No. 4 Ford Fusion Separates At Glover Foods 250
Driver shares great learnings from a tough race

Durham, NC, April 4, 2007--The Glover Foods 250 took place last Saturday and the No. 4 Ford Fusion the Works driver, Jay Fogleman, let a top 10 finish slip away as he experienced a tough ride.

The No. 4 driver, Jay Fogleman, finished in 24th despite maintaining a top 10 position for more than half the race. Fogleman kept adjusting his brakes during the race and then ultimately became the victim of a wreck around lap 170. The wreck damaged the front end of the car and caused the No. 4 Ford's engine to overheat so Fogleman felt he had no choice but to go behind the wall with about 15 to go and call it a night.

"This race felt really good after we made an early pit stop to take some wedge out of the car. Then trouble set in and it was bad luck for the remainder of the race," said Fogleman. "There are some really great lessons to be learned from races that don't go my way. This go-round helped me better understand the importance of track position. It's critical to ensure each race a lesson is learned in order to accomplish the goals I set for myself. My team did a great job at Saturday's race and we're all pretty jazzed for our next event at Concord Motorsport Park where we finished with a top five last year. We're looking forward to regaining our rankings and hope to duplicate our previous run at Concord. We'll see you there!"

The green flag dropped for the Hooters Pro Cup Series 2007 season at the USA International Speedway in Lakeland, FL held on March 10. Since the Glover Foods 250, there are 11 remaining Southern division races and the season will end back in Lakeland on November 3 at the Robert H. Brooks Memorial Hooters 300.
