Bobby Hamilton Racing and Arrington Manufacturing Partner for 2008 Season and Beyond
12-10-2007 Mt. Juliet, TN

Printable Version  

In an effort to better align themselves in the NASCAR community, Bobby Hamilton Racing (BHR) and Arrington Manufacturing (AMI) announced today the formation of a partnership between its two companies.  AMI consists of a joint venture between Mac Bailey, Mark Melling, Clay Campbell, Stacy Compton and Joey Arrington.  BHR will continue to be run daily by Lori Hamilton with AMI management group.  Accordingly, the company, founded by the late Bobby Hamilton Sr., will relocate closer to the hub of NASCAR in the coming weeks.

BHR will continue to field the No. 4 and the No. 18 Dodges in the 2008 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

“Bobby Hamilton Sr.’s dream was carried on last season through the hard work and dedication of so many people who stuck by us,” said Lori Hamilton.  “This partnership allows us to grow for the future. In the past few months, we realized how vital it is to our future success to be located closer to NASCAR and its community.  Joey Arrington has always been a team player for our organization.  Bobby always valued his knowledge and experience in the sport.  It is a natural fit for our organizations to work together and take this team to another level.”

“This is a step in the right direction for BHR and AMI,” said Joey Arrington.  “It is our goal to get Dodge Motorsports back on top of its game in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.  We will learn more, grow bigger and continue to carry on Bobby’s goals together.”

More details will be announced as they progress in the coming weeks.

In its 10-year existence, BHR has scored 19 race wins, 22 poles, 85 top-five finishes, 168 top 10-finishes and the 2004 NCTS Championship.
