Loudon, NH — As New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s only three-time and back-to-back winner in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Ron Hornaday, Jr. will come to New Hampshire in September to continue his record-setting domination.
Hornaday became the first repeat winner in the Camping World Truck Series at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in 2007, 11 years after winning the inaugural Truck Series race at the speedway in 1996.
Last September, Hornaday earned his third victory at the speedway, along with the distinction of being the first back-to-back Truck Series race winner at the track.
Winning in New Hampshire has also been important to Hornaday’s success. In two of the three seasons he’s won in New Hampshire, Hornaday has gone on to win the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship. In his career, Hornaday has four championships and 42 victories.
He’s not slowing down either. The winningest driver in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series history, Hornaday has visited victory lane four times in 2009, including a win on his birthday at the Milwaukee Mile. As an encore, the 51-year-old won again the following week at Memphis Motorsports Park, and made it three in a row last week at Kentucky. He is currently the Series points leader.
“New Hampshire Motor Speedway has been a very good track for the No. 33 team for the past few years,” said Hornaday. “It’s pretty cool that I am the only three time winner [in the Truck Series] at that track. There are a lot of other drivers who have had a lot of success there, my boss [Kevin Harvick] being one of them. I don’t know if we can make it three in a row, but we will sure try.”
