Scott Wimmer will enter his second season with Richard Childress Racing in 2008 and run a partial Busch (23 Races) in the #29 Holiday Inn Chevy.  The team has set its sites to repeat the owners championship that it claimed in 2007.  

Wimmer, a Wausau, Wis., native, has found success in every series he has ever competed in.  He carved his mark on the short tracks around Wisconsin throughout the 1990’s and became recognized as a dominant force in racing around the Midwest, winning 17 times and claiming local and regional championships in a late model stock car between 1994 and 1996 before moving to Hooter’s Pro Cup Series.  But, Wimmer really caught the eye of top NASCAR owners after he entered the American Speed Association (ASA) and claimed victories in the first two races he competed in. 

Wimmer tallied up two top five and eight top 10 finishes in his rookie year of the Busch Series that put him 11th in the championship standings.  2002 brought hopes of a Busch Series Championship.  Wimmer posted strong finishes in the early part of the season, but hit his stride during the summer months when he posted four consecutive top-10 finishes in June.  Wimmer scored his first Busch Series career win at the fall Dover race, and in the final seven races of the season posted wins at Memphis, Phoenix and Homestead.  Wimmer finished the season up with four wins, 11 top five and 17 top 10 finishes and a career high third in the championship standings.
