Morgan-McClure Motorsports, Inc., announced Wednesday that Bobby Hamilton has signed to drive the No. 4 Kodak MAX Film Monte Carlo out of the Abingdon, Va., shops for two more seasons on the NASCAR Winston Cup circuit. Team owner Larry McClure said Morgan-McClure Motorsports expects Hamilton to park the Kodak Monte Carlo in victory lane soon. “Bobby is getting more and more comfortable in our cars, and it’s showing up on the track,” McClure said. “The team has been working hard all season, and we know we’re capable of winning races. “Hopefully, signing Bobby for two more seasons will stop all these rumors that have been going through the garage about him driving for someone else. Bobby won last year in our car, and he’s confident he can do it again. In fact, you can see his confidence getting stronger and stronger each week.” Hamilton has three NASCAR Winston Cup victories to his credit, including a win in only his eighth start last season behind the wheel of the No. 4 Kodak MAX Film Monte Carlo at Martinsville. The 1991 NASCAR Winston Cup rookie of the year finished 10th in the 1998 Winston Cup standings. He’s currently 14th in the ‘99 standings with eight races remaining and has finished 11th or better the past three races. “We’re really starting to come together as a team,” Hamilton said. “These guys have been working hard all season, and it’s a pleasure to work with them. Larry and everyone at Morgan-McClure have been great to me, and we’re going to keep working until we end up in victory lane. It’s great to know your future is secure for two more seasons. We’ll give it all we’ve got the rest of this season, and then we’ll come out smoking with that new Monte Carlo next year at Daytona.”
