Fogleman Hopes for Big Start to Season

Jay Fogleman, driver of the JFco Motorsports Lucas Oil Products No. 4 Ford, looks for a big start to the 2004 USAR Hooters ProCup season on Feb. 28 at USA International Speedway in Lakeland, Fla.

"The competition's going to be tough, as it always is," Fogleman said. "But I think we'll be able to start the season off big, hopefully with a win."

But the Durham, N.C., racing veteran knows that 2004 starts with a lot of unknowns for the ProCup series.

"We're racing with the BFGoodrich radial tire for the first time in ProCup," Fogleman observes, "and the key -- especially early in the season -- will be to adjust to the new tires. The team that's best prepared will come out on top, and I think we're well-prepared."

But tires are not the only unknown for ProCup competitors in 2004.

"A lot of good rookie drivers are coming into the series this year," Fogleman says. "It's going to be a competitive year; I can't wait to get started."
