FAYETTEVILLE, GA (September 8, 2000) -- USAR is pleased to announce that Jennerstown Speedway in Jennerstown, Pennsylvania has signed to open and close the 2001 USAR Hooters ProCup Series Northern Division schedule. Jennerstown will host one regular season race and one championship series race next year.

"We are pleased to have Jennerstown Speedway on our 2001 schedule," said Cox. "When we began our research on tracks that could host a Hooters ProCup Series race Jennerstown was one of the first tracks we contacted. We are honored that one of the premier short-tracks in the nation has decided to welcome USAR."

Jennerstown, a one-half mile track in southern Pennsylvania, has a storied history in the region. Steve Peles, current General Manager of the facility looks forward to the touring series making its visit next year.

"It is a dream come true for us," said Peles. "I have followed the Hooters ProCup Series for a while and I am a fan. It is an honor for the speedway to host this prestigious race and series."

While the Hooters ProCup Series prepares to venture into uncharted territory, Peles feels race fans in the area will enjoy the 3,300-pound, 550 horsepower stock cars.

"The Hooters ProCup Series cars will put on a great show," added Peles. "Our fans enjoy Late Model racing so they are familiar with stock cars."

The first race is tentatively scheduled for late April with the Championship Challenge event tentatively scheduled for late September. The pair of events to be held at Jennerstown Speedway are part of a 30-race schedule planned for the 2001 season.

USAR currently holds 20 races in six southeastern states from February thru November. The Hooters ProCup Series is officially sponsored by Hooters of America, Eastern Foods, Inc., Naturally Fresh Dressings and Dips, Jackaroo Sauces, Lucas Oil Products, Miller Beer, Discount Auto Parts, and Goodyear.
