Chris Wimmer will be making the drive this weekend from Wisconsin to Nashville, Tennessee to compete in the 25th Annual All-American 400 Weekend. The All-American 400, known as the Super Bowl of Short Track Races, will have special meaning this year to both competitors and race fans as it will be run in memory of the late Adam Petty. This weekends events mark the end of the season at the Music City Motorplex. Wimmer will compete in the 300-lap CRA Super Series event.
Im really excited to be back in Nashville, said Wimmer. This track has family history for me. I raced here with ASA and my Uncle Larry [Detjens] used to race the All-American 400 in the 70s with my dad on his crew. Back then he raced against Mark Martin, Rusty Wallace, and Dick Trickle.
Wimmer returns to the 0.596-mile asphalt track this weekend where he finished ninth in 2001 while running in the ASA Series. The No. 52 Wimmer Racing entry carries associate sponsors Phillys Subs and Gyros and Joe Rader Towing from Wausau, Wisconsin. The team is still in search of primary sponsorship for this event and future events with Chris Wimmer behind the wheel. Interested parties should contact Ron Wimmer firstname.lastname@example.org
