the No. 23 squad is a testament to that.

“They’ve been doing a tremendous job all year, really. We haven’t had the finish we deserve, but everyone’s proud that they’re going to hang on. There’s been a lot of adversity on this team and we’re ready to fight. .”
