Tim George Jr. returns to his Road Racing Roots at New Jersey Motorsports
Mooresville, N.C. (August 13, 2010)-This weekend's event at New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP) marks the second visit to a road course for the ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards Series this season, and the road racing run couldn't have come at a better time for Tim George Jr. Though the Garden State ARCA 150 presented by American Red Cross will mark his second run in a stock car on the road course at NJMP, his past success at the track proves George as one of the top contenders. For Sunday's 150-mile/67-lap event, George will be behind the wheel of the No.31 Richard Childress Racing Development Chevrolet for RCR.
The now second year full-time ARCA Racing Series veteran, George knows his way around the New Jersey road course. With a background in road racing, he competed at New Jersey Motorsports Park in 2008 while in the Grand-Am Rolex GT Series, and took home the victory with then teammate Andy Lally.
"New Jersey Motorsports Park is a great place," said George. "I competed in one of the first races there with the Rolex Series, where our team won in 2008. Last year, the ARCA Racing Series race was good as well, and I came home fifth. After the rain at West Palm Beach this year, I'm hoping to have a good shot at a road course win."
Not only is New Jersey Motorsports Park the site of the 2008 Grand Am Rolex GT Series Rookie of the Year's first victory, but it also the New York native's home track.
Though disappointed with the past few ARCA Racing Series finishes, George can reflect on the season positively. To date this season, he has scored career-best finishes, but this weekend the 29-year-old heads to New Jersey with confidence.
Fans attending the New Jersey Motorsports Park race can meet the RCR development driver before the start of the Garden State ARCA 150. Fans will have a half hour to attend the ARCA Racing Series Driver Autograph Session on Sunday, August 14 at 11:45 a.m. EST.
