CAT® Footwear and Meijer to Host Scott Wimmer Appearance


During Brooklyn, MI Race Weekend

Rockford, MI – On August 20, Scott Wimmer, driver of the #22/Caterpillar/Bill Davis Racing car, will be signing autographs for fans at the Jackson, Michigan Meijer store, a CAT Footwear retailer.  Wimmer’s fans will also be able to get an up close look at the #22 CAT Racing show car, which will be on display at Meijer on August 19 and 20.   Wimmer will be in Michigan for the GFS Marketplace 400 at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn.

This is the fifth consecutive year that CAT Footwear has had an affiliation with the #22 racing car, and because of Wimmer’s youth and magnetic personality, he has helped them expand their awareness amongst an even broader group of NASCAR enthusiasts.  Representatives from Meijer and CAT Footwear are all very excited about Wimmer’s appearance.  The NEXTEL Cup Series rookie has had an impressive first season, which includes a 3rd place finish at the Daytona 500, and is expected to draw many loyal fans to the Jackson Meijer.
