"I am really excited about going to Lowe's for the All-Star race," said Wimmer. "It's a lot of fun to run under the lights and the fans are really excited about the race. It's a race where you don't have to worry about points and you can just have fun and race as hard as you want. We're going there with the intentions of running just as hard as we possibly can and try and learn just as much as we can for the Coke 600. We want to race our way in for the All-Star Challenge, but if we can't we have all the fans out there voting for us. The folks at Caterpillar are all voting and all the Bill Davis Racing fans are voting for us, so we'll hope to get in one way or another.

"We'll have our teammate Dave Blaney there trying to get in too. He will be able to help us out too, just like he has done every week that he has raced. He's a great asset to our team. I wish we could find him a sponsor so he could race with us every week. He definitely deserves a ride out here. We' ll see what we can do to get both Bill Davis Racing cars into the All-Star Challenge."
