Rusty Wallace's youngest son, Steve, also took to Facebook this week to provide an update on his situation.
"I want to thank everyone for their questions about my plans for 2012," Wallace said in his written update. "I'll tell you what, it's definitely hard watching everyone get ready for Daytona -- this time last year we had just qualified for my first Daytona 500 and were getting ready to run both the Nationwide and Cup races.
"I'm definitely planning on being in a race car this year, but want to make sure that it's the right opportunity with a team that's competitive and can win races. I'm very grateful to have had a lot of teams call -- everyone from some of the top Cup-affiliated teams, to Truck Series teams. There are some really great opportunities out there for me if we can put together sponsorship.
"In the meantime, my friend Blake Bainbridge and I are building a couple of really nice Super Late Model cars that we're planning on running for fun this year. You'll see us at a lot of the big races for those cars, like the Snowball Derby and the Winchester 400.
"I'll be in Daytona later this week and am just going to keep working hard to put together the right opportunity for me to race in 2012."
