Busy Race weekend for Will

Posted: Sunday, July 10, 2011 by WKR in

What a busy race weekend for Will and Will Kimmel Racing! Although the finish in the Nationwide debut was not as Will had hoped, he qualified 15th out of 45 cars and it was a valuable experience. Special thanks to Go Green Racing team, Crosley Radio, Clarksville Schwinn and Roush Yates.

After the Nationwide race, Will headed to Berlin for the ARCA race to start and park the WKR Ford. We have several people ask why Will does start/park in the ARCA races. At this time, Will does not have sponsors for some of these races. However, it does give Will seat time and experience at several different tracks. Will is scheduled to compete in the following ARCA races: Pocono Raceway, Springfield State Fairgrounds (dirt), DuQuoin State Fairgrounds (dirt) and Salem Speedway.

Will and the WKR team were at Salem today to resume the Firecracker 200 that was rained out on July 3rd on the 53rd lap. Will lead 173 laps, until he blew a tire and broke hub which ended his day.

We would like to thank everyone from team members, family, friends and fan for all their support of Will and Will Kimmel Racing.

Been helping Frank at the shop get ready for Daytona. Frank tested there in January on the new surface and was disappointed. We came home and the last 2 weeks have built another car for Frank to take to Daytona for ARCA opener in 2011.

Frank's car dynoed very well and had good wind tunnel numbers so we are very optimistic about our chances at Daytona.

WKR has purchased two cars from Robbie Gordon Motorsports that we hope to race later on in the 2011 season. More on these cars coming soon.

WKR will also have 3 cars on display at the Carl Casper Car Show on February 25-27 at Kentucky Fair and Expo Center. Please stop by and see us! Will's new ARCA car shown above waiting for decals.

WKR would also like to welcome new associate sponsor for the 2011 season- Hidden Creek Golf Club located in Sellersburg, Indiana. Ask Will about discounted coupons available at the car show.
