Kevin Harvick and Crew Chief Part Ways

Kevin Harvick Inc. (KHI) announced today that Rick Ren, crew chief of the No. 33 truck driven by four-time Truck Series champion Ron Hornaday, has left the organization to pursue management opportunities within the sport.

“Ron (Hornaday) and Rick (Ren) have been a powerful combination over the last few years in the Truck Series," said KHI co-owner Kevin Harvick. “With success comes opportunity and we wish him well in the next step of his career.

“We have put together a solid foundation with our Truck Series program from top to bottom," Harvick continued. “The guy behind the wheel is the catalyst of everything that has turned this into a championship-caliber team and I feel confident that our program will continue to be successful."

Harvick said an announcement regarding Hornaday’s crew chief for 2010 could be expected as early as next week. Hornaday has won two out of the last three Truck Series championships and is the first four-time champion (2009, 2007, 1998, 1996) in Truck Series’ history.
