Goess and the No. 81 Greenville Toyota of N.C. Eddie Sharp Racing Toyota head to first dirt track race of the season at the Illinois State Fairgrounds on Sunday, August 22. Goess, coming off an eighth-place finish at the road course of New Jersey Motorsports Park, looks to continue his streak of seven consecutive top-10 finishes, marking his 10th top-10 of the 13 races so far this season.

In the Points: Goess moved down one position in the ARCA Racing Series point standings to second-place behind Frank Kimmel, who finished fourth at NJMP. Goess is only 10 points out of the first-place position with seven races remaining in the 2010 ARCA Racing Series schedule.

Goess on running the dirt track at Illinois State Fairgrounds: "Last season, we didn't have the best of luck at the dirt tracks. The race at the Illinois State Fairgrounds was my first race ever on a dirt track. I'm going back to the dirt tracks with more experience in the series, and I'm really looking forward to it. Coming off the road course race in New Jersey, it really shows how diverse the tracks are that we compete at throughout one season. That is what makes the ARCA Racing Series unique."
