Comments: Under Jasper ownership, Pressley navigated the #77 Ford to his best career WC finish, qualifying for all 34 races.  If the team, in conjunction with Penske, can resolve some mechanical problems, Pressley's prospects look good in 2001.   Jasper stays on as primary sponsor for 2001 as car will sport new yellow paint scheme at Daytona.
