Jason Sarvis and RBR Team look strong at USA International.
RBR Team finishes 1st and 2nd.

Jason Sarvis in the #22 Naturally Fresh / Black's Tire Chevrolet Monte Carlo took home his first ever Hooter's Pro Cup Series win Saturday Night in Lakeland, Fl. Sarvis and the RBR Team were 2nd fastest all day in practice but decided to totally change the setup before qualifying. "We knew that we were good in practice but not necessary good enough to win, so we made some changes before qualifying and things worked out for us", said Sarvis. "We worked really hard in practice but did not have to make a single adjustment during the race."

Sarvis, starting on the pole, led 246 out of the 252 laps in the event, while giving up the lead only for a pit stop on lap 122. The RBR Pit Crew put Sarvis back out front where he never looked back in route to his 1st win. Teammate, Hal Goodson in the unsponsored #92, came home with a strong 2nd place run to put him back to 2nd in the USAR Championship Points. The win moves Sarvis into 4th in points only 23 points out of 3rd.

The next event will be at both Sarvis's and Goodson's home track the Myrtle Beach Speedway on June 15th. The Jackaroo 250 presented by Black's Tire Service will start at 7:30pm.
