Lyndon Amick has been released by Carroll Racing, handing the No. 26 ride to former Craftsman Truck Series Champion, Ron Hornaday.

Amick, whose best finish of the short lived 2002 season, is a 14th place run at Rockingham, moved into the No. 26 Carroll Racing Chevy following Bobby Hamilton Jr.'s departure at the end of the 2001 season.

Hornaday has been making his rounds the past few years around all three of NASCAR's top levels. Moving from the CTS division, he ran as a Raybestos Rookie contender in the Winston Cup Series in 2001, only to be replaced by Stacy Compton during the off-season.

So far this season, Hornaday's presence in racing has been fielded by former truck rival, Hendrick Motorsports. Hornaday ran the 2002 season opener at Daytona in the CTS, and was than asked to step in for injured Ricky Hendrick following his shoulder injury at Las Vegas.

Hornaday will make his first appearance in the car this weekend at the New Hampshire International Speedway.
