Fogleman scores South Boston Top five

Jay Fogleman, the Short Track Shark, drove the JFco Motorsports, Lucas Oil Ford No. 4 to a fifth-place finish in the Lucas Oil 250 presented by Pepsi USAR Hooters ProCup North Division race on Aug. 2 at Big Daddy's South Boston (Va.) Speedway.

The partisan crowd, which included 365 people who attended the successful Jay Fogleman Fan/Crew/Sponsor Frenzy BBQ prior to the race, witnessed a driving clinic as Fogleman charged from 10th to fifth in the final 10 laps after pitting for right-side tires during a late-race caution.

"We kept adjusting on the car," Fogleman said. "The guys worked hard all day, and we finally got the car we needed."

Despite the top-five run, the three-time winner on the circuit this year felt some disappointment after the race.

"It wasn't a bad weekend," Fogleman observed, "but it wasn't what we wanted. We wanted to win every ProCup race in the Commonwealth of Virginia."

Despite the letdown, Fogleman, who sits fourth in the tight USAR Hooters ProCup North Division points race, always looks ahead.

"We have a new Ford to roll out for Lucas Oil and JFco Motorsports when we get to Illiana Motor Speedway," Fogleman said about the Aug. 9 race on the Indiana short track. "We're hoping to have a good run there."
