Hooter's ProCup Rookie Candidate, Joel Kauffman, has solid performance at Jennerstown.

April 14, 2003 (LaGrange, IN) 2003 USAR Hooter's ProCup Rookie of the Year candidate, Joel Kauffman, started his season off with a solid performance this past weekend in the Lucas Oil 250 at Jennerstown Speedway in Jennerstown, PA.

17-year-old Kauffman qualified his #44 Chevrolet on the outside pole Saturday afternoon and was able to run in the top 10 all evening, leading 8 laps early in the event and finishing the race in 8th.

"We were pleased with our results this weekend" remarked Kauffman. "Our goal for this weekend was to produce a solid qualifying effort and complete all the laps in the race. It is an honor to be out here racing door to door with some of the best short track talent in the country. We are a new team to USAR so we need to earn our respect with the officials, teams and drivers and this is the best way to do it."

"It was important for us to come here and run good," stated Josh Tucker, the teams Marketing and Public Relations Manager. "L.A. West Luxury Vehicles and Choo Choo Customs stepped up this weekend as a primary sponsor but that was a one race deal. We are actively seeking marketing partners for this race team and for us to come to the first race and have results like this helps. We have great equipment and great people involved with this team and efforts like this help prove our ability. Joel is very talented and can offer a lot of publicity to the right company," added Tucker.

This race will be shown on SPEED Channel this Thursday, April 17th at 7:00pm EST. The team's next race will be the Food City 250 at Lonesome Pine Raceway in Coeburn, VA. That race is scheduled to take the green flag on April 26th at 7:00pm and will air on SPEED Channel Thursday, May 1st at 7:00pm EST. For more information on Joel you can visit the teams official website, www.joelkauffman.com.
