The owner of the Kevin Harvick Inc. (KHI) team also celebrated the successful debut of the Champion-sponsored No. 33 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Ron Hornaday, which finished seventh.
Harvick became the first driver to win a race in all three NASCAR national series at MIS after taking the lead on the final restart and outpacing Timothy Peters (No. 17 Toyota Tundra) in a thrilling green-white-checkered finish. It was his second Truck Series win in just four starts this year.
“Kevin and the entire KHI organization put on a great show right in our backyard,” said Michael Proud, marketing director, North America, for Southfield, Mich.-based Federal-Mogul. “Federal-Mogul and the Champion spark plug team are proud to be associated with one of NASCAR’s premier drivers and team owners.”
In addition to his success in the Truck Series, Harvick stands third in 2011 Sprint Cup Series points with three wins and six top-five and 11 top-10 finishes. His No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet, owned by Richard Childress Racing, is powered by "Performance Driven" Champion spark plugs, as are KHI’s two NASCAR Nationwide cars and three Camping World Truck Series trucks.
