Scott Wimmer Finished 10th At The Scotts Turf Builder 300 At Bristol Motor Speedway; Race Was Wimmer's 200th NASCAR Start
Altamonte Springs, FL/March 29, 2010 - Scott Wimmer, one of NASCAR's top talents finished 10th at the Scotts Turf Builder 300 at the Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee. This was Wimmers 200th NASCAR start and he was driving JR Motorsport's No. 7 Chevy Impala that Danica Patrick began the 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series with. That car - currently 30th in owner points - will enter every race this season with Patrick returning to the car in June at New Hampshire. Wimmer led the pack for 21 laps, his most to date at the famed circuit. This was Wimmers first race of the year and it captured the attention of the racing world.
"I am very proud to have had a strong finish at Bristol and score great points for JR Motorsports," said Scott Wimmer. "It is hard to believe that this was my 200th race and that I racing it in the No. 7 Impala. Back when I started my racing career, I was just thankful to get my first Nationwide Series start in Memphis. As a driver you've got to have confidence that you can succeed at this level, but to that point all the stars have to be aligned, too. Everything's really got to fall into place for you to have a career in this sport. I've been very fortunate to be here. It's been a lot of fun and the six wins along the way were amazing."
Wimmer ranked 13th and 14th in a pair of Nationwide practice sessions prior to the start of the race. In driving the No. 7 Chevy Impala the eyes of the racing world were on Wimmer at Bristol. Originally JR Motorsports was only going to enter the No. 7 Chevy Impala in thirteen races but then decided to expand that. P1 Groupe, Wimmer's management company confirmed Wimmer will again drive the No. 7 in Nashville on April 3rd.
