Harvick signs Hornaday to multiyear extension

Kevin Harvick Inc. signed Ron Hornaday to a multiyear extension

to drive in NASCAR’s Trucks Series.

The 52-year-old driver will return to the No. 33 Chevrolet next

season. Sponsorship was not announced on Friday.

Hornaday has been with KHI since 2005, and won two of his four

championships with the organization. He’s also the series’

winningest driver with 47 victories.

”Ron has been an integral part of our truck series program

since he joined KHI in 2005,” said team co-owner Kevin Harvick.

”He has driven our organization to two truck series championships

and I firmly believe that we will continue to compete for

championships with Hornaday as our driver.”

Hornaday went into Friday night’s race at Phoenix International

Raceway seventh in the series standings with two victories this

year.

”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,” Hornaday said.
