Will Kimmel said the front-end geometry on his No. 69 Kimmel Racing Ford Fusion last year at Salem Speedway wasn't quite right.

"We went back to work on our Salem car..changed the front-end geometry and got it back to where it needs to be," said Kimmel, who tested at Salem over the weekend. It was his second test on the high-banked short track in preparation for Salem's Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200 coming April 30. His career-best ARCA short track finish is second at Salem in 2011.

On loan from Kimmel Racing, third-generation ARCA racer Will Kimmel knows a bargain when he sees one. When the Sellersburg, Indiana driver got the call to drive the No. 22 Cunningham Motorsports Ford in three races this year, he didn’t have to think about. Done deal.

His quest to win in the 22 started last weekend at Madison; however, he struggled with brake issues and finished 10th. He can’t wait to head to Winchester and take a run at turning his luck around. The last time Kimmel lined up for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards race at Winchester, it was only a teaser. "We did a start-and-park last time. Worse part was we were actually really fast without really even trying. We sort of used it as a test session in case we ever got to come back and run hard."

The car that Will Kimmel destroyed last year at Mobile Int’l Speedway is going to live in infamy, or at least until it rusts to the ground.

In fact, you may have already seen the postings on social media, especially after Dale Earnhardt, Jr. sent out the following Tweet, "Latest donation to the racecar junkyard. Thanks @WillKimmel". And on the heels of Earnhardt’s "thanks", the car now rests comfortably among the weeds, twigs and trees in Earnhardt’s private "racecar junkyard".

After wrecking both superspeedway cars in the open test less than a month ago, Kimmel Racing had to go into scramble mode to prepare a car in time for Saturday’s 53rd running of the Lucas Oil 200 Driven By General Tire at Daytona Int’l Speedway.

Today, the Clarksville, Indiana-based team scrambled right to the top of the leader board in final practice Friday morning. Will Kimmel, in the No. 69 E3 Spark Plugs-SO Contracting-SCCY Chevrolet, circled the 2.5-mile superspeedway in 47.543 seconds, for an average speed of 189.302 mph. The speed that Kimmel put up was the exact same speed that rookie Chase Briscoe put up as the fastest speed in practice Thursday. Kimmel’s career-best finish at Daytona was third in 2012. Briscoe, fastest in practice Thursday, was second on the charts at 189.266 mph in the No. 77 Cunningham Motorsports Dodge.-ARCA Racing

Despite racing in just 17 races and having a couple of did not finishes because of accidents, Will Kimmel still managed to finish 11th in the ARCA Racing series points.

Kimmel scored five top 10’s in 2015, but called the season rough. His wreck at Mobile in March gained national attention when his car went off of the track. "We tore up a lot of good race cars from things that were out of our control," he said. "On the upside, the cars were fast and I felt that we were as competitive as Kimmel Racing had been for years." Kimmel also made his NASCAR Sprint Cup debut during 2015 and said he and his father (and team owner Bill Kimmel) are already putting together a solid plan for 2016.-ARCA Racing
