Hornaday wants to take Texas by horns
FORT WORTH, Texas June 8, 1999

Ron Hornaday will try to snap a series of bad luck runs at Texas Motor Speedway in Friday night's Pronto Auto Parts 400K. The driver of the No. 16 NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet has yet to finish on the lead lap in either of his trips to the 1.5-mile quad oval. Since the series began racing at TMS, Hornaday's average start is 17th and average finish is 25.5. Hornaday spent May 25 at Texas hosting a "ride along" day for Chevrolet. The event included rides for members of the media in a two-seat Chevy race truck. Local driver David Starr was also giving rides at the track.

The NAPA Auto Parts transporter will unload truck No.10. It has yet to be named and is the newest super-speedway truck in the fleet.

"I think we are really going to see what this new Silverado body will do," Hornaday said. "This is a pure speed truck and I am very excited about this race."

Despite his Texas-sized troubles in previous races at TMS, Hornaday is confident that he will do well this weekend.

"We haven't had a lot of success at Texas, but we never really had a super-speedway program either," he said. "This year we have worked on our aero package for the big tracks and I think we will be a whole lot better.

"The track is just awesome. Every time we come here we see our biggest crowds. It's incredible at night to see 70,000 fans cheering you on. And with all the flash bulbs going off, there's nothing like it. This is our Daytona 500."
