Goess a veteran in numerous series, is no stranger to the fast-paced racing action commonly seen at South Boston Speedway (SoBo).

The 30-year-old has also participated in a handful of test sessions at SoBo in an ARCA Racing Series car.
Crew chiefed by NASCAR veteran Randy Renfrow, Goess will be making his second start of 2012 in the No. 81 Greenville Toyota, Coulter Motorsports Toyota Camry. His last event at Dillon Motor Speedway, the South Carolina Clash 150 saw Goess finish 21st after a Lap 4 incident took him from contention.
Racing action kicks off Saturday morning with two practice sessions at 9:30 a.m. and 10:20 a.m. Qualify is set for 11:45 a.m. promptly followed by South Boston Speedway's feature events getting underway at 2 p.m. The PASS Super Late Model 150 is the second of four feature events scheduled for Saturday.

"SoBo (South Boston Speedway) is a track steeped with great racing history that provides great on-track excitement for the drivers and fans. I have been fortunate to have a lot of success here in the past and I look forward to translating that into our No. 81 Toyota Camry on Saturday."
