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.”
Brandon Wimmer – Going Forward at Fremont!
(Bill W) May 29, 2014 – Brandon Wimmer and the Hammer Motorsports #24H team continue getting better every time they hit the track in 2014. Last weekend, they competed with the All Stars at Fremont Speedway Saturday and Sunday. After moving up five spots in Saturday’s feature, the Fairmount, Indiana driver came home a strong sixth in Sunday’s finale amongst a stout 35-car field. The team is hoping their momentum continues with the World of Outlaws at Attica Raceway Park in Ohio Friday night.
Brandon’s weekend in Fremont, Ohio started with 23rd quick on Saturday. “Going out with a late pill killed us on Saturday,” he says. “We qualified towards the end. We had the fastest car of the last ten qualifiers other than Tim Shaffer. We were pretty good for when we went out.”
