Greased Lightning® Extends JFco Motorsports Sponsorship into 2007
The Works® Brand Joins the Ranks with a New Race Team
Durham, N.C.-Greased Lightning and JFco Motorsports extend their relationship today by securing the Atlanta based company as a primary sponsor of their team for the 2007 Hooters Pro Cup Series season. Joining them, a second brand, the Works®, will be sponsoring another JFco team, which will also compete in the Hooters Pro Cup Series.
As part of the pact, Jay Fogleman will be sporting new colors in 2007 by driving the Works-branded No. 4 race car in the Southern Division. Jody Lavender, a successful veteran Pro Cup driver for the past three years, will pilot the Greased Lightning car in the Northern Division.
"Having two cars in the Hooters Pro Cup Series come from the same stable is something new to us and we're excited about it," states Helmut Baker, Biolab's Vice President of Household Chemicals. "Jay Fogleman and our relationship with JFco Motorsports has provided us a great opportunity to reach our audience with our cleaning products. We look forward to a successful year with Jay and the Works car and also Jody Lavender driving the Greased Lightning car in 2007."
"I'm proud to say I represented the Greased Lightning brand for the past two years," said Jay Fogleman. "We have a great relationship so I look forward to moving into 2007 with two cars and two brands. Next year is definitely the year for JFco to bring the No. 4 car into victory lane."
"I look forward to joining the JFco team and representing Greased Lightning next year," said Jody Lavender. "This is an opportunity for me to expand on the great success Jay has already had with the Greased Lightning branded car, and I will do everything I need to do to have a great season and get us to victory lane."
Fogleman leads all active Pro Cup drivers with the most starts and the most consecutive starts. Also, Fogleman has over 100 career wins with 10 of those coming from the Pro Cup Series. Lavender has one win under his belt in the Pro Cup Series thus far and was declared the Pro Cup's Most Popular Driver just last year.
