Will Kimmel has made 118 starts in his father's familiar No. 69 Kimmel Racing Ford since 2008. Over that time, Will has racked up 16 top-five finishes and 38 top-ten finishes as well as one General Tire Pole Award at DuQuoin in 2017.

Rumor at the Derby was that MDM was shutting down and so was Wintron? Makes no sense, but that was the talk. Let's hope not because that would sure cut the field down even more, and we don't need that!! Rumors!!
