DOUGLAS MOTORSPORTS DOUBLES DOWN
CHAD HORD TO DRIVE SECOND AMSOIL F-150 IN BORGWARNER WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

Crandon, Wisconsin-Race fans will be seeing double this Labor Day weekend in what promises to be one of the biggest off-road races off all time. Douglas Motorsports will field two identical AMSOIL Kumho Ford F-150s in the BorgWarner World Championship Cup race. Two-time BorgWarner champ Scott Douglas will drive the number 7 AMSOIL Pro 4x4 and Pro Light champion Chad Hord will drive a matching Douglas Motorsports AMSOIL entry.

Douglas Motorsports team recently tested both trucks at Crandon and Chad Hord quickly proved the transition to a full-size 4x4 race truck with 900 horsepower will not be a problem. Team owner Scott Douglas was very pleased with his performance and Chad gained valuable seat time in the AMSOIL F- 150.

"Chad Hord is very deserving of this opportunity to drive one of the AMSOIL Ford F-150s from Douglas Motorsports," said Jeremy Meyer, AMSOIL Race Program Manager. "His program is top notch and he has the ability to compete with the best drivers in the sport at Crandon. AMSOIL has two cup winners on its Super Team in Mike Oberg (Baldwin Memorial Cup) and Scott Douglas (two-time BorgWarner Cup) and Chad has the talent to bring home a third. The Pro 4x4 class just got a lot deeper with Chad Hord running for this year's prize and the world will get to see it live on ABC."

That's right, for those who can't make it to Crandon's huge 40th Anniversary celebration, the 2009 BorgWarner Cup race will air live on ABC Sunday September 6th at 3:00 pm Central Standard Time.
