MEXICAN ROAD RACING STAR GOETERS BACK IN #32 AT WATKINS GLEN
MOORESVILLE, NC (August 9, 2005) -- Mexico City native Jorge Goeters will be back behind the wheel of the #32 Braun Racing Chevrolet for this weekend's Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International. Goeters and 42 other drivers will take the green flag on Saturday to compete in the first NASCAR Busch Series event held at Watkins Glen since 2001.
"I am very excited to be back in the #32 Braun Racing car for the race at Watkins Glen," Jorge said. "I learned so much about the car when I drove it a few weeks ago at Pikes Peak. Every chance that I have to make laps in a Busch car allows me to gain the experience that I need to get faster. These cars are very different from the stock cars that I drive in Mexico, so I am learning all the time."
Although the Braun Racing team did not travel to Watkins Glen for the August 1 & 2 test session, Goeters made laps around the track in the #66 Brewco Motorsports car and assisted driver Greg Biffle.
"Brewco Motorsports allowed me the opportunity to test with them a few weeks ago at Watkins Glen, and I have been asked to compete in the Grand Am race on Friday before the Busch Series event, so I will be very familiar with the track before the race," Jorge explained. "The Braun Racing team has been great to work with and I think that together we will be a threat to win this weekend."
Goeters, who received international attention earlier this year when he captured the pole and led 24 laps in the inaugural NASCAR Busch Series race in Mexico City, will pilot the #32 Canel's / Scotiabank Inverlat Chevrolet for Mooresville, NC based Braun Racing.
"Since the race in Mexico earlier this year, I have been looking forward to competing in another NASCAR Busch Series road race," Goeters said. "I experienced a tremendous amount of success with the #66 Brewco team in Mexico, and I am looking forward to having the opportunity to drive the #32 Braun Racing car at Watkins Glen. I hope to be able to capture another pole position and to lead laps, but this time I really want to win the race. I know that Braun Racing has a very good road course car prepared for me and the team did well in Mexico finishing fourth, so hopefully we will have a very successful weekend that ends in victory lane."
Don't miss any of the action as the NASCAR Busch Series returns to Watkins Glen International for the first time since 2001. Mexican road racing star Jorge Goeters will be back behind the wheel of the #32 Braun Racing Chevrolet looking to build on the success that he had at the beginning of the season in the first road course event in Mexico.
