Chad Hackenbracht Receives Support From NASCAR Champion

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (February 12, 2011) - - When a ARCA rookie like Chad Hackenbracht receives some advice from a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) champion, you better believe he takes every word to heart.

So, when Ron Hornaday Jr., driver of the No. 33 Kevin Harvick Inc. Chevrolet Silverado strolled through the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards garage on Thursday and made a trip to the No. 58 Tastee Apple Chevrolet Impala SS garage stall, Hackenbracht was more than willing to inhale advice from one of NASCAR’s finest.

“I’ve always had a lot of respect for Ron (Hornaday Jr.),” said Hackenbracht, who will make his second career start at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway Saturday afternoon in the Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200. “He isn’t shy to tell you what to expect or what to prepare for or even how the car looks. As a rookie team, we really embrace that kind of support.”

Hornaday’s presence around the Concord, North Carolina-based team is stemmed from the relationship of CGH Motorsports General Manager and Director of Marketing Jordan Dahl, whose marketing ties with American Marketing Group (AMG) is linked in with KHI.

“It means a lot to me for Jordan to stretch his neck out and bring someone like Hornaday over to our side of the fence, all in an effort to make me a better race car driver,” sounded Hackenbracht, who is attempting to run a full ARCA Racing Series schedule in 2011. “Believe me, I take in everything that Ron says and I don’t take any of it for granted. I’m hoping this relationship is just the start of the things to come.”

Hornaday has remained nestled around the CGH Motorsports garage area and hauler talking to the New Philadelphia, Ohio native through the week preparing him mentally for today’s season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

In addition to Tastee Apple, Axel Fuel, the Official Energy Drink of CGH Motorsports, Metal Parts Manufacturing, Portable Shades, R2C Performance and Xflex Racers Tape join the family-owned team as associate marketing partners in Saturday’s season-opener.

CGH Motorsports is actively seeking additional marketing partners for the full 2011 ARCA Racing Series schedule. Single, multi and full-season placements are available on the team’s No. 58 entries. Interested parties are urged to contact Jordan Dahl at 570.234.5449 or jordandahl@cghmotorsports.com.

The Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona (80 laps / 200 miles) is the first of 19 events on the 2011 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule. The 48th ARCA race held at Daytona is a three-day show. The event will take the green flag later today shortly after 4:30 p.m. The race will be televised live on SPEED with additional race coverage including live timing and scoring and radio broadcast through the ARCA Racing Network (ARN) online at arcaracing.com. All times are local.
