“We’re excited at KHI to add E-Z-GO to our list of partners,” said KHI co-owner Harvick. “Atlanta Motor Speedway has been a good track for me over the years and I’ve run well there in both the Cup and Nationwide Series. It’s where I got my first career Cup win in 2001 and then last season I got my first career win in the Nationwide Series at the track. This year my first trip there will be in the No. 2 E-Z-GO Chevy for the Atlanta Truck race and hopefully I can give them a proper welcome to KHI and the Truck Series with a visit to victory lane.”
