Eddie Sharp Racing, Craig Goess Announce Plans to Compete in Two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Events in 2010

Denver, N.C. (Oct. 11, 2010)- Eddie Sharp, owner of Eddie Sharp Racing, announced team plans for the remainder of the 2010 season today. Craig Goess, runner-up in the 2010 ARCA Racing Series championship chase, will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) debut on Oct. 30, 2010 at Talladega Superspeedway. The team also plans to run with Goess at Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 19.

"I am happy to announce that Craig Goess will be competing in two NCWTS events this season," said Sharp. "We have extreme confidence in Craig Goess, and after three years with the organization, we know he is ready for the next step."

Goess, a 29-year-old driver from Greenville, N.C., raced this season in the ARCA Racing Series. Driving the No. 81 Greenville Toyota of N.C. Eddie Sharp Racing Toyota, Goess competed in one of the closest championship battles in series history. Before the green flag waved on the season finale Saturday at Rockingham Speedway, five points separated Goess and point leader Patrick Sheltra. Goess finished fifth in the race, but Sheltra's fourth place position secured the ARCA Racing Series championship. Goess finished second in the standings, 25 points back.

"I'm thrilled for the opportunity to move to the NASCAR ranks," said Goess. "It let's us keep racing, and I'm excited to get our feet wet. I think missing the ARCA Racing Series championship by such a close margin makes us even more hungry, so I'm really looking forward to Talladega and Homestead."
