Tommy Kendall. Tommy Archer. And now Wally Dallenbach, Jr.

Trans-Am is partying like its the 1980s or 1990s, with some of its iconic stars coming back in the series in 2015. Dallenbach Jr. is the latest to return, and will do so in a Chevrolet Camaro for the series’ finale November 15 in Daytona.

He’ll race in the TA2 class. The Camaro is the same brand he raced when he won his second straight series championship in 1986, his third year of competition.

“I’ve enjoyed my time in television but for now that phase of my life is over, and I’m excited to get back behind the wheel and resume my racing career,” Dallenbach said in a series release. “I’m genuinely excited and looking forward to returning to the Trans Am Series at Daytona, and I’m hoping to be racing with them full time come 2015.”

“This is a program I’ve been working on putting together over the past year or so,” he added. “Unfortunately, up until now, my broadcast schedule has prevented me from being able to make a commitment to racing, but now the timing and opportunity is right.”
