DANNY JACKSON RACES TO A 13TH PLACE FINISH AT MADISON INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY
Looking forward to Mansfield, OH in two weeks

Cincinnati, OH (May 28, 2007) After weeks of disappointment, Danny Jackson leaves his third Hooters Pro Cup start happy with his finish. Jackson raced at Madison International Speedway in Wisconsin on May 26th. After two starts and not finishing, Jackson's goal was to be patient and let the race come to him. The Rebank Transport/Tri-State Sterling/Lykins Companies/Ultra Lube/Beamer Brothers Chevy finished in the 13th position.

"I am happy with our finish. I would obviously like to win, but getting a solid finish is what we needed this week. That was my main focus. It has been a struggle the last few races, but I think we are getting things figured out and gaining great experience. I am excited to get in the car at Mansfield in a few weeks. That is a track I am familiar with and is closer to my hometown, so I should be able to get some testing time in."

Jackson will be racing at Mansfield, OH on June 9th. Jackson currently sits 17th in points and third in the USAR Hooters Pro Cup Northern Division Rookie points. Car owner Dave Jackson was also happy with the finish at Madison. "It has been a rough couple of weeks, but that is what happens sometimes. Danny drove a great race at Madison and kept himself out of any incidents. It's important to get a strong finish in a new series. We are confident going into Madison. It's a hard track to pass on, so track position is going to be really important for Danny."

This will be one of the closest races to Jackson's hometown of Loveland, OH. The team says it will be nice to be in an area where people know your name and will come out to watch. "I hope that some of my hometown fans will have a chance to make it out to watch the race. It's hard with the long distance some of the tracks are, but maybe this week we can get some more fans in the stands," Jackson said. It's nice to also have prior experience at Mansfield, as this is only one of two tracks Jackson will have raced at in previous years.
