John King Returns to SS Green Light Racing at Homestead

Following a successful debut back in Martinsville, SS Green Light Racing is proud to announce that Virginia's John King will be behind the wheel of the Fairway Ford No. 07 F-150 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Ford 200 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday, November 19th.

This will be the fourth NCWTS start of 2010 for the twenty-two year old driver having competed at Bristol and New Hampshire earlier in the season before finishing nineteenth in the SS Green Light No. 07 at Martinsville. Homestead will give the youngster his first opportunity to run on a track longer than a mile in length. John has completed 98% of the laps in his first three starts.

Three-time ASA National Champion Butch Miller will again oversee King's effort in the Fairway Ford No. 07 F-150 at Homestead. "John did a real nice job back at Martinsville," Miller said. "I think he is a quick learner and most importantly he listens. Homestead will be the largest track he has raced at, but I'm confident he'll adapt well."

"We had a great run together at Martinsville," John said. "I fell I worked really well with Butch and everyone on the team, I'm looking forward to this race even more than Martinsville. I'm excited to get to run on the mile and a half at Homestead, I've run a late model at Rockingham and the truck at Loudon, but this will be the biggest track I've been to."

I know the truck's going to be well prepared," King added. "We've also got a good Ernie Elliott Ford engine under the hood and we'll have the veteran guidance of Bobby Dotter and the SS Green Light team supporting me in the pits. Practice will be very important for us so I can run laps and get a good feel not only for the truck at high speeds, but also just to get a good feel for running on a track the size of Homestead.
