Hornaday Gets Crew Chief
Kevin Harvick Inc. announced Thursday that Doug George has been appointed crew chief of the No. 33 Longhorn Chevrolet Silverado driven by four-time Camping World Truck Series champion Ron Hornaday.
George, who made the move to KHI in the off season, began 2010 as crew chief of the organization’s No. 2 Truck Series team with Cup Series veterans Elliott Sadler and Kevin Harvick splitting time behind the wheel.
“This is a really great opportunity to work with Ron and the No. 33 team,” George said. “Ron is a dedicated driver with goals to win races and championships. I’m really happy that Kevin and DeLana put their confidence in me to lead the No. 33 team. We are going to work hard to take the best equipment in the Truck Series to victory lane week in and week out. Ron and I have known each other forever, both as competitors and friends. I look forward to working with him in 2010.”
Hornaday, the series’ first four-time champion and all-time winningest driver with 45 victories, feels confident with George calling the shots.
“I really like Doug, he and I go way back,” said Hornaday. “I raced against Doug for the 1992 Southwest Tour championship. He was always a great competitor. He’s got a confidence about him that makes him likeable and a good leader. Knowing all of the experience that Doug has I feel really good that he is coming to join our team. I think he will be a great addition.”No Comment
