NASCAR driver and co-owner Kevin Harvick along with representatives from JEGS High Performance will be making a special announcement at 2PM on Wednesday, June 23rd at the JEGS Race Shop in Delaware, Ohio.
It will mean one of three things, either Harvick and wife Delana are buying into a NHRA team, they are set to announce JEGS as Ron Hornaday Jr. sponsor on the No. 33 or they will be sponsoring both KHI entries in the Trucks and it's lone Nationwide Series's entry in 2011.
Of course Hornaday, would start being sponsored by JEGS the remainder of the 2010 season and share the sponsorship with the eight races that already are sponsored.
KHI just lost Longhorn to the new FDA tobacco rule. They have half of the 16 remaining truck races sponsored and still looking for more sponsors for the four-time champion.
So the latter makes a lot of sense, but it's no secret that Happy is a NHRA fan and has been interested in starting or buying into a existing team.
All of KHI's sponsor deals end in 2010, so it makes sense that JEGS would jump into NASCAR in it's two lower series.
Legendary Motorsports announcer Paul Page, the voice of the NHRA will be the master of ceremonies and mediator for the event.
While there is still the chance that JEGS could become Harvick's new Cup sponsor, but that's doubtful since RCR wasn't named in a release about this event.
The race shop, located next to JEGS headquarters, has been in lock down the last couple of months and only a few employees have access to the facility.
It would be cool to see the long standing NHRA sponsor, make the leap to NASCAR as not only Horn's sponsor but also affiliating themselves with KHI.
The No. 33 truck will look sharp with the JEGS paint scheme of a yellow body, and with black trim.
We'll know for sure which scenario will happen with JEGS and KHI on the 23rd.
