NTN Bearings to support HRPWorld.com's #42 King Motorsports Acura at Daytona.
North Canton, OH -- At the Daytona season opener for the Grand-Am Cup, NTN Bearings will be providing their support to HRPWorld.com's #42 King Motosports Acura.
NTN Bearing manufactures and distributes a wide range of ball and roller bearings, serving the automotive, industrial and recreational markets. Founded in Japan in 1918, NTN has production facilities throughout the world including Germany, Taiwan, Australia, Canada and the United States. NTN Bearings is an O.E.M. supplier to Honda/Acura throughout North America.
NTN Corporation with over 80 years of experience in precision and anti-friction bearing design, application, engineering, and manufacturing processes, has grown into a multinational company with sales exceeding $3.5 billion.
Drivers for the NTN Bearings supported #42 King Motorsports Acura will be young rookie sensation Mark Swain and team veteran Harold Linville.
"I am looking forward to having Harold and Mark as teammates at HRPWorld.com Racing," stated Will Nonnamaker, the 2001 and 2002 Grand-Am Cup ST II champion. "Harold raced with us at Virginia last year in the rain and did a very solid job keeping the King Motorsports Acura on the track when many, many others slipped off the track. Mark attended the Daytona Test Days and did an excellent job getting up to speed. Since Mark will be running the full season, I feel he is the pre-season favorite for the ST II Class Rising Star award."
Last season the #42 HRPWorld.com entry finished in 3rd place in the ST II class Team Championship. With the support of NTN Bearings, look for the King Motorsports Acura to continue that trend to even higher heights in 2003.
The HRPWorld.com - King Motorsports Acuras will be supported through partnerships with AEM, American Honda, Denso, Grill Craft, Hawk Brake, Horizon Audio, Mugen Sport, NTN Bearings, TheRaceSite.com, Waikem & VOLK Wheels.
