Hornaday Wins at Dover; Prepares for ASA Midwest Tour

DAYTONA BEACH, FL (June 4, 2007) -- Ron Hornaday collected his 31st NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series win at the Dover International Speedway Friday. He led 91 laps of the AAA Insurance 200 en route to his second victory of the season. Hornaday started the race back in the fifteenth spot and won by 7.009 seconds.

"I'm not a points racer until it comes down to the end,'' Hornaday said. "If people knew how bad I was when we qualified, then today was a championship quality race.'' Hornaday will be driving a Heat N Glo sponsored second car prepared by Matt Maynard Racing as a teamate to Touring Star Dave Feiler in four Nascar Star Summer Shootout Events.

Travis Kvapil also advanced fourteen positions from his starting spot to finish third in the race, Tim Sauter finished seventeenth, and Erik Darnell eighteenth. Kvapil also competed in the NASCAR Busch Series Dover 200 on Saturday and finished 31st. Scott Wimmer was more fortunate in the Busch race, taking a podium position in third place.

Kvapil, Sauter, Wimmer, and Darnell, along with Chris Wimmer and Johnny Sauter, will be taking on the best Super Late Model drivers in the region Tuesday June 12 at Wisconsin's Dells Raceway Park in the American Speed Association Kwik Trip Midwest Tour presented by Echo Outdoor Power Equipment Back Home 100. Hornaday will join the Tour on July 3 at Wisconsin's LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway in a NASCAR Star Summer Shootout event with Johnny Sauter, Steve Grissom and more stars to be announced.

General admission for the Back Home 100 at Dells Raceway Park will be $24 for adults, $15 for students and seniors, and children under 10 are free with a paid adult admission.
