MYRTLE BEACH, SC -- After competing in the Northern Division of the USAR Hooters ProCup Series the past two seasons, veteran driver Mardy Lindley will return to the Southern Division in 2003. Lindley will be at Five Flags Speedway this weekend for the running of the Jackaroo Sauces 250 presented by O'Reilly Auto Parts & Alltel.

"I really enjoyed running the Northern Division the past two years," said Lindley. "We have an opportunity to run competitively in the Southern Division this year and that is what we decided to do as a team."

Lindley, who has six career wins in the USAR Hooters ProCup Series, picked up two of his career wins at Southern Division tracks. Lindley was awarded the win at Myrtle Beach Speedway in 2000 and followed up with a win two weeks later at Peach State Speedway.

Lindley added four wins to his resume last year with a pair of wins at Jennerstown and wins at Cayuga and Lonesome Pine. Lindley will challenge for the Southern Division top spot and run for the 2003 USAR Hooters ProCup Series championship.

"I know we missed the first race at USA International but I feel we have the team to get us back up in the point standings," Lindley said. "I really loved racing at the tracks in the North but I feel we can contend in the Southern Division as well."

The Jackaroo Sauces 250 presented by O'Reilly Auto Parts & Alltel will run this weekend at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL. Start time for the 250 lap race will be at 7:30 pm. For more information please contact USAR Media Relations at (843) 282-1356.
