Lot #697.1 - Take home this piece of NASCAR history today. This 2003 Victory Vegas motorcycle with just 1,005 miles since built, is from NASCAR legend Rusty Wallace's private collection. This bike was given a custom new paint scheme in 2009 for Rusty's roast, a special event held at Iowa Speedway to commemorate the first ever NASCAR Nationwide Series race at the Speedway and honor NASCAR champion Rusty Wallace. At the event, one attendee bid a large sum for NASCAR President Mike Helton to drive this bike around the speedway to start the race. Helton accepted the challenge and his now famous ride around the speedway was shown during the pre-race show on ESPN.
