(Fairfield, CA)- The most colorful race truck on the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series makes its 2001 debut this weekend at the Mesa Marin Raceway. Jim Inglebright, driver of the #02 Jelly Belly Chevrolet Silverado could not be happier as he enters his second year in the series.

"I am very positive about 2001," said the Fairfield, California native. "We have a great race team and our sponsor Jelly Belly is 100 percent behind us."

Last year Inglebright competed in seven races earning a career best 15th place finish in Fontana, California. His first career start came at the Phoenix International Raceway, where he finished a respectable 18th.

Returning with Roadrunner Motorsports is crew chief Rodney Haygood. "Rodney brings years of experience to our team along with very good leadership skills," said Inglebright, who will compete in ten events this season. Haygood has been involved with the series since 1996 and looks forward to another successful year with the Jelly Belly team.

Inglebright is no stranger to the Mesa Marin Raceway. He has competed there in the past, having won a main event and a trophy dash race in the NASCAR Featherlite Southwest Touring Series. The Orchard Supply Hardware 250 will be Inglebright's first start at the Mesa Marin Raceway in a truck.
