Sean Corr; Empire Racing Look To Be TECHnical At Pocono Raceway

LONG POND, Pennsylvania (June 8, 2011) - - Fresh off their sixth consecutive top-20 finish this past Saturday night at Chicagoland Speedway, Sean Corr and his Empire Racing team now march to Pocono (Pa.) Raceway eager for a top-10 performance in Saturday’s Pocono ARCA 200.

In order to capture that top-10 finish this weekend, Corr knows that being technical will be crucial to success around the triangle race course. The three-turn 2.5-mile track simulates portions of an oval and a road course combined.

Thankfully, the Goshen, New York native will make his fifth start at the track nestled in the Pocono Mountains. In his prior four races, Corr has a worst finish of 16th and started a career-best eighth last August.

Giving the team some an added boost for the seventh race of the year, Corr and his family-owned team welcome TransTech aboard their No. 82 Ford Fusion as the primary marketing partner of their automobile. TransTech joins Roush Yates Engines and Roush Yates Performance as marketing partners this weekend.

“I always enjoy going to Pocono, so I’m pumped about this weekend,” offered Corr, who currently stands ninth in the ARCA championship standings. “Pocono is a very different track but I enjoy it immensely. A good handling car and tons of horsepower is crucial towards success at Pocono. I know that my crew chief Howard (Bixman) has an ideal setup for this weekend and Roush Yates Engines offers some of the best motors in the series’, so I’m looking forward to hammering down Saturday afternoon.”

With the halfway mark approaching in the 2011 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, Corr is satisfied but anxious to show more.

“We have a great team, one of the best I feel in the garage,” explained the 27-year old. “They have worked hard all season long. Countless amount of hours all with one goal in mind, win. We’ve had fast cars all season long but we’ve just had some circumstances beyond our control that have hindered us from the finishes I feel we deserve. We’re marching forward though and Pocono would be a great place to deliver our best finish of the year thus far.”

The driver of the No. 82 TransTech / Roush Yates Engines / Roush Yates Performance Ford Fusion continued, “I really want to thank TransTech for jumping aboard for this race. Pocono is close to home, so not only will we have folks from TransTech here but I’ll also have a bunch of friends and family making the trip to watch me race.”

Corr will make his 17th career start on Saturday afternoon. In his previous 16 races, the avid dirt racer has maneuvered eight top-15 efforts and 13 top-20 finishes including six consecutive in 2011. Pocono Raceway hoists the track with Corr’s career best finish of 12th in August 2010. An eighth place qualifying effort at the 2.5-mile triangle also in August 2010 is also a personal best accomplishment to date.

Recently, Empire Racing and BoomText officially announced the “Hard Corr Fans” program powered by BoomText, a mobile marketing campaign which allows fans to pledge towards becoming an official member of the Empire Racing team – not to mention helping three of Corr’s personal charities. To join the campaign, fans just simply have to text the word “CORR” to 411247 where they will receive an automated safe-secured link to join the “Hard Corr Fans” team.
