Wimmer to drive No. 7 car in Cup race

July 17, 2011

Scott Wimmer will drive the No. 7 Dodge in Sunday’s Lenox Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Wimmer practiced and qualified the car this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for team owner/driver Robby Gordon. Gordon was competing in the Bullrun Live Rally, which kicked off in Las Vegas on July 9 and ended Saturday in Miami.

The Bullrun is an invitation-only event, and Gordon received one of the 100 spots. He piloted a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 and won a second-place Navigator Award. He also won the Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire in 2001.

Wimmer will roll off 42nd on Sunday. In seven career starts at New Hampshire, his best finish is 18th.
