Chris Set To Drive Craftsman Truck For Limited Schedule
2004. Chris comes from a racing family following the career path of his late uncle Larry Detjens and older brother Scott Wimmer, driver of Bill Davis’s #22 Nextel Cup car. Chris will assist the team at Daytona and Atlanta as he patiently waits for his NASCAR debut at Martinsville, Virginia on April 17th.
“This is an awesome opportunity to drive the MB Motorsports #63 Truck,” commented Chris Wimmer. “This team has been in the Truck Series a long time and know how to help a rookie driver succeed. It will be tough watching someone else drive the first two races, but we’ll be ready to go at Martinsville.”
Chris began racing at the young age of 6, finishing 4th in the National Sanctioned WOR 3-Wheeler Championship. During his high school days, Chris helped build Late Model Stock Cars and also crewed for his older brother Scott. When he turned 16, Chris jumped behind the wheel and started his own
driving career accumulating 16 Late Model wins in 3 years. Chris ran the very competitive ASA Series in 2001, ‘02, & ‘03 gathering 1 win, 2 pole positions, and finished 41% of the time in the top-10.
“We are very pleased to have Chris Wimmer join our team,” stated owner & crew chief, Mike Mittler. “Chris is one of the young talented drivers we have been watching for a year or two. We plan to run Daytona and Atlanta with a veteran driver, but Chris will be working with us to be ready for his first NASCAR race at Martinsville. It will be an exciting 2004.”
MB Motorsports is actively seeking primary marketing partners to share the value of the exciting 2004 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season – call 800/467/2464 or email at email@example.com.
MB Motorsports will participate in the NASCAR Daytona Test on Saturday, Sunday, & Monday, January 10 –12. Veteran driver Stan Boyd will drive the #63 Ford Truck and assist in fine-tuning the new F-150 Ford body style.
Chris will drive the #63 MB Motorsports entry in a limited role in 2004 unless sponsorship can be found for the team. (MB Motorsports)
