“We are very pleased to have been signed by Scott Wimmer as his professional management company and intend to provide him the management to take him to the top of the NASCAR circuit,” said Eric Burch, President of P1 Groupe.  “Scott is already known to thousands of fans and we intend to manage Scott’s brand that over time, to fans and non-fans alike Scott Wimmer is synonymous with NASCAR.”

“I am excited to start working with P1 Groupe.  It has been a struggle the last few seasons to find a competitive ride and sponsorship needed to go with it,” said Scott Wimmer.  “I am hoping to build a lasting relationship with Eric and his team and feel confident that they have the resources needed to get me back to where I belong- being competitive and racing towards a championship.”

“Even with an owner's championship and wins under my belt I have not been able to find the stability and lasting relationship I have wanted with a team,” continued Wimmer.  “I have finished in the top 20 in driver's points the past three seasons without running a full schedule and for this reason I want to get back to running a full schedule to become a contender for the championship.”

Scott Wimmer originally hails from Wausau, Wisconsin.  He carved his mark on the short tracks in the Midwest throughout the 1990’s and became recognized as the dominant force in racing throughout the Midwest.  Wimmer captured 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.  In the 2007 season, Wimmer (along with teammate Jeff Burton) won the NASCAR Busch Series season owner points championship for Richard Childress Racing. The duo finished 3rd in the NASCAR Nationwide Series standings in 2008, while Wimmer posted his 6th career NASCAR win.  In 2009, Wimmer ran races for Curtis Key Sr. and Key Motorsports as well as Dale Earnhardt Jr., and JR Motorsports.  He resides in North Carolina with his wife, Jody and son, Hayden.
