Rheem and NTS Motorsports have announced a partnership, to take effect later this month, that will see Rheem provide sponsorship of Ron Hornaday for two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races in 2014. Rheem will be the primary sponsor for the four-time NASCAR champion for the Sept. 27 race in Las Vegas and Oct. 31 race in Texas.

Hornaday has been out of action since late August when Turner Scott Motorsports shut down the No. 30 truck Hornaday had been driving. At the time Hornaday was fourth in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship standings.

Rheem has been working to find the best available truck equipment, crew and technical expertise in an effort to return Hornaday to the Truck Series before the end of the 2014 season. Rheem had sponsored Hornaday prior to the recent shutdown of the No. 30 Turner Scott Motorsports team.

Hornaday’s return has been made possible through a cooperative effort between Rheem and NTS Motorsports, who will supply Chevrolet Silverado trucks and crew for the races, along with technical support provided by Richard Childress Racing (RCR).

“Rheem is pleased to play a part in bringing Ron Hornaday back to where he belongs — that is, racing trucks to win and bringing excitement and enjoyment to Camping World Truck Series fans. None of this would have been possible without the solid support of NTS Motorsports and RCR. We all welcome Ron back and can’t wait to see him back in the saddle,” said Ed Raniszeski, managing director of Rheem Motorsports.

“NTS Motorsports has had a long standing relationship with Ron Hornaday” said Bob Newberry, owner of NTS Motorsports. “Hornaday is a proven four-time champion and I’m glad we have the opportunity to work with him again.”
