After earning his 12th top 10 of the season, Ron Hornaday Jr. comes to New Hampshire Motor Speedway in search of his fourth win at the track, third of the season and 50th of his career in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Hornaday, driver of the No. 33 Cooked Perfect Meatballs Chevrolet for Kevin Harvick Inc., visited victory lane just two races ago when he took home his second win of the season in the Good Sam Club 200 at Atlanta.

Currently fifth in the point standings, in 18 races this season, Hornaday has two wins, eight top 5s and 12 top 10s. He has three victories at NHMS (2008, 2007 and 1996).

Hornaday, who is in his sixth year with KHI, will be without a ride after the 2011 season ends. Harvick and wife DeLana announced they would no longer be participating in the NCWTS past this season in order to focus on Harvick’s Cup career. Harvick is currently leading the Cup points.

A win for Hornaday at NHMS this weekend might possibly mean his final win for KHI, but it would also mark the 50th win of his career.

Hornaday signed on to drive for KHI in 2005 and has earned four championships in his career. Looking for a possible sixth at NHMS, Hornaday looks at NHMS as the place to make it possible.

“I really like Loudon,” said Hornaday. “I’ve got three wins there, and it’s a track where you will have a lot of side-by-side racing. That always puts on a great show for the fans. You’ve really got to have the whole package at this race track to come through the field. Track position is critical, so hopefully we will have a fast Cooked Perfect Meatballs Chevrolet in qualifying and be able to start up front.”
