AVONDALE, Ariz. -- Kevin Harvick Inc. signed Ron Hornaday to a multiyear extension to drive in NASCAR's Trucks Series.

The 52-year-old driver will return to the No. 33 Chevrolet next season. Sponsorship was not announced on Friday.

Hornaday has been with KHI since 2005, and won two of his four championships with the organization. He's also the series' winningest driver with 47 victories.

"Ron has been an integral part of our Truck series program since he joined KHI in 2005," team co-owner Kevin Harvick said. "He has driven our organization to two Truck series championships and I firmly believe that we will continue to compete for championships with Hornaday as our driver."

Hornaday went into Friday night's race at Phoenix International Raceway seventh in the series standings with two victories this year.

"This season hasn't been exactly what we wanted, but that just gives me more drive than ever to go after a fifth Truck series championship with the No. 33 team in 2011," Hornaday said.
