Wimmer on Daytona: Scott Wimmer, driver of the No. 23 YJ Stinger/ Stacker 2 Chevrolet, sat on the outside pole for last years night race at Daytona.
Survival is the name of the game at Daytona, said Wimmer. Obviously, you need a car that is superior aerodynamically and has horsepower, but bottom line, you wont win if you dont survive first. Everyone knows superspeedway races bring out the big wrecks more often than not, so you have to miss that to be a factor at the end. Ive been fortunate at Daytona in the past for the most part. Ive been able to dodge the bullet during each race Ive been in there except for last years July race, where I got caught up in The Big One. Weve got a good car for this weeks race, so hopefully we can keep it up front and miss the wreck when it happens. Im also looking forward to running this race at night. Racing at Daytona is always prestigious, but this is the only time we have superspeedway racing at night, which makes it even more special. I know it is exciting for the teams and I can only imagine what the fans experience. It has got to be very cool to watch it from the stands.
New Paint Scheme: Wimmer and Winston Cup teammate, Kenny Wallace will sport new paint schemes this weekend at Daytona featuring YJ Stinger, Stacker 2s new lightly carbonated energy drink. The drink comes in three flavors: Pounding Punch, Sinful Citrus and Enraged Raspberry. Wimmers paint scheme features the Sinful Citrus flavor, so his car will be green, while Wallaces car is red to promote the Enraged Raspberry flavor.
