Fast and Fun Facts…

In 35 superspeedway starts, Hornaday has yet to win on a track two miles or more in length. However, after pushing Mike Wallace to victory lane in 2011, Hornaday has high hopes of changing the history books in this weekend’s fred’s 250 powered by Coca-Cola.

A Penny For Your Thoughts…
“Talladega is obviously one of those wild card races. We have a new Chevrolet Silverado for this weekend that registered some really good numbers in the wind tunnel that we are excited about. However, as much as you prepare for this race, it’s always an unknown. You need to be aware of your surroundings, be alert, know the draft, have a partner and I believe experience will be an advantage. I’m happy to have Anderson’s Maple Syrup back on board this weekend and I would love to see those familiar colors back in victory lane, hopefully with me this time!”
About Anderson’s Maple Syrup:
In 1928, Paul Anderson first shared the distinct taste of Wisconsin’s Northwoods, delicately sweet pure maple syrup. Three generations later, the Anderson family carries on its sugar making heritage by bottling pure maple syrup from the same sugar bush their grandfather tapped for so many years. A healthy all-natural delicacy, authentic maple syrup is a nutritious and natural alternative to artificial sweeteners and maple-flavored syrups. From its roots in Cumberland, Wisconsin, Anderson’s Maple Syrup can today be found in supermarkets and specialty shops across the country.
