Cleveland GA (June 4, 2008) If you would have asked Jason Hogan on Monday what he had planned for this weekend, he would have more than likely said hanging out on the lake somewhere or working around the shop. Instead Hogan and his Jason Hogan Motorsports team made the decision early Tuesday morning to plan a trip to Rougemont, North Carolina to attempt their first Pro All Stars Series (PASS) start of the ’08 season at the Orange County Speedway in the Orange Blossom Special.

“We didn’t really make the decision to go up there until early this week. We couldn’t decide between running the pro late model car in our own backyard at Lanier or go on up to Orange County. We figured with the big money race they (PASS) are having in July we needed to go up there and see how good we are out of the box. I know a lot of guys tested there last week so they may have a little bit of a head start when it comes to tuning the car off the trailer, but we shouldn’t have any problems finding speed ourselves during practice because we ran pretty well there last year,” commented Georgia native Hogan.


Last season Jason came away from the Orange Blossom 150 with a solid eighth place finish after taking the green flag from third. However; this race will only mark Hogan’s third super late model start of the season as he has mostly competed in pro late model races for Florida owner Kelly Hosch and sponsor Water Works Car Wash.


“We’ll be running number 92 at Orange County. I know lately it seems like every time we show up at the race track we have a new number but that doesn’t really matter to me too much, it just may confuse a few fans that have seen me race the 92 over the years. I haven’t raced as much as I have in years past mainly because I’ve been helping out a few guys with their cars some so it just doesn’t leave a lot of extra time to race,” stated Hogan.


Don’t be fooled though. While the commitment to compete at Orange County may have come late, the Jason Hogan Motorsports team is more than prepared. It’s this kind of preparation that has had many of his competitors over the years asking for help and advice.  


“We always keep our cars ready, that’s something I learned years ago. You never know, sometimes we just decide to go racing so we go,” joked Hogan.
