SHORT TRACK: Finally, A Suitable Replacement for the Hooters Pro Cup Series

The Hooters ProCup Series was on top of the world in 2001.

Brian Vickers was graduating to NASCAR after a three-year Pro Cup career. Joey Logano would join Hooters a few seasons later. Every short track superstar in the eastern half of the country knew that Hooters was the place to be. Johnny Rumley, Bobby Gill, Jay Fogleman, Jeff Agnew, Michael Ritch… they all knew that the money, the prestige and the path to the top went through Hooters Pro Cup.

(Part 3 of a 3-part series) John McComb ordered a new car for 1967. The choice was easy. Given his success in the 1966 Group 2 Mustang, he ordered a new notchback for 1967 to pick up where he left off with the Shelby program.

The 1967 Mustang was the model’s first major redesign and the car gained both size and weight. McComb didn’t care for either.
