Pro Cup Regulars Hope for Derby Glory
Plenty of Drivers With Ties To Hooters Cup Are At Five Flags This Week
While the Hooters Pro Cup Series will be heading to Florida next week as part of the Performance Racing Industry trade show, a horde of Pro Cup drivers are already in the Sunshine State, trying to add their name to the list of winners in the prestigious Snowball Derby.
However, several Pro Cup veterans already have their names etched in history. Bobby Gill and Gary St. Amant have won the historic race twice and Clay Rogers has one victory.
St. Amant won the event in 1992 and 2000, while Gill won the race in 1993 and 1997. Clay Rogers is the defending winner of the event.
All three are back again this season, but many more familiar names in the Pro Cup ranks will be trying to join their comrades as Snowball winners this year
Pro Cup regulars Benny Gordon, Randy Gentry, Matt Hawkins, Jeff Fultz and Gary Helton are on the entry list for the event.
Others drivers that have competed in the Hooters Pro Cup Series over the past couple of years entered in the Derby include: Shane Hall, Brian Scott, Jeremy Pate, Dwayne Buggay, John Wes Townley, Joey Logano and Steven Wallace.
SPEED51.com will have Snowball Derby coverage all weekend.
