Taylor Motorsports Drivers Ready to Do Battle in USAR ProCup Series Action

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., (August 13, 2001) -- Hal Goodson and Scott Hall head into this weekend's USAR ProCup Series event at South Boston (Va.) Speedway with a little spring in their step. For Goodson, the event marks the one year anniversary of his first USAR ProCup Series victory.

"That was a really special win that we got up at South Boston last year," Goodson said. "I had just started driving for Taylor Motorsports and we unloaded the car and were fast from the start. I knew after that race that I was involved in something very special."

"I had reached a point in my career where I was wondering what was left for me," Goodson added. "Then I got the call from Taylor Motorsports and everything seemed to gel right off the bat. The win last year at South Boston will always have a special meaning to me. I can't wait to walk back through the gates up there again."

Goodson heads into this weekend's event at the southern Virginia track second in USAR ProCup Series Southern Division standings. Goodson trails leader Bobby Gill by 36 points.

For Scott Hall, this weekend's event will mark the first time the Walkertown, N.C. resident has seen the track. Hall, however, isn't worried because he knows he is bringing a loaded weapon with him.

"The car we will be racing this weekend is the same one that my teammate, Hal Goodson, had up at South Boston last year and won the race with," Hall said. "We know we are bringing a winning car, now it's my job to keep it up front and out of trouble."

Hall heads to South Boston looking to turn his luck around. After an impressive third-place qualifying effort at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway two weeks ago in USAR ProCup Series action, Hall was collected in an incident with Shane Huffman that saw Huffman's car land on the hood of Hall's No. 54 machine.

"If we can stay out of trouble and complete all the laps, I think we have a good shot at contending for the win," Hall said.

USAR ProCup Series action at South Boston Speedway gets the green flag this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. EST.
