Have you ever wondered what Rusty Wallace is doing these days? You will know after watching this video! Rusty and Steven Wallace are in here co running @Southern Country Customs building these insane custom Harley Davidson motorcycles. Steven even does all powder coating in house inside this super neat cargo trailer shop addition. We get to see some of Rusty's favorite trophies in his office and hear some about the golden era NASCAR days. In the next video we head down to the former Blue Max Racing building where he has not been since 1991! Big thanks to @Kenny Wallace for helping these videos come together!

    Great to see Rusty and Steven's business thriving. It's obvious they love what they do. Rusty Wallace hasn't aged at all and still irons his jeans. After watching this maybe I can forgive him now for retiring before his time. #legend #bluedeuce

    Another GREAT video! The Wallace brothers (and Rusty's sons,) all seem to have the same really friendly and overall nice attitude - all loving what they do and respectful of it! And again, you two do great interviews, with really interesting questions! Can't wait for the Blue Max episode!! 👍👍🙏🙏

      Except for that time Mike Wallace said Bubba Wallace should be dragged behind a truck?

    Rusty helping Steven build bikes is easier on the budget than owning Steven’s race cars. Glad to see they are doing well.

    Man, Rusty is one helluva Dad. His love and support for his kids is easy to see. Rusty - making absolutely sure that his kids are set and taken care of. Of course, as is always the case, mom's the real reason for all.

    Its good to see Rusty and Steven doing so well with their motorcycle business. Wasn't a fan of Rusty's back in the day but as he progressed through his later career, I respected his achievements and his business knowledge and his leadership in the sport, he knew more about the car setups more than most and he had a hand in a lot of that. Great to see Rusty doing something with his sons, I remember hearing him in an interview in the 2005 Daytona 500 pre-race, that he always wanted to enjoy what Dale Earnhardt didn't get to enjoy which was time with his family in his career after racing and this motorcycle business is their deal to for them to do that.

    As someone who lost their dad when I was 23, seeing a father and son have such a fantastic relationship, makes me miss my pops and the times we had. I'm so happy for them to be able to keep sharing those experiences together. Very heartwarming.

      @Stephen Bowden you too buddy. A good reason to take care of ourselves, so we can share life with our kiddos as long as possible. Sorry for your loss at such a young age

      My dad an I were inseparable we had so much fun together. The crazy thing was him an my step dad were best friends not just in front of me but like back to back them against the world. He was taken from me when I was 12. I see dad's like rusty with his sons an think about how it could have been. So I know the pain is horrible. I still have my step dad an he is awesome it's just different because he works in the mill 7 days a week. Where my dad even took me to the shop or on the tow truck because it was his. Anyway sorry for rambling I'm sorry for your loss an God Bless..

    Again...Mitch and Logan thanks for this vid. Ill be looking for the vid where you visit the old Blue Max shop. I was there when Iron Horse Auctions held a sale. Picked up a variety of pieces but the most interesting thing was...I noticed two charts on a wall (one from 89 and other from 90 season)...had qual motor record, speed notes, etc...also race motor records fin8sh and comments. I figured they were Barry Dodson's charts. Iron Horse had not tagged them and when we got to that room I asked...auctioneer slapped stickers on them and started biddung. I bought them both ( I dont think others knew what they were, many there just hard core racers looking for parts...JD McDuffie was there, Buddy Baker, etc...). Anyway, a friend got me into a press conference before a Dirt ROC special noght at a local track...Rusty, Kenny, Geoff, Harry, etc there...I took them and showed them to Rusty ( he immediately exclained " These are Barry's notes !" ) and offered him them to keep ( thought maybe he would like to have them). He very graciously autographed them a told me to keep them. Ill try to send you pics of them...some great notes...especially from that 89 Cup Championship season. Thanks again !

    Rusty has always been a perfectionist, that's why his office is so clean and the shop. That is one reason his race car was always one of the sharpest, cleanest cars at the track.

