Mooresville, NC (January 4, 2009) - Second year ARCA Series driver Craig Goess Jr. will be returning to the No. 81 Greenville Toyota of NC fielded by Eddie Sharp Racing (ESR) and running fulltime in 2010. Competing in his Rookie season in 2009, Goess finished fifth in points with 2 top-5s and 12 top-10s. During the 21-race season, Goess raced to a career-best third place finish at Pocono RCraig Goess Jr. aceway.
"We're excited to have Craig back for another season," said Sharp. "He's a great, talented young man and the first driver to start a domino effect for ESR to build upon last season's championship run and compete for a championship in the 2010 season."
A Woodbury, N.J. native and current Greenville, N.C. resident, Goess previously competed nationwide in various levels of racing. The 28-year-old earned more than 200 feature wins at 24 tracks in the Semi-Pro and Pro divisions. From 2005-2007, Goess won 40 out of 48 entered events, claiming three National Pro Division Championships since 2001.
Moving further up the ranks in his career, Goess competed in the NASCAR Camping World Series East Division in 2008 running the No. 2 Greenville Toyota for ESR. In only 12 starts, Goess earned 1 top-5 and 3 top-10s, finishing 16th in points.
"I hope to get some wins under my belt in ARCA this year and look forward to working with ESR again," said Goess. "They're a great organization to race for and hopefully we can build momentum from last year into 2010."
