Tim George Jr. Returns to Short-Track Racing with Vengeance


George Carries Short-Track Momentum to Berlin

 

 

Mooresville, N.C. (August 5, 2010)- Tim George Jr. is set to for battle in this Saturday's ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards short-track event at Berlin Raceway located outside of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The 200-lap event at the .44-mile racing facility will be George's second career-start at the Marne raceway.

 

This weekend's event at Berlin Raceway brings the return of the excitement of short-track racing. The last time the New York, N.Y. native visited a track under a mile in length, the RCR team brought home a fourth-place finish at Mansfield Motorsports Park. Looking for a repeat performance, the team will roll out the same chassis, No. 152, for the weekend that garnered the July finish.

 

George, who sits eighth in ARCA Racing series points, revels in his short-track glory.

 

"I'm looking forward to going back to short-track racing again in the ARCA Racing Series," said George. "Our last run on a short track was great for us in the RCR Development Chevrolet. Berlin is the shortest track we run, and is very unique having only three walls."

 

George is 315 points away from catching Justin Marks for the ARCA Racing Series point lead.

 

While George has had one prior career-start at the shortest track on the ARCA schedule, his bout of bad luck has overshadowed the overall performance. In last year's summer event, the 29-year old started 18th but, after a well-fought effort, a mid-race accident resulted in a 25th-place finish.

 

George will be meeting fans and signing autographs prior to the 200-lap event. He will sign autographs from 6:15-6:45 p.m. at Berlin Raceway on Saturday, July 7.
