Tim George Jr. Overcomes Adversity In Daytona

TimGeorgeJr
Daytona Beach, FL (February 24, 2013) – Tim George Jr. piloting the No. 5 Grand Touring Vodka Ford powered by Applebee’s posted a 16th-place finish for Wauters Motorsports after overcoming an early incident in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Daytona International Speedway.

George Jr. placed the GT Vodka truck in 24th-place position on the starting grid for the running of the NEXTERA Energy 250 in his first start for the team owned by former crew chief Richie Wauters.

George and his teammates knew they had a strong race truck from the start as George worked the low groove of the draft pack on the 2.5-mile superspeedway for the first half of the 100-lap event. Then, on lap 54, the anticipated ‘big one’ unfolded just ahead of the GT Vodka Ford.  George Jr. thought he had escaped the 14-truck pileup until he was hit from behind, sending him sideways and giving him a flat front tire.  He was able to make it back to pit road where his Wauters Motorsports pit crew went to work on getting the truck back on the track.

Despite heavy nose and splitter damage on the GT Vodka Ford powered by Applebee’s, George Jr. returned to the race and was able to run some of the fastest laps of the race on the legendary high-banked Daytona International Speedway, posting very impressive NASCAR “loop” statistics. Although he was driving a heavily damaged race truck, NASCAR statisticians listed George Jr. as the fastest driver early in a run, a ranking that is made during the initial 25 percent of laps run following a pit stop.

“This was challenging to say the least,” said George Jr. after the race. “We thought we missed the accident in front of us only to get clipped from behind. I was sent into the infield which blew a tire causing heavy front end damage.

“My team did great job fixing up the GT Vodka Ford. They were able to keep me on the lead lap. But driving a truck at 180 mph with Bear Bond flapping and the wind hitting your legs was difficult. I have to hand it to my spotter Tyler Green. He kept me focused and urged me on and we were able to post a 16th place finish in my first truck race at Daytona.

“This evening would not have been possible without the support of Greg Sacks, Grand Touring Vodka and Applebee’s. Thank you for all of your support.”

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series resumes with race number two of a 22-race schedule at Martinsville Speedway, April 6, 2013.

Tim George Injured, Will Not Compete In NASCAR In 2013

TimGeorgeJr
Tim George was schedule to race par-time for Richard Childress Racing in the Camping World Truck Series for 2013 with sponsorship from Applebee’s. He would have been the third RCR truck alongside Ty Dillon and Brendan Gaughan.

Today George announced that he will not be competing in the Camping World Truck Series for 2013 due to an ankle injury that he suffered while snowmobiling.

He had twelve starts last year for Childress in the Camping World Truck Series with a nine place finish at Talladega and a pole award at Kansas.

Members of the media did pursue comments from Richard Childress Racing, but none have been returned so far.

Speculation is that Childress will shut down the team for this season leaving the entire crew without a job sending them back to the unemployment fields of NASCAR.

Tim George Jr. Collects Top-20 Finish in Season-Finale Race at Homestead-Miami Speedway

TimGeorgeJr
Tim George Jr. and the No. 2 Applebee’s / Potomac Family Dining Group Chevrolet team finished 18th after a last-lap spin in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season-finale race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Starting from the 30th position, the Richard Childress Racing driver climbed into the top 25 by lap 30 while wrestling with a loose-handling Chevrolet.

After the first four-tire pit stop of the night under caution on lap 38, George restarted 20th and maintained a top-25 running position for the first part of the 140-lap event. A caution-flag period on lap 105 gave George the opportunity to take a “wave around” pass, putting the Applebee’s driver only one lap down to the leader.

George found himself hovering in and around the top 20 for the remainder of the race while narrowly escaping a multi-truck accident that involved his RCR teammate, Ty Dillon with one lap to go in the event. Restarting in the 18th position for the green-white-checkered finish, George kept his truck out of trouble until he was caught up in a spin on the last lap of the event coming out of the turn four.

George was able to cross the finish line in the 18th position and the No. 2 Chevrolet team finished 14th in 2012 Camping World Truck Series owner championship point standings.
Start – 30
Finish – 18
Laps Led – 0
Owner Points – 11

TIM GEORGE JR. QUOTE:
“This was not the way I wanted to end the season. First of all, I have to thank Gere (Kennon, crew chief) and the rest of my guys for giving me a really fast truck. We were fast right off the hauler. I like Homestead-Miami Speedway. I was loose during qualifying and nearly lost it in turn four which gave us a bad starting position. That pretty much sealed our fate with a short race. Every position was a fight. I did get a good restart for the green-white-checkered finish and then lost the air and spun out on the final turn. I’ve learned a lot about racing the trucks this year and I’m looking forward to next year.”

Blown Tire Relegates Tim George Jr. to a 27th-Place Finish at Martinsville

TimGeorgeJr
Start – 33          
Finish – 27        
Laps Led – 0       
Points – N/A

In his career-first NASCAR Camping World Series start at Martinsville Speedway, Tim George Jr. was improving his position when a blown right-front tire resulted in laps lost to the leader and relegated the No. 93 Applebee’s/Potomac Family Dining Group team to a 27th-place finish. Starting the Kroger 200 from the 33rd position, the New York City native exercised patience and methodically made his way into the 21st position by lap 89. On lap 93, the bead of the right-front tire melted with the heavy brake use that is typical at the Virginia-based short track, sending the No. 93 Chevrolet Silverado into the outside retaining wall. George drove the truck to pit road for four new Goodyear Eagles, fuel and minor repairs to the fender. Returning to the track in the 30th position, two laps down to the leader, George regained what ground he could in the remaining 100 circuits to bring home a 27th-place result.

TIM GEORGE JR QUOTE:
“That was fun. Martinsville Speedway is a fun little track. The Applebee's/Potomac Family Dining Group Chevrolet Silverado was fast. We should have had a better finish except for that (blown) tire. I learned a lot today, especially racing with (teammate, Kevin) Harvick. I can see how guys can either love or hate this place. It’s a real challenge to get it right here. Right now, I like it.”

Tim George Jr. Earns Top-15 Finish at Iowa Speedway

TimGeorgeJr
Start - 18                             
Finish - 15                       
Laps Led - 0                
Owner Points - 9

Tim George Jr. and the No. 2 Applebee's/Potomac Family Dining Group team finished 15th at Iowa Speedway after battling handling conditions on the Chevrolet for the majority of the American Ethanol 200. George Jr. started the 200-lap affair from the 18th position and maintained a running position within the top 20 for the first portion of the event. The New York City native reported a loose-handling condition in the entry of the corners and a tight-handling condition in the exit of the corners in the early stages of the race. Crew chief Gere Kennon instructed the Richard Childress Racing driver to increase and decrease the amount of brake on the Chevrolet Silverado to help remedy the handling issues. Over the course of three pit stops, the Kennon-led team made routine chassis adjustments to assist with the handling on George's No. 2 Chevrolet. George battled for position in the closing laps and was a to maneuver around the 0.875-mile track to cross the finish line in the 15th position.

TIM GEORGE JR. QUOTE: "For tonight to be successful, I wanted a top-15 finish and a No. 2 Applebee's/ Potomac Family Dining Group Chevrolet in one piece. We came here and accomplished that. I'm happy with how the race went and really enjoyed racing at Iowa Speedway. I'm excited to get to Pocono Raceway because it's my home track, and I've performed well there in the past."
