Late Show With Rusty

NEW YORK - Former NASCAR racing champion Rusty Wallace is scheduled to be a featured guest on Tuesday's (Dec. 21) edition of CBS's Late Show with David Letterman.

Wallace, the 1989 NASCAR champ and 55-race winner, announced last August that the 2005 NASCAR Nextel Cup season would be his last as a driver. A season-long celebration of his illustrious career is planned and the popular driver's final tour behind the wheel of his Miller Lite Dodge has been dubbed "Rusty's Last Call."

"Even though we're not officially into the 2005 season just yet, we're looking at this appearance on Dave's show as our kickoff for the big year ahead," said Wallace, 48, of Letterman's popular late night show that first aired on August 30, 1993 and has since garnered eight Emmy Awards and 39 Emmy nominations. "David Letterman is known as a big racing enthusiast and we're really looking forward to being a guest on his show. He is a part owner of an IRL team with Bobby Rahal and we're hoping to be able to shed a little light on NASCAR racing during our visit. It could be a wild night and it could be very unpredictable. But one thing is for sure and that's the fact that we're going to have a ton of fun while we're there."

Joining Wallace as a guest on Tuesday's Late Show will be awardwinning actor Dennis Quaid, known for his diverse acting roles in films such as "The Big Easy," "Far From Heaven," "The Right Stuff" and "Any Given Sunday."

Also included on the bill with Letterman will be The Calling, the popular Los Angeles rock quintet featuring lead singer Alex Band.

Tuesday's Late Show with David Letterman is set to air at 11:30 p.m. (ET) on CBS-TV.
