Doug George was named the crew chief for the 33 Chevrolet Silverado of Ron Hornaday 18 years after and epic battle for the 1992 Southwest tour in which Hornaday edged George by 3 points for the title.
"I really like Doug, he and I go way back," Hornaday said. "I raced against Doug for the 1992 Southwest Tour championship. He was always a great competitor. He's got a confidence about him that makes him likeable and a good leader."
General Manager of KHI (Kevin Harvick Incorporated) Rick Carelli, was also part of the 1992 Southwest Tour Championship as he was one of the 3 drivers who had a shot at winning the title on the final race. This move by KHI only looks to further improve a Championship caliber team, other competitors beware.
