CLERMONT, Indiana (July 27, 2011) - - On the strength of four top-fives and five consecutive top-10 finishes in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, CGH Motorsports announced today that Hampton Farms has joined the team as a primary marketing partner for Chad Hackenbracht in Thursday night’s Ansell Protective Gloves 200 at Lucas Oil Raceway (LOR) at Indianapolis.

The Barnes family began farming peanuts in 1917 in northeastern North Carolina. Severn Peanut Company, a peanut “sheller,” was formed in 1946. In 1989, Hampton Farms was formed to roast and package the peanuts, completing the full circle of service.

Hampton Farms is the leading brand of in-shell peanuts in the country, sold in supermarkets, club stores, mass merchants, & sport stadiums across the country. Hampton Farms peanuts are primarily sold in the produce department, with the fresh, healthy snacks. The company is currently promoting their newest product, Hickory SMOKEHOUSE Flavor In-Shell Peanuts.

This is a brand new flavor which was launched in May of 2011. It has a great Hickory Smoked Flavor that you’ve got to try. It is the perfect addition to summer cookouts and junior league sporting events.

Hampton Farms also supplies their product to Tastee Apples, another marketing partner in the CGH Motorsports camp.

Tom Nolan of Hampton Farms commented on the announcement. “Hampton Farms is proud to sponsor Chad Hackenbracht as this impressive young driver continues to drive like a racing veteran with top-10 and top-five finishes. He is exciting to watch, and we’re looking forward to seeing him drive the first Hampton Farms In-Shell Peanut car! We’re excited to partner with Chad as he breaks down the old bad-luck superstition, surrounding in-shell peanuts and racing, and goes for the win on July 28 at Lucas Oil Raceway.”

“It’s great to have Hampton Farms on-board for LOR,” said 19-year old Hackenbracht. “I’ve been familiar with Hampton Farms through their partnership with Tastee Apples. To now have the opportunity to bring them into the ARCA Racing Series as a marketing partner is fantastic. The car is going to look neat and we’re hoping that we’ll spice up the competition with a win on Thursday night.”

The 12th race of the ARCA Racing Series season unites the sanctioning tour back to the Clermont, Indiana-based short track after a 25-year hiatus. While Hackenbracht hasn’t had the opportunity to embrace the short track, he is leaning on momentum and his team to once again put their No. 58 Hampton Farms Chevrolet Impala SS in contention for their first career ARCA victory.

“I’ve never raced there, but I’ve seen the place many of times on television when the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series have raced there and we watched some of the ARCA teams test a couple weeks ago,” the New Philadelphia, Ohio native explained. “We have to approach this week much like we did at Berlin. We have to unload with an open-mind and utilize the track time to our advantage. Hopefully we’ll be able to start near the front and then just keep the fenders intact to have a shot at the win.”

It’s Hot In Here: Continuing a personal angle from Chad Hackenbracht; at Iowa Speedway, the teams embraced ridiculously hot temperatures which left everyone including Chad Hackenbracht searching for shade and cooler conditions. Though, inside his No. 58 CGH Motorsports Chevrolet Impala SS it felt more like an oven as the heat continued to intensify. While Hackenbracht did complete all 200 laps at Iowa Speedway, he realizes that there our other precautions he can take to ensure he keeps himself stable. Beginning at LOR, Hackenbracht is packing a new cooling system purchased from Penske Racing that will offer him a cool breeze in the cockpit.

Hackenbracht explained, “I was prepared for the Iowa heat but yet I wasn't. I was prepared by being fully hydrated and had plenty of nutrients in me. But I wasn’t prepared to experience the intense heat that we did, just simply because I had never been so hot before.

In the car it felt horrible. The first part of the race was not too bad, but by lap 50, after my cool box had gone out it was extremely hot. I tried to put my shield up to get some cooler air in that way, but it didn't work, it just blew hot air onto my face. But at the same time with my shield down, my breathe would bounce off of the visor and back at me, so it was a lose; lose situation no matter what I did.

Something I can take from Iowa Speedway and use in the future is the hydrating. I had never really put much thought into pounding down fluids until this year and especially out in Iowa.”

The Ansell Protective Gloves 200 (200 laps / 137 miles) is the 12th of 19 events on the 2011 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule. The eighth ever ARCA race at Lucas Oil Raceway is a one-day show.
