‘2005 Series Champion Carries Hope for Haiti on the No. 15 Tundra’

The 2005 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion, Ted Musgrave will make his return to the series at Daytona International Speedway piloting the No. 15 Hope for Haiti Toyota Tundra in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 for Billy Ballew Motorsports. 

Musgrave, who sat out the past season due to lack of sponsorship, will pilot the Billy Ballew Motorsports entry in the 2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season opening race February 12, 2010. 

The series veteran has 191 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career starts with 17 wins, 80 top-five and119 top-ten finishes and12 pole starts. 

“How much more can you ask for actually,” Ted Musgrave said.  “Billy Ballew’s Toyota Tundra’s run consistently out front every week and it is a dream opportunity to step back into the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in the top equipment in the garage.  I’ve really missed driving last year but kept myself in the loop by being at the track and racing is like riding a bicycle you never really forget how to do it.” 

Hope for Haiti will serve as the primary sponsor on the No. 15 Tundra. 

“I’ve been blessed with all the things in my life with since my racing career began and with how catastrophic the earthquake was I thought that we needed to do something to give back,” Musgrave said.  “With the help from great people that have surrounding me in my career we were able to step up and get a true charity truck for Daytona.”

Associate sponsors Eco Clear Solutions, MagicJack.com and Bee My Bear are all lending a hand in the Hope for Haiti cause.

The NextEra Energy Resources 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race is slated to begin at 8:00pm ET Friday, February 12, 2010.

About Hope for Haiti: Naples, FL resident and humanitarian, JoAnne Kuehner, wanting to make a difference through focusing on education, she put her trust and support into “people” who were already striving for success. Joining forces with Dr. Keith Hussey in 1997, the focus to make a difference expanded to nutrition and healthcare. Now nearly 20 years later, Hope for Haiti prides its long-term success of our mission on the foundation on which it was built. Hope for Haiti continues to believe in “people” and therefore partners with those in Haiti who are doing an excellent job and supporting them in furthering their work. We do not build and run our own schools. Rather than reinvent the wheel, we work directly with those who are successfully ministering to the poor and who will be there for the long term. In this way, we make sure that over 95 cents of every dollar donated is used for programs that can help create a better future for the children of Haiti.  Hope for Haiti has held the vision from the very beginning that the people of Haiti are the ones who take control of their future and we are here to lend a needed hand along the difficult path.
