Wimmer to Drive for JR Motorsports in Upcoming Races

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- JR Motorsports will try to race the full Nationwide Series schedule with the No. 7 Chevrolet.

The car is the second entry in JRM's organization, and was only scheduled to run 13 races this year with Danica Patrick.

But JRM co-owner Tony Eury Jr. says the team is too good not to be at the track every weekend. The car will go to Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend with Scott Wimmer as the scheduled driver.

Wimmer is also scheduled to drive the car April 3 at Nashville.

Patrick drove the car in the first three Nationwide races of the season. Her next scheduled race is in June at New Hampshire.

JRM also fields the No. 88 for Kelly Bires. That car is scheduled to run the full season.
