JOSH TIMMERMAN TO COMPETE IN CRA LATE MODEL SPORTSMAN SERIES
24 year-old rising star returns to business this Sunday at Plymouth (IN) Speedway
NOBLESVILLE, IN — Up-and-coming late model driver Josh Timmerman knows a thing or two about making investments. That is why the 2010 Baer Field Speedway Late Model Rookie of the Year traded in his racing suit for a business suit during the 2011 racing season.
As a trusted financial advisor with a growing business, Timmerman relocated from Noblesville, IN to St. Louis last year to enroll in a 10-month growth program enhancing his ability to better serve his current and prospective clients. “While it was tough to give up racing for a season,” Timmerman acknowledged, “the short-term sacrifice to focus on my long-term professional career has been one of the best investments I’ve made. It is my professional career that secures my ability to race in the coming years.”
Now back in his Noblesville office full-time, Timmerman and his dedicated crew are excited to return to a full season of racing. Timmerman will join the Top Speed Fabrication Champion Racing Association (CRA) Late Model Sportsman Series this season to compete for wins and a championship. “We entered the CRA Late Model Sportsman Series in 2009, but two unfortunate crashes put us out for the majority of the season. We bounced back in 2010 with a successful season at Baer Field Speedway in Fort Wayne where we earned Rookie of the Year honors,” said Timmerman. “CRA is by far one of the best sanctioning bodies of racing in the country, and we’re proud to have them in our own backyard where we can compete against top-notch teams.”
With the investment of new parts and a brand new look for 2012, Timmerman is ready to wear the fire suit full time once again and translate his achievements in the financial business to triumph on the race track. The #09 opens the season this Sunday, April 15th in the Third Annual Cabin Fever 150 at Plymouth Speedway. “We’ve always been focused on getting better each and every time we go out on the race track. We’re confident that we’re going to be competitive every week, and soon hope to be the team to beat,” said the determined driver.
