Return to Salem Speedway for the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200

MOORESVILLE, NC (April 6, 2010)-Southern Indiana's Salem Speedway is a treacherous track that is tough on equipment and tough on drivers. However, Tim George, Jr. is no rookie at the historic short track and heads into Sunday's Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA 200 presented by Appliancezone.com with experience in his back pocket and the checkered flag in his sights.

George and the No. 31 Richard Childress Racing (RCR) Development Chevrolet takes to the .555-mile Southern Indiana oval on Sunday, April 11, 2010 for the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200 presented by ApplianceZone.com, the third race of the 2010 ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards.

While George has had strong qualifying efforts in his past two performances at the historic Salem Speedway, his bout of bad luck has overshadowed the overall performance. In last year's spring event, George started 12th but, after a well-fought effort, an accident resulted in a 24th-place finish.

"I'm excited to race at the first short track of the ARCA schedule," said George, who will enter the Salem event eighth in points. "This will be my third time at Salem, but the first time at a short track in a RCR car. I'm looking forward to putting that Chevy power down with my guys who have been hard at work, because we have a busy next three weeks on the racing calendar."

Some of the ARCA Racing Series' most legendary drivers have won at Salem, including Iggy Katona, Jack Bowsher, Bobby Allison, Bob Keselowski, Tracie Leslie and Frank Kimmel. George is looking to add his name to the Salem Speedway winner's list. After all, it has been said that "if a man goes fast at Salem, he can go fast anywhere.".
