Rusty Wallace, NASCAR Hall of Famer, champion and philanthropist, has been awarded the 2023 Buddy Shuman Award, NASCAR announced Friday.

Wallace, inducted into the Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2013, has served on the board of The NASCAR Foundation since 2006.

Additionally, Wallace has overseen the Buffalo Chip‘s Rusty Wallace Charity Ride since 2019. Last year marked the fifth edition of the motorcycle ride, a featured addition of the famed Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota.

The now-annual ride benefits The NASCAR Foundation and the Rapid City (SD) Special Olympics, which evenly split the proceeds. The 2023 edition was the most productive yet with more than $160,000 raised.
