Although Ron Hornaday’s 2010 season was somewhat of a disappointment in comparison to his stellar Championship winning year in 2009, Kevin Harvick Inc. announced today that the four time Camping World Truck Series Champion, has signed a multi year agreement to compete in the number 33 Cherolet Silverado and compete for his fifth career Truck Series Championship.
“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.”
The 2011 season will be Hornaday’s seventh full time season in the Camping World Truck Series for KHI. Hornaday has made 273 starts and is the series winingest driver with 47 victories. He has earned 4 truck seies championships in 2009, 2007, 1998, and 1996. The last two of which were won with KHI.
“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.”
