: Might we see you in a Pro Mod or a Pro Street car next season or will you stick to Stock, Super Stock and bracket racing?

Jeg: Well, I admit that driving a “Get Screened America” Pro Mod has crossed my mind but, truthfully, my plans are to compete next year at some high-dollar bracket races with my dragster and maybe a few races in my Stock Eliminator car.
