Lofton Looking to Turn Season Around This Weekend at Pocono

Denver, N.C. (June 3, 3008) -- Justin Lofton and the No. 20 Lofton Cattle team are poised to head to Pocono, Pennsylvania this weekend for the running of the Pocono 200. The Eddie Sharp Racing rookie is looking to bounce back from a disappointing start to the 2008 season. Lofton and his team have taken advantage of the two weeks off and are fully recharged and focused to get back racing.

"Eddie Sharp Racing has had a lot of success at Pocono and I am hoping to take full advantage of the notes and knowledge the organization has to offer," said Lofton. "I feel good about our chances this weekend, my team gives me great cars every week and I need to bring them home the finishes they deserve."

Lofton added that "I have been looking forward to this race all season, we are taking one of my favorite cars and I am ready to get after it."

"We have had some dumb luck and it has really taken me by surprise," said Lofton, while helping the team prepare for the weekend. "I am really glad we had a few weeks off but I am itching to get back in the seat. I have been racing on my computer non-stop trying to prepare myself, I have been going to the gym and I really feel I am more mentally & physically prepared."

Last season Eddie Sharp Racing was able to bring home a win at Pocono Raceway with driver Michael McDowell and they are looking to bring a win home again this year. Look for all three of the ESR cars to be contending for the win.
