YATES RACING AND HALL OF FAME RACING ANNOUCE ALIGNMENT IN NASCAR
CONCORD, N.C. (January 13, 2009) -- Yates Racing and Hall of Fame Racing (HOF) announced today an alignment of their two teams. Under the agreement, Yates Racing will operate the No. 96 NASCAR Sprint Cup entry of Hall of Fame Racing for the full 2009 Sprint Cup schedule. Doug Yates and Max Jones will continue as co-owners of Yates Racing, while Tom Garfinkel and Jeff Moorad will continue as co-owners of Hall of Fame Racing. With the recent expansion of the Yates Racing facilities, the No. 96 Ford Fusion will operate out of the Yates Racing complex, located in Concord, N.C.
"This partnership with Hall of Fame is a great stepping stone for the Yates organization," said Max Jones, co-owner and General Manager of Yates Racing. "Through this partnership, we are able to continue the expansion of our shop and field another Sprint Cup entry. We, along with Ford Racing, welcome Hall of Fame Racing and look forward to a very successful season."
"Jeff Moorad and I knew it would take time to construct the right model to improve our competitive position in the sport and we think we've come a long way to achieving that through our association with Yates Racing," said Tom Garfinkel, co-owner of Hall of Fame Racing. "We're proud to be associated with Doug and Max and Ford Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series."
The Hall of Fame Racing entry will make its competitive debut at Daytona International Speedway on Thursday, February 12 during the Gatorade 150 qualifying races.
