Brandon Wimmer – Battling Blaney!
(Bill W) September 17, 2014 – Brandon Wimmer found himself in another duel with Dale Blaney at Fremont Speedway last Friday. Over the course of his career, the “Low Rider” has been a nemesis on many a night. In the end, the Hammer Motorsports #24H team could hold their head high with second and eighth place finishes at the Jim Ford Classic with the All Stars at Fremont Speedway in Ohio. This weekend, the team plans a trip to run with the World of Outlaws at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio.
Things started well in last Friday’s prelim when Brandon timed in sixth quick in the stout field. “We had a good pill draw, which hasn’t been happening all year,” he says. “We were able to get a good lap in, and then transfer through the heat alright (fifth to fourth).”
Brandon Wimmer – Strong Run with All Stars Sets up Fremont!
(Bill W) September 3, 2014 – Brandon Wimmer and the Hammer Motorsports #24H team are turning their attention to Fremont Speedway in Ohio this Saturday night. They will use the weekly show to prepare for the July 12 and 13 “Jim Ford Classic” featuring the All Stars. Last weekend at Attica Raceway Park in Ohio, the Fairmount, Indiana driver recorded a sixth place finish in the finale.
Friday’s prelim at Attica saw Brandon checker 11th after qualifying 15th and running third in his heat. “We qualified all right,” he says. “We really didn’t do a whole lot in either the heat or the feature. We didn’t go forward, but we didn’t go backward either.”
Brandon Wimmer – Atomic Charge!
(Bill W) August 26, 2014 – Brandon Wimmer and Hammer Motorsports #24H team put on a show last Saturday night at Atomic Speedway near Chillicothe, Ohio. In the first Renegade Sprint Series event, the Fairmount, Indiana driver put on a charge, driving from 18th to second in the feature. This weekend finds the team at Attica Raceway Park in Ohio for action with the All Stars.
The charge was necessitated by a mishap in time trials that saw Brandon clock in 20th quick. “The left sideboard collapsed on our first lap of qualifying,” he says. “It’s amazing what that can do to a racecar. It took all the downforce away, and it was ugly.”
That would set Brandon up outside row one for the heat race. “We were able to win it,” he says. “The car was working really well there. That place is one of my favorite tracks. The way the banking is, you can usually use the whole track. It’s a pretty neat place.”
