Craig Goess ARCA Racing Series Advance: New Jersey Motorsports Park

Craig Goess assumed the lead of the ARCA Racing Series point standings last week with his six consecutive top-10 finish, adding to his nine this season.

This week, Goess and the No. 81 Greenville Toyota of NC Eddie Sharp Racing Toyota look to continue the trek to the championship at the New Jersey Motorsports Park road course. The track, located in Millville, N.J., is located 35 miles south of Goess' birthplace in Woodbury, N.J.

Goess at New Jersey: In Goess' only start at New Jersey Motorsports Park in 2009, he finished in the 10th position. Misty conditions, along with miscues on pit road, put Goess a lap down, but he was able to compete for a top-10 position.

Rain or Shine: The No. 81 and the rest of the ARCA Racing Series field will race Sunday afternoon rain or shine. The teams will use the Hoosier Tires treaded "wet" tire if the track becomes slick. In the first road-course race this season at Palm Beach International Raceway, the "wet" tire was used during the rain-soaked race. The race at PBIR marked the first time in ARCA Racing Series history that a race continued under rain.

In the Points: Goess moved into the first-place position in the ARCA Racing Series point standings with a ninth-place finish at Berlin Raceway. He now leads nine-time champion Frank Kimmel by 10 points, with seven races left in the ARCA Racing Series schedule.

Meet Craig Goess: Goess will participate in the ARCA Racing Series autograph session Sunday. Fans have the opportunity to meet Goess and the rest of the ARCA Racing Series drivers from 11:45 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. on the track. For more information, go to www.ARCARacing.com.

Goess on running at NJMP:

"We are going to head to New Jersey Motorsports Park like we do for every other race. I'm going to go out there and try to have fun at the road course. Hopefully, we won't beat ourselves, like running off the track. I'm looking forward to having a better performance than we did at the last road course race this season at Palm Beach International Raceway."
