Goess Heads to Music City Motorplex for More Saturday Night Short Track Racing

Denver, N.C. (July 16, 3008) -- Eddie Sharp Racing's Craig Goess and his Greenville Toyota team travel to Nashville, Tennessee for the Strutmasters.com NASCAR Camping World East Series 150 presented by Dollar General. This is the first visit to the 0.596-mile asphalt track for the Greenville, North Carolina driver.

"I'm looking forward to this weekend at Music City Motorplex," said Goess. "Although this is my first visit, Johnny Allen has been there before and is very familiar with the track. This should help us a lot this weekend. His experience will definitely help speed up the learning curve for all of us, myself included. He's had a lot of success there and we're looking forward to tapping into his knowledge."

Crew Chief Johnny Allen has made many trips to the Tennessee Fairground short track since his first adventure in 1987. As Crew Chief for Jeff Purvis, Allen won the famed All-American 400 three times (1991, 1992, and 1995).

Goess added, "It will be good to be down South again this weekend. It's a little closer to home for all of us at Eddie Sharp Racing, so that will be nice."
