Hanniford Turns Heads in Naturally Fresh 250

Cerra Gorda, NC - If a rookie can leave a race track anonymous, he's usually done a good job. Rookie Dange Hanniford didn't leave the Naturally Fresh 250 nameless, but it was only because he did a great job.

Hanniford, driver of the No. 22 BTS Tire & Wheel Distributor Ford, qualified 15th in the season-opening event and finished eighth in his first Hooters Pro Cup start.

"We're happy with the way we started out the season, especially since it was our first race together," said Rick Benton, RBR team manager. "The communication was there from the start and we clicked as a team. As time goes by, we'll continue to get better."

Although Hanniford drove a smooth race and avoided the carnage around him, he knows the team is capable of more.

"There's a lot of history with the No. 22 car and Ricky Benton Racing," said Hanniford. "I'm proud to be associated with them and run good, but we want to get back in victory lane."

Hanniford's next race will be the South Georgia 250 presented by Astro Exterminating & Termidor at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Cecil, Ga., on Saturday, March 11.
