Terry Cook and HT Motorsports Join Forces for the 2007 Season

Martinsville, VA (January 2, 2007) GPg PR -- Put together a veteran driver, a veteran team owner and a past championship crew chief and what do you have? A winning combination according to Jim Harris, owner of the HT Motorsports No. 59 Toyota Tundra. Harris has named NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (NCTS) regular Terry Cook as the new wheelman for the No. 59 Toyota Tundra in the 2007 season.

Terry Cook began his career in the NCTS a little over a decade ago and has earned himself a place among NASCAR's top competitors posting six wins, seven poles, 26 top-five and 90 top-10 finishes. Cook also holds the record for the most consecutive starts in the NCTS beating out previous record holder Rick Crawford (210) with 222 starts.

At the close of the 2006 season, Terry Cook secured one win at Kansas Speedway and an eighth place standing in the overall driver point standings. He's looking forward to continuing his successful career at HT Motorsports.

"There is no doubt that we will have great success in 2007. Jim Harris has put together an all-star team with an already impressive record in the NCTS. I am really looking forward to working with HT Motorsports and am anxious to hit the high banks of Daytona with winning crew chief Danny Rollins calling the shots," explained Cook.

Crew chief Danny Rollins found a new home over at HT Motorsports mid-season last year and will continue to lead the No. 59 Toyota Tundra team into 2007. Rollins is no stranger to the NCTS as he led Bobby Hamilton Sr. to his first ever NCTS Championship in 2004.

"I enjoy working with Jim (Harris). He gives me the reigns to do whatever needs to be done. He just wants to win and he'll do whatever it takes to get there. It's a first class operation and now with the addition of Terry Cook all the pieces have fallen into place. Terry brings his experience, professionalism and eagerness to win to the table and I am anxious to work with him," remarked Rollins.

HT Motorsports made their way into the NASCAR arena five years ago and has since finished in the top-10 in over 40% of the races entered. Team owner, Jim Harris, had this to say about the new partnership, "I'm excited to welcome Terry and Amy Cook to the HT Motorsports organization. Past records indicate that the combination of veteran driver Terry Cook and past championship crew chief Danny Rollins will prove to be a winning combination. Look for the No. 59 Toyota Tundra in victory lane in 2007."
