Brandon Wimmer – Butler up Next!
(Bill W) August 14, 2014 – Brandon Wimmer and the Hammer Motorsports #24H will be competing this weekend in Butler, Michigan with the All Stars. Last week, the team just kept getting better as the week went on at the 54th Annual Knoxville Nationals in Iowa. Saturday started with a top ten finish in the afternoon program, and ended one spot out of a transfer to the C in the finale.
The team’s plans to get some laps earlier in the season had washed out, so their first look at Knoxville in 2014 was at the “Capitani Classic” a week ago Sunday. Arguably, the toughest one-day show in the country, saw the Fairmount, Indiana driver join 47 other cars in missing the feature. “There were seventy cars or something, and we just hadn’t had any laps at the track,” says Brandon. “We didn’t qualify well, and that put us a little behind all week.”
Brandon Wimmer – Month of Money Starts Tonight!
(Bill W) July 9, 2014 – Brandon Wimmer and the Hammer Motorsports #24H team will start the month of money tonight at Limaland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio with the Brad Doty Classic tonight. This week also brings the King’s Royal at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio on Saturday. The Fairmount, Indiana driver just finished up Ohio Speedweek. That was highlighted by a pair of charges at Atomic Speedway near Chillicothe and at Limaland. The team also picked up a sixth place finish at the Bob Reynolds Memorial last Thursday at Waynesfield Raceway Park.
Rain plagued Ohio Speedweek a bit, but six shows were run. Brandon and the team suffered from some bad qualifying draws. “We were going forward all week,” he says. “We passed a lot of cars. We just put ourselves in a hole qualifying about every night. We couldn’t get a good draw in.”
Brandon Wimmer – Fremont Finish Lends Momentum for Ohio Speedweek!
(Bill W) June 18, 2014 – Frustration had set in for Brandon Wimmer and the Hammer Motorsports #24H team after a pile-up ended their Friday night at Attica Raceway Park in Ohio before things even got started. Fortunately, Saturday was a new day at Fremont, and the Fairmount, Indiana driver posted quick time and a fourth place finish in the feature. That bodes well for a team that will be running Ohio Speedweek, which this year features nine races in nine nights starting Friday!
Things had gotten off to a decent start at Attica, as Brandon would start outside row five for the main event. Unfortunately, things came to an end with one lap in the books. “Someone drove over Craig Mintz in front of us, and I slowed down to avoid it,” says Brandon. “The guy behind me didn’t see it and drove over me. It tore up the car pretty good.”
