** THE GLEN 150 / DAVE PECKO FAST FACTS **

The Task Ahead: Dave Pecko and the Ithaca Gun Racing Team makes their only road course appearance of 1999 as the Featherlite Modified Series invades the Watkins Glen road course for the running of The Glen 150. The Vandling (PA) driver is ready for his second career start at the 2.45-mile facility and is looking forward to the event. Pecko says, "We've have put in a lot of hours over the past month getting ready for this race. This race obviously means a lot to us not only because of Ithaca Gun, but because we know a lot of fans and friends familiar with us from Tioga Speedway will be there as well. We want to make the show, turn in a good run, and see if we can keep making progress as a team."
