Glenn Allen Jr. Set for Balance of ASA season Veteran to continue with #4 Automotive Promotions Car
Pendleton, IN (July 24, 2000) - Owner Bud Gebben of Michigan-based Automotive Promotions has reached an agreement with ASA ACDelco Series veteran Glenn Allen Jr. of Cincinnati to continue as driver of the #4 GM Goodwrench Service Plus Pontiac through the remainder of the 2000 season. That will include the entire second half of the 20-event season, starting with the July 30 Glass City 300 presented by Jani-King at Toledo Speedway.
Allen has competed in recent ASA ACDelco Series events at Chicago Motor Speedway and Salem Speedway, recording finishes of 11th and fifth respectively.
He previously spent several years in the Busch Grand National Series since leaving ASA in 1996. In the 1995 ASA season, Allen’s final full campaign, he finished second in points to Bryan Reffner and collected one of his six career wins.
“We felt that Glenn was doing a good job in the car and was available for the entire season,” said Gebben. “His past records in ASA and Busch Grand National speaks for itself. For the sponsor to get a quality driver and to guarantee that they get some goo d television exposure, after weighing all of our options, we felt this would be best for GM Goodwrench and API.”
Allen will continue to team with 1998 ASA National Champion and current ACDelco Series points leader Gary St. Amant, the primary driver for API. The number 4 car was driven through the first six races by Teri MacDonald-Cadieux. Derrick Gilchrist drove th e car at Hawkeye Downs Speedway and I-70 Speedway.
The next event on the 2000 ASA ACDelco Series is the Glass City 300, presented by Jani-King on Sunday, July 30, 3 p.m. (Eastern) at Toledo Speedway. The event will be telecast live on TNN Sports. Tickets are available by calling 1-888-ASA-1020.
