Hornaday Signs With Joe Denette Motorsports

Joe Denette Motorsports, a rookie team in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, announced today that four-time series champion, Ron Hornaday, Jr., will drive the the team's No. 9 Chevrolet powered by Pro Motor Engines in 2012. Hornaday will be teamed at JDM with veteran crew chief, Jeff Hensley.

"We are proud to have a champion like Ron Hornaday joining our team," said team owner Joe Denette. "It's not every day that a young organization gets the opportunity to bring a veteran driver like Hornaday on board. He will bring a lot of experience and an entirely new dimension to our team. We are dedicated to winning races and contending for a championship in 2012, and we think our decision to bring Hornaday and Jeff Hensley to JDM shows that commitment."

Hornaday, a 14-year veteran of the series, has amassed 51 career victories, 27 pole awards, 146 top-five and 208 top-10 finishes.

"I'm very excited for the opportunity to work with JDM next season," said Hornaday. "This is a young team and they have put a lot of the right people in place to win races and compete for a championship in 2012. I'm honored to continue my relationship with Chevrolet and I'm looking forward to a successful 2012 season."

A sponsorship announcement for Hornaday and the No. 9 JDM entry is expected in the coming weeks. JDM also plans to run a second entry in 2012 for selected events.

  1. Is Jason White going to be with JDM, because they never mentioned him in the announcement.
