Corbett, local favorite, comes in second place in USAR Hooters ProCup race.
Hagerstown, MD. On Saturday, April 12, 2003 the USAR Hooters ProCup northern division series dropped the green flag on the 2003 season. Local driver Eric Corbett entered the race along with 33 other cars.
Corbett qualified the FMS, Clean & Shine, LSI Taurus in the 9th position. At the drop of the green Corbett made his charge for the front of the pack. The race included nine lead changes switched between seven different drivers, which set a new track record for the USAR ProCup Series. Corbett, taking second place when the checkered waved, took his turn in the lead as well.
When asked about his thoughts on the race, Corbett said, "I am happy with the outcome of the race this past weekend. I would have liked to been able to challenge Ross for the win but I was having some motor problems with 40 to go." Corbett, bringing home a second place finish, is now tied with Agnew for the second place position in the points race for the northern division.
Corbett, seemingly pleased with the outcome of the USAR Hooters ProCup northern opener, was thankful to those who helped him get there. "I would like to thank my sponsors for their support. Fredericksburg Motors Sports, who can be found at www.fmscycles.com and Clean and Shine, are great additions to our team. Clean and Shine owner Kevin Kipe actually was able to come to the race and drive the Hagerstown Speedway pace car for the opening of the race." Corbett also thanks Larry & Sons, Inc. who has been a sponsor since day one.
With the season starting out at a good pace, Corbett looks on to the next challenge. "We had a good weekend, and hopefully it will only get better."
The April 12th race will be aired on Speed Channel this Thursday night at 7PM.
