Wagner joins TMR for New Hampshire race Team Moore Racing announced that Firestone Indy Lights race winner Brandon Wagner will drive the #22 TMR-Xtreme Coil Drilling car at the New Hampshire 100 in Loudon, NH on Aug. 14.
Wagner, a veteran of USAC short track racing, has been competing in series since 2009. During the 2010 season he only competed in five races but garnered three top-10 finishes and his first win at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
"I'm very excited about the opportunity to race with Team Moore Racing, they are a great team. I hope to bring them the success I know we're both capable of," Wagner said.
Wagner is the latest driver to fill the seat of the No. 22 car for co-owners Mark Moore and Tom Wood. Victor Garcia scored a win in the car at Barber Motorsports Park before having to leave the team mid-season. Canadians Daniel Morad and Mikael Grenier drove the car at Edmonton and Trois-Rivieres, respectively.
"We're really excited to have Brandon step in the car," Moore said. "This will be an excellent collaboration with Davey Hamilton Racing. They were not scheduled to participate in this event. Brandon Wagner will return to Davey Hamilton Racing with a two-car effort at Kentucky and Las Vegas.
"In the meantime, we had an open seat and are the only team to have tested here. It went very well. It would be a shame for all of our hard work to go to waste. I'm happy to have a race winner in one of our cars, someone who is quite capable of winning this race. (Gustavo Yacaman) did a great job here at the test and following his second place finish in Trois-Rivieres, we feel we have two contenders for the win here."
