JOLIET, Illinois (June 1, 2011) - - After battling two short tracks and a road course all of which were new to ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards driver Sean Corr, the Goshen, New York native is looking forward to Saturday’s Messina Animal Wildlife Stopper 150 at Chicagoland Speedway.

There are many reasons that the Empire Racing driver is looking forward to his return to the Windy City. The sixth race of the year signifies the first intermediate race of the year; a cookie-cutter type of race track that the ARCA championship contender is used to and most of all, Corr sees his second race at Chicagoland Speedway as a prime opportunity to maneuver his No. 82 Roush Yates Performance / Roush Yates Engines / Empire Racing Ford Fusion into the top-10 for the first time in his ARCA career.

“I’m looking forward to this weekend,” said Corr who made his lone Chicagoland start in 2009 finishing 13th after starting 27th. “I really like the bigger type of tracks on the ARCA circuit. I enjoy the speed and the immense competition it brings for the series and the competitors.”

To see the team’s confidence improving is beyond an understatement. Thus far, the team has posted five consecutive top-20 finishes which has retained Corr inside the top-10 in the ARCA championship standings. Also, the team had a strong open-test at Michigan International Speedway last Wednesday in the No. 82 Roush Yates Performance / Roush Yates Engines / Empire Racing Ford Fusion which saw the team produce a top-10 time overall.

“Our team is really starting to find our niche,” added Corr. “Howard (Bixman, crew chief), John (Bellesfield, team manager) have been working extremely hard to make this Empire Racing team competitive and I’m pleased with the direction that we are going. The team is confident in our bigger track program, especially after the success last week at Michigan. I’m looking forward to having a good weekend.”

He added, “the continued support from Roush Yates Performance and Roush Yates Engines has been immaculate. They have become like family here at Empire Racing and we are thankful for that. I know we’re going to have some great power under the hood – so hopefully we can give Ford their first win of the season.”

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.

The Messina Animal Wildlife Stopper 150 (100 laps / 150 miles) is the sixth of 19 events on the 2011 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule. The 11th ARCA event held at Chicagoland Speedway is a two-day show. Practice begins Friday, June 3 with a one hour and twenty minute practice session planned from 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Menards Pole by Ansell qualifying is slated to begin at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 4. The field will take the green flag shortly after 5:00 p.m. The event will be televised same-day delayed on SPEED beginning at 10:00 p.m. CST / 11:00 p.m. EST.
