Jake Hobgood Successfully Defends His Usa International Speedway Champion Title With Second Win Of The Season

LAKELAND, FLA. (October 20, 2001) - Jake Hobgood is the first driver to win a Goody's Dash Series, NASCAR Touring event, at USA International Speedway, from the pole position. He is also the first repeat winner at the speedway. The Series has visited the track five times since 1997 and there had been four previous winners. Hobgood was shuffled to the 8th starting position in the pre-race draw. "I had to conserve my tires throughout the early stages of the race. When it was time to go my car seemed to explode with power and it stood up to what I needed it to do," said Hobgood.
