George Earns Career's Best Finish in ARCA 250

Mooresville, N.C. (April 27, 2010)-Tim George Jr. capped off a great weekend at Talladega Superspeedway with an ARCA Racing Series career-best finish. The Richard Childress Racing development driver collected an ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards career-best third place in the Talladega ARCA 250, as well as accomplished his best ARCA Racing Series qualifying position to date.

The 29-year-old made his 27th career ARCA Racing Series start in the fourth position at the superspeedway. George was the 12th competitor to attempt the restrictor-plate track and posted a lap of 51.514 seconds at 185.891 MPH. His previous best qualifying effort was at Palm Beach International Raceway, where he qualified eighth earlier this season.

Throughout the entire race, George held his own, racing inside the top-10 eventually leading laps (12 laps) for the first time in his ARCA Racing Series career. He impressed the crowd by leading and contending near the front of the field all day long.

George posted his career-best finish at Talladega as he took the checkered flag in third place on Friday in the 250-mile, 94-lap race. George's third-place finish made him the highest finishing Chevrolet in the top-11 finishing positions. It also was his career-best restrictor-plate finish.

George gained confidence over the last couple of weeks, and the finish at Talladega Superspeedway gives him that added momentum as the season continues. His previous best finish occurred at Palm Beach International on February 27 with University of Miami / Buoniconti Fund on the hood of the No. 31.

His finish at Talladega Superspeedway advanced him three positions into seventh place in the ARCA Racing Series point standings. George sits comfortably in the top ten in the driver point standings with 1110 points.

Tim George Jr. and the rest of the ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards will take three weeks off before the short-track action kicks in to high gear at the Menards 200 presented by Federated Car Care at Toledo Speedway on Sunday, May 23rd.
