Jennerstown ready for ProCup drivers.

Fayetteville, GA - As the 2002 regular season heads into the final four races in the USAR Hooters ProCup Series Northern Division, several drivers are looking forward to returning to Jennerstown Speedway on Saturday night August 3. The Hooters ProCup 250 will feature over 36 of the best short track drivers in the country.

Earlier this season Mardy Lindley and Jeff Agnew split the first two races held at the beautiful one-half mile track located about 50 miles east of Pittsburgh. Lindley opened the regular season, winning the caution-filled Naturally Fresh Foods 250 in April and then finished a close second to Agnew in June.

While the two veteran drivers have battled one another in Jennerstown, Brian Ross has yet to conquer the track in a ProCup car. Ross, who won four in a row at one point in the spring, has enjoyed a rookie campaign many drivers only dream about. Ross has finishes of fourth and third, respectively, and should be one of the contenders in August.

Another driver to watch is Eric Corbett. Corbett, from Hagerstown, MD, has collected back-to-back top-five finishes at Jennerstown and looks to continue his streak of consistent finishes. While Forest Urban, Jr. is the only other driver to finish in the top-10 for both races in 2002 at Jennerstown, local favorite Jeff Dunmyer could use his track experience to give his team their first top-10 finish after recording 11th and 12th-place finishes at Jennerstown earlier this year.

Agnew enters the race as the only repeat winner at the track after winning last year's photo finish last July. USAR Hooters ProCup Series Southern Division drivers Stacy Puryear and Shane Huffman also recorded wins last year with Huffman's coming in the first-ever Four Champions Championship Series event.

The Hooters ProCup Series 250 should be another action-packed race for the fans. Each race this season has featured a minimum of five lead changes and double-digit caution flags given to the field because of intense side-by-side racing.
