Rust Wallace is one of the pit studio reporters for ESPN a position he has held since he retired from NASCAR in 2005. 

Wallace won the championship in what is the now the NASCAR Sprint cup series in 1989 by a narrow margin over Dale Earnhardt. Throughout his carreer Wallace won 55 races in the cup series.  
Wallace owns a team that competes in the second tier Nationwide serias. And Iowa Speedway was designed in its entirety by Wallace.

Wallace has called races for ESPN in all forms of motorsports. In 2006 Wallace rose to national fame after he blurted out at the checkered flag of the Indianapolis 500 that it had been the greatest Daytona 500 he had ever seen.

Wallace did survive several accidents that many though should have been fatal throughout his carreer.
