Eddie Sharp Racing has acquired controlling interest in two Kevin Harvick Inc Camping World Truck Series teams, according to SceneDaily.com. Team owner Kevin Harvick recently announced that he would be shutting down KHI at the end of the season.
ESR recently switched from Toyota to Chevrolet, and will run the nos. 8 and 33 trucks next season, with KHI retaining small interest in the teams so that ESR can use the owner’s points.
Drivers for the team are expected to be announced at a later date. KHI drivers Ron Hornaday and Nelson Piquet Jr are both said to be looking for 2012 rides. Piquet has his own funding and sponsors.
In the deal, KHI will retain control of the owner’s points of the no. 2 truck.
