Goess Makes Road Course Debut at "The Glen"

Denver, N.C. (June 5, 3008) - This weekend Craig Goess and his Eddie Sharp Racing team travel to Watkins Glen International for the NASCAR Camping World Series East 125 at the Glen. On the heels of his career-best start and finish, Goess has high hopes for his first road course start in the No. 2 Greenville-Toyota Toyota.

"We had a decent car at South Boston last weekend and drove a hard race. I am really hoping that the momentum can carry us into Watkins Glen," said Goess. "I went to Arizona for the Bob Bondurant Driving School a few weeks ago and I really believe that can help me this weekend. I learned a lot there, everything from how to shift, to just road course racing in general. It was a lot of fun."

Goess added, "I'm learning so much in these cars and I hope we have a good run. The NASCAR Camping World Series East is such a competitive series and I'm getting great experience."

This weekend Goess makes his fourth in the NASCAR Camping World Series East. The Camping World Series East 125 at the Glen is a three-day event that begins with practice on Friday, June 6th from 1:25 until 2:25 p.m. and from 5:35 p.m. - 6:35 p.m. Practice times will determine Saturday's qualifying order. Qualifying begins on Saturday, June 7th at 6:00 p.m. and the green flag will wave Sunday, June 8th at 12:30 p.m. All times are EASTERN.
