Goess Ready to Take on Thompson International Speedway

Denver, N.C. (July 9, 2008) -- After having the holiday weekend to dry out from the monsoon rains at Loudon, Craig Goess and his Greenville-Toyota team are ready to tackle Thompson International Speedway in Saturday's Pepsi Full Fender Frenzy 100.

"I'm looking forward to this weekend at Thompson," stated Goess. "This track resembles Kenly; a track where I've had a lot of experience and success in the Legends car. I am excited to continue working with my new Crew Chief, Johnny Allen and the crew he has put together."

Goess and his Eddie Sharp Racing team travelled to Kenly, NC today to shakedown the No. 2 Greenville-Toyota Toyota at Southern National Raceway Park.

Goess recorded his career best start and finish the last time he was at a short-track, starting tenth and finishing 13th at South Boston Speedway. Goess and the No. 2 Greenville-Toyota team have high hopes of bettering both those statistics this weekend at the 5/8 mile high-banked asphalt oval.

NASCAR Camping World Series East practice runs from 12:00 until 12:45 p.m. on Saturday, July 12, 2008, with Final Practice from 1:30 until 2:15 p.m. Qualifying follows on Saturday at 5:15 p.m. The green flag for the 100-lap race at Thompson International Raceway drops at 8:30 p.m. All times listed are EASTERN.
