Daytona Beach, Fla. (2/15/2007) -- Bobby Hamilton Racing announces the management team decided by Bobby Hamilton Sr. before his death on January 7, 2007. This team consists of five people who were with Hamilton when he won his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Championship in 2004.
Lois Vance, Senior Vice President of First Tennessee Bank and Hamilton's long-time banker and friend, in her fiduciary responsibilities and trustee to the late Hamilton's will is acting and overseeing ownership operations of BHR.
Lori Hamilton, Hamilton's widow, is the direct contact for the race team both in house and at the race track. Her role as Sponsor Relations Manager, working directly with Fastenal and Dodge Motorsports, has not changed from previous years. The 2007 season marks her 11th year doing public relations and working with various entities in the sport.
Andy Dunlap, Operations Manager, is resuming his current duties at BHR which oversees day to day operations and race track procedures for both BHR Dodge entries. Dunlap, who was the first employee at BHR, has worked with Hamilton Sr. in numerous capacities, including one late model championship and his NCTS championship, since Hamilton's debut in racing.
Kip McCord, Dodge Engineering and Test Team Manager, is continuing his daily focus of working with Dodge Motorsports on their research and development/engineering program. McCord has been with BHR since 2000 and has previously served as General Manager and Crew Chief for the organization. He has a combined number of 12 NASAR Busch and Truck Series victories. Five of those wins came with rookie drivers.
Jeff White, Team Engineer and Crew Chief on the No. 18 Fastenal Dodge, is overseeing competition and on-track performance for both BHR Dodge entries. Hamilton's final decision before his passing was to name White as Crew Chief on the No. 18 Fastenal Dodge. White, one of the most sought after engineers in the garage, joined BHR in 2000 and was the Team Engineer when Hamilton won his NCTS championship. He has been a part of 15 of BHR's 19 victories.
The five person combination is overseeing the day to day operations and making decisions at the multi-truck team organization. The management team is committed to continuing his dream at BHR.
Bobby Hamilton Racing, along with Fastenal and Dodge Motorsports, will begin its 11th season this weekend at Daytona. The organization has one NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Championship, 19 wins, 21 poles, 78 top five and 155 top finishes.
