Kevin Harvick Inc. officially announced they have signed Copart Inc. to a five race sponsorship deal for their No. 33 truck driven by Ron Hornaday.
Copart Inc. is a online remarketing company that formed in 1982, sells more than one million vehicles each year and allows members to browse 50,000 vehicles a day on line.
They look like a company that specializes in holding auctions to sell salvaged vehicles for parts, but also used vehicles for licensed dismantlers, rebuilders, used vehicle dealers, insurance companies, banks, finance companies, fleet operators, dealers, the general public, and others all over the United States.
"During these tough economic times we are proud to be able to foster new relationships and expose new businesses to the power of the NASCAR market," KHI co-owner Kevin Harvick said in a news release.
The schedule for the Copart sponsorship starts with the O'Reilly Auto Parts 250 at Kansas Speedway on April 25th. Then they'll be on the No. 33 truck for races at Milwaukee, New Hampshire, Las Vegas, and Talladega.
This should be great news for the Truck Series title sponsor Camping World who also is in it's final year as a sponsor for the No. 33 KHI.
We'll only see Camping World on Horn's No. 33 in three of the remaining 21 races left on the 2009 truck series schedule.
As Horn's No. 33 KHI Chevy will have the Longhorn brand on board for eight races, the VFW for five races, Copart for five races, and Camping World for three races.
