Hornaday, KHI Agree To Extension
KERNERSVILLE, N.C. — Ron Hornaday, Jr. isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
The four-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion has signed a multi-year contract extension to remain with Kevin Harvick, Inc. as the driver of the No. 33 Chevrolet Silverado.
“We are very excited and proud to have Ron Hornaday back behind the wheel of the No. 33 truck,” said KHI co-owner Kevin Harvick. “Ron has been an integral part of our Truck Series program since he joined KHI in 2005. He has driven our organization to two Truck Series championships, and I firmly believe that we will continue to compete for Truck Series championships with Hornaday as our driver.”
Hornaday, a 52-year-old native of Palmdale, Calif., has 47 Truck Series victories to his credit, including 21 since joining KHI in 2005. He has two victories this season and is seventh in the series standings with two races left.
“I couldn’t be happier to be back driving for KHI in 2011,” said Hornaday. “I can’t thank Kevin and DeLana enough for the opportunities that they have given me over the past six years. We’ve had a lot of success together in the Truck Series. This season hasn’t been exactly what we wanted, but that just gives me more drive than ever to go after a fifth Truck Series championship with the No. 33 team in 2011.”
Sponsorship details will be announced later.
