Kevin Harvick Inc. Adds Sponsor Copart Inc. to Its Nationwide Program

Horn FanSenior Writer IMay 26, 2009

Kevin Harvick Inc. has announced that Copart Inc. has expanded it's sponsorship program with the team to include seven Nationwide races where they'll sponsor the No. 33 car.

They already are a sponsor for Ron Hornaday in the Camping World Truck Series, where they sponsored him at Kansas and will be on board in four other races.

Copart Inc. is an online vehicle re-marketing company that allows buyers from all over the world to look on their website, featuring a myriad of vehicles from classics, early, and late model cars, trucks, SUV's, motorcycles, boats, snowmobiles, jet skis, and recreational vehicles.

Basically, if it drives they have it listed on their site, plus they sell vehicles for parts or just specific parts.

"Copart recently came on board the No. 33 Chevy Silverado with Ron Hornaday in the Truck Series, and I'm able to join Ron as a representative of the Copart colors with their expanded relationship at KHI to the No. 33 Nationwide Series car," said KHI co-owner Harvick.

"To be able to help bring new business into NASCAR is what we are all about. We've proven at KHI that we are competitive both on and off the track by bringing great opportunities to our sponsors."

They'll sponsor three different drivers with the seven race package: (of course) Harvick, Ryan Newman, and Kelly Bires.

"We are excited to expand our relationship with KHI and get the word out to the Nationwide Series fans, as well as the Camping World Truck Series fans, that Copart is the best place to find cars," said Copart President Jay Adair.

"NASCAR fans love cars and we have more than 50,000 cars each day for them to choose from. Copart and KHI are a winning combination!"

Here's the schedule when Copart will be on the No. 33 and who's driving.

May 30—Dover—Kevin Harvick
Jun. 13—Kentucky—Kelly Bires
Jun. 27—New Hampshire—Kevin Harvick
Aug. 8—Watkins Glen—Kevin Harvick or J.R. Fitzpatrick
Sept. 26—Dover—Ryan Newman
Oct. 24—Memphis—Kelly Bires
Nov. 21—Homestead—Ryan Newman

I'm excited to see my favorite NASCAR team, being KHI, land another sponsor to be on board on races that, until Copart, we'd have seen a black No. 33.

It's important since they are racing for the Owner's Championship in the Nationwide, and I'm hoping Happy and Delana can slay Goliath to get the hardware at Homestead.
