Last Minute Sponsorship Arrives For Will Kimmel; Kimmel Racing To Race Chicagoland

JOLIET, Illinois (July 18, 2012) - - Even before arriving at Chicagoland Speedway this weekend, Kimmel Racing and driver Will Kimmel (@willkimmel) are excited about their chances for Saturday afternoon’s Ansell ActivArmr® 150 for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards.

The excitement comes from a last minute sponsorship alliance with AccucareTX and Tilted Kilt who have agreed to jump aboard the Kimmel Racing (@kimmel_racing) train for the 12th race of the 2012 season. After having to start and park last weekend at Iowa Speedway, Kimmel Racing will return to full force and look to improve on their stout fifth place run at New Jersey Motorsports Park at the beginning of the month.

Together, the Kimmel Racing team led by father-son duo of Bill and Will Kimmel will look not only for a strong finish in their first mile-and-half race track together this year but look to pull of an impressive feat by putting their No. 68 AccucareTX / Tilted Kilt Ford Fusion in victory circle.

“Words can’t describe the feeling knowing that we’re actually going to be able to race this weekend because of the support of AccucareTX and Tilted Kilt,” said driver Will Kimmel. “We’ve experience our fair share of ups and downs this season – but none of that matters going into the weekend because our focus is solely on going out there and showing what our team is capable of not only for ourselves but for those who believe in us too.”

AccucareTX provides on-site contract rehabilitation services including physical and occupational therapies, speech-language pathology services, and home therapy in a variety in inpatient and outpatient settings.

Despite not having the ability to participate in the open-test session in the “Windy City” a few weeks ago, the Clarksville, Indiana-based team is confident in their ability to get the job done and fight against those who did partake in the opportunity.

“We know what we’re looking for,” offered owner and crew chief Bill Kimmel. “We’re bringing one of the strongest Fords in our fleet and the horsepower from RoushYates should be spectacular and everyone knows that Will is not afraid to get up on the wheel. If you were to say, we’ve raised the bar for ourselves heading into Chicagoland, you would be right. Hopefully, we can go out there on Saturday and have a strong finish and turn these partnerships into something more. Ultimately, without their support, we would not be racing this weekend and we don’t forget that.”

When Kimmel isn’t behind the wheel of the No. 68 AccucareTX / Tilted Kilt Ford Fusion, the Sellersburg, Indiana native is busting his hump with his full service lawn care business which serves several surrounding cities and includes both business and residential clients.
“It keeps me busy, that’s for sure,” Kimmel explained. “From the moment the sun rises until it begins to set it seems like I’m out there hard at it. It’s a lot of work – but it helps out with stuff that we need in the shop. The family’s real supportive so that makes things a lot easier to deal with.”
Kimmel will make his 10th start of the year this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway. Preparing to run start to finish for the sixth time in 2012, the team is search of their third top-five run and fourth top-10 effort overall. Overall, the 24-year old will make his 35th career ARCA start.
Before heading to the track on Friday, the Kimmel Racing team will make a stop at the Tilted Kilt in Joliet, Illinois from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. The Celtic-themed sports bar and restaurant chain is located at 3340 Mall Loop Drive No. 14, Joliet, Illinois 60435.
The Ansell ActivArmr® 150 (100 laps / 150 miles) is the 12th of 20 events on the 2012 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule. The 12th ARCA race at Chicagoland is a two-day show. Practice begins Friday, July 20 with an hour and a half session planned from 6:05 p.m. - 7:35 p.m. Menards pole qualifying presented by Ansell is set for the next morning slated to begin at 9:30 a.m. The event will take the green flag later in the day at 4:00 p.m. The race will be televised live on SPEED with additional coverage including timing and scoring will be available through the ARCA Racing Network (ARN) online at arcaracing.com. All times are local (Central).
