Jennerstown Ready for Pro Cup Stars

Longs, SC - In 2004 Jennerstown Speedway gave Johnny Rumley a memory he won't soon forget during his Hooters Pro Cup Series driving career. Rumley collected his first career win in the Series last year at Jennerstown Speedway during the spring race and is one of the favorites entering the Naturally Fresh 250 presented by Hooters Air Saturday night May 28 at 7:00 pm. Rumley was able to hold off Jeff Agnew for his first win last year that gave the veteran a win and he followed his win with a solid sixth-place finish in the Championship Series race in the fall.

Agnew collected a pair of top-five finishes at Jennerstown last year and always enjoys racing the challenging half-mile track. Agnew and Mardy Lindley are the only two drivers pre-entered for the Naturally Fresh 250 presented by Hooters Air with multiple wins at Jennerstown Speedway.

"We have always had pretty good luck at that track," said Agnew. "We had a pretty good car last year and came up just a little short. Hopefully this season we can move up a couple of spots and get another win there. It will be a challenge to get the win but we feel our NGA Hooters Pro Golf Tour car can get the job done."

Jennerstown Speedway was the first track selected for the Northern Division when the Hooters Pro Cup Series became the first national touring series to adopt the two division playoff-style format. The track has hosted 11 Hooters Pro Cup Series races which is more than any other track on the schedule.

Benny Gordon delighted his hometown fans last year finishing second in the spring race and leading many laps during the Charlie Campbell Memorial 250 Championship Series race en route to his second consecutive runner up finish in the point standings. Gordon has already collected a win this year winning the season-opener for the Northern Division at South Boston Speedway and will be one of the favorites to get his second win at his home-state track.

The Naturally Fresh 250 presented by Hooters Air race day will begin with practice for the Hooters Pro Cup Series cars at 11:30 am. Fans will be able to enter beginning at 4:00 pm with qualifying slated to begin at 4:30 pm. Make sure to bring the kids early to meet the drivers and see the cars up close during our on-track autograph session at 5:45 pm and the 3,300 pound steel bodied machines will fire the engines at 7:00 pm.
