Brandon Wimmer – Good Night at Attica Sets Up Two-Race Weekend!
(Bill W) April 22, 2014 – Last Friday night at Attica Raceway Park in Ohio, Brandon Wimmer and the Hammer Motorsports #24H took to the track for their second outing of the season. The tough Attica local field was bolstered by several All Star regulars for a car count in the mid-30’s. It was a successful night for the Fairmount, Indiana driver and his team, coming home sixth at the end of the night. They plan on returning to Attica this Friday night, before hitting Fremont Speedway on Saturday.
Time trials went well in a new process that Attica has implemented. “They have a new format this year for qualifying at Attica,” says Brandon. “You qualify with your heat group by pill draw, three cars at a time. I think it will work well once they get it figured out. We were able to get quick time in our heat. The top four times are inverted in the heat, with the top two finishers making the redraw for the first four rows.”
Schedule Picking Up!
(Bill W) April 16, 2014 – Brandon Wimmer and the Hammer Motorsports #24H led by Randy and Lisa Hammer are starting their 2014 campaign in Ohio. The team began Friday, April 4 at Attica Raceway Park and suffered a tire issue that resulted in a DNF. The next two weeks, they’ll be competing locally in anticipation of the May 2 and 3 arrival of the World of Outlaws at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg.
Brandon explained their issues in the feature at the April 4 All Star show at Attica. “The valve stem core blew out of the tire,” he says. “The tire went flat and we weren’t able to get back out to get it changed. It was kind of a rough start to our season for sure. The first night out didn’t go as planned!”
