Bobby Hamilton Racing announces sponsorship with Square D for 2003.
MT JULIET, Tenn., (Jan. 7, 2003) - NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series owner Bobby Hamilton and sponsor Square D announce today the two are combining forces for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season. Square D will be the primary sponsor of the No. 4 Dodge displaying a commemorative paint scheme of the SQUARE D brand's 100th anniversary, and Hamilton has been named as the full-time driver.
"This just makes sense for me," Hamilton said. "I've worked with Square D for the past two years and we have a tremendous relationship. When they talked about coming on board as a sponsor of our truck, I told them without hesitation, 'If you sponsor it, I will drive it.'"
The 45-year old Nashville, Tenn. native set out in late 1998 to build a winning NASCAR team, and with the help of DaimlerChrysler and Dodge Motorsports, his dream has come true. In only four years since Bobby Hamilton Racing was established, Hamilton's teams have garnered nine wins and 15 pole positions. The teams also added 37 top-five and 74 top-10 finishes to its already impressive statistics.
"I'm working hard to establish a top-notch truck program at Bobby Hamilton Racing," Hamilton said. "It's the future for me and my family. I'm happy to bring a sponsor like Square D on board. It's a first-class operation. The racing program they've built over the years is tremendous. I hope our team can help them continue to grow in 2003.
"We want to start this year out with a bang," Hamilton continued. "I anticipate the best with this package. I feel confident that with Square D, Dodge and Bobby Hamilton Racing we can win."
Hamilton, who enters his fifth year as team owner in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, will start this season with his sights set on one goal - to be in contention for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series championship. In only 24 starts, he has two wins, three poles, five top-five and eight top-10 finishes under his belt.
"NASCAR has been a very effective way to reach our target audiences," said Chris Richardson, president and CEO of Schneider Electric's North American Division, best known by its flagship SQUARE D brand. "The Craftsman Truck Series sponsorship will give us the best of both worlds, prime exposure with a key audience and targeted hospitality opportunities. In addition, with Bobby Hamilton as our driver and his past success in truck racing, we'll be a real contender for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Championship."
