Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad will make famed NASCAR driver Rusty Wallace an "honorary Iowan" during a ceremony at the state Capitol.

Branstad is set to give a proclamation to Wallace on Wednesday afternoon. He will honor Wallace's contribution to race car driving and his role in developing the Iowa Speedway.

Wallace has had 55 NASCAR Cup wins and won the 1989 championship. He was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame earlier this month. Since retiring in 2005 he has worked to promote NASCAR and been an analyst on ESPN.

Wallace is a designer and part-owner of the Iowa Speedway, which opened in 2006 in Newton.