    Very cool, I didn't know Rusty is into bikes like this👍 I do understand people loving these bikes but I've always preferred going Stupid Quick/Fast (for WAY cheaper) so I have always bought, built, tuned and raced 'metric bikes'. With that said, I also got to run 7.40s at 176+mph 1/4 mile on a methanol, turbo HD that was only 104cid (25 years ago)...

    Boy, you sure set the hook and reeled me in with this particular upload. Sweet, thanks! That Pro Street at 13:25 lQQked like the bike that I put together. It was stretched and raked a total of 50 degrees with a 330mm rear and fully show polished 130ci El Bruto. Too much to list here.

    Hey Rusty great to see these cool bikes . I worked for a custom paint shop for 14 years til close . So I do know all the hard work that goes in to all those bikes. From Wisconsin 🤘keep the rubber on the road . ✌️😁

    Great video, I'm now a Rusty Wallace fan 🙂 never thought I would ever say that . The process or method of taking a stock bike and customizing IMHO is the way to go. Compare and contrast the Wallace's Southern Country Customs with the now (I believe) defunct Orange County Choppers. The key word in that comparison is Ridability. While SCC is not producing so called "choppers", they're doing again IMHO the better conversion/customization offering a bike you could take and ride anywhere. Could you imagine attempting to ride one of these "anywhere" and how far do you think you could go? -----> irglo.info/from/ls6dn4uUrJK-c5c/fy-lm-h-y.html I have a 2002 Ultra Classic. The 1st thing I changed/added (besides chrome & Screamin Eagle Exhaust)) was a Road Zepplin seat (has adjustable air cushions). If you never rode a HD stock seat for say longer than an hour you know why the term "Iron Butt" was coined. Thanks Mitch. Logan, and to the Wallaces 🙂

      @Stapleton42 Ya, not to mention the future value, the OCC profiled in the link above originally sold for $80K--it was bought for $8k--not a good investment on multiple fronts.

      I agree completely. Their builds are practical and useable. The chopper stuff to me is just goofy looking lol

    Two of my favorite things, Harley Davidson & the Wallace Family. I worked with Mike & after the races, Rusty was very generous with Miller Brewing Company's beer 🍺 This fall I'm getting some dirt time with Brother Kenny. Most people don't realize how good of a racer Rusty was - ASA to Cup. 55 Winston Cup point race wins - 9 from Bristol

  • Rusty Wells

    I'm really proud of Rusty letting Steven take the lead and run with it because all the years that I've known Rusty he always was the guy driving the boat and the thing about Rusty was his way was 99 percent of the time the right way and I mean he would be working on the his car and doing the entire setup form the rear end gear to the engine that's something you don't see in Nascar now a days hell even when Rusty was racing there was just a handful of guys that did that back then!

      Steven came through about the time that it just became too damn expensive to operate a team. He was always a contender to win and fun to watch but, also had a huge target on his back.

  • ChrisTombstone

    This is awesome. Rusty Wallace was my favorite race car driver growing up and I believe he retired way too soon. But it was perfect as that season there was a rookie that I had noticed the previous season in the busch series named Kyle Busch and rather than jump on a bandwagon of an established driver since my favorite was retiring it was perfect and ever since then Kyle Busch has been my favorite.

    Very cool video content! So glad you were able to get together with Rusty Wallace and see what he's been up to since he retired from racing. You & Logan sure do get some great videos put together, there with you both and you know your efforts are appreciated! 🙂😎 That is one nice bike shop that Rusty has put together, some nice rides in there. Not a huge H-D fan myself but it's OK, ain't what brand you ride, it's because you ride.🏍🏍I remember being at Sturgis in 1987, we got to break in the brand new dragstrip there at that time, trashed my back tire but it was a blast doing smoky burnouts! Thank you both for a great video, always look forward to your posts, and saw the other one in the extra channel, great stuff!👍
