Josh Poore Aiming for Street Stock Championship

(March 16, 2011) – Joining a talented list of track champions that will be competing in the Street Stock division, Josh Poore has announced his intentions to compete for the 2011 Street Stock Championship at Anderson Speedway. He will also be racing full-time in the EDCO CRA Street Stocks.

“I want to win as many races as possible and contend for both championships,” said Josh Poore.

The 2010 season ended on a superb note for Poore as he captured the final three Street Stock events at the quarter-mile oval. One of those victories included a CRA Street Stock victory during the EDCO Welding & Hydraulics Night at the Races.

“The 2010 season was incredible. I felt that I had a chance to win anywhere we went and the car was really dialed in at the end of the year.”

In addition to winning the final three Street Stock main events, Poore won the 300-lap CRA Street Stock event last June after leading the final 117 circuits and finishing 0.404 seconds ahead of Rich Boyer.

“CRA has some of the toughest competition around and to win anywhere against those guys is special. Winning on my home track in front of my fans made it even more special. I really enjoyed defending the home turf.”

Poore began his racing career at Anderson in 2004 winning the ThunderCar drivers title. He then advanced to the SuperTruck division the following season earning the Rookie of the Year honors and placing sixth in the in the final standings. In 2006, he scored his first division victory and then a steady progression in season point finishes with third in 2007 and narrowly missing the championship trophy in the final season of the SuperTruck division in 2008.

Sponsors that help Josh Poore include Graphx Now, Deb and Donna’s Diner, N&J Collision, Goober Stanley Motorsports and Motion Motors. The team will welcome any new marketing partners that want to be part of the team for the 2011 season.

Josh sends specials thanks to his mom and dad, Rickey Tharp, Goober, Scott Neal, Country and everyone that helps out with the race team.

The racing season begins for Poore in the Street Stock division on Saturday, April 9.
