Will Kimmel Gets 5 Nationwide Races


MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Ingersoll Rand will continue its relationship with TriStar Motorsports, serving as an associate sponsor for the full NASCAR Nationwide Series and a primary backer for five races.

ARCA Racing Series driver and NASCAR rookie Will Kimmel will wheel the No. 44 Ingersoll Rand Toyota in the five primary events beginning March 1 at Phoenix Int’l Raceway.

Kimmel, the nephew of 10-time ARCA Racing Series champion Frank Kimmel, has had an enduring relationship with Ingersoll Rand since 2012.

Kimmel, who races for his family owned team Kimmel Racing, scored seven top five and 19 top-10 finishes across his six year tenure in the ARCA Racing Series.

“We look forward to renewing our partnership with TriStar Motorsports as they take their program to the next level,” said John Evans, President of Power Tools at Ingersoll Rand. “TriStar allows us the opportunity to support rookie drivers and provide them with performance tools that can help them win both on and off the track. We were happy with our partnership last year and look forward to growing our programs together this year.”

“To say I’m excited is an understatement,” exclaimed Kimmel. “I greatly appreciate the opportunity Ingersoll Rand and TriStar Motorsports have presented to me. I look forward to continuing the Kimmel family impression in racing, now in the NASCAR community.”
