Fogleman caught in Winchester net.

Jay Fogleman, the Short Track Shark, was caught in the Winchester (Ind.) Speedway net Saturday night during USAR Hooters ProCup North Division action.

The Lucas Oil Products, JFco Motorsports Ford No. 4 hadn't completed a lap when it was snared in a first-lap multi-car racing accident that relegated Fogleman to a 25th-place finish and dropped him from third to fourth in points.

"We qualified 13th and had a good setup under the car for the race," said Fogleman, who had the breath knocked out of him in the incident. "I'm fine, but we bent some suspension components, broke the tail shaft off the transmission and have to replace all the sheet metal."

Luckily for Fogleman and the JFco Motorsports team, the car doesn't require a front or rear clip.

"We're rebuilding the No. 4 Lucas Oil Ford to run the same car at Myrtle Beach, one of two Southern Division races we'll run this year," Fogleman said.

This isn't the first time the Short Track Shark has been caught in the net at Winchester; last year he was involved in an accident early in the North Division race, but came back during the Championship Series to run well on the high-banked half-mile.

The next scheduled USAR Hooters ProCup North Division race for Jay Fogleman and the Lucas Oil, JFco Motorsports Ford No. 4 team will be June 21 at Salem (Ind.) Speedway.
