August 12, 1998 Two Great Names in Nashville Racing Team Up
Earl Sadler and Son Racing announced today that they have signed Bobby Hamilton Jr. as a Busch Grand National driver for 1998 and 1999.
Bobby Hamilton Jr., son of Winston Cup Driver Bobby Hamilton, will begin racing the #95 Sadler Busch cars next month at Richmond.
Bobby finished 20th in points in the All-Pro Series last year before moving up to ARCA this season. In his first outing at Pocono this June, he started 3rd and finished 5th driving a Pontiac his dad bought from Richard Petty. In the July Pocono race Bobby started 5th, but finished 25th after losing an engine.
Bobby will run four Busch Grand National races and two ARCA races with the Sadler Team this fall.
The race schedule is:
Richmond International Raceway
Charlotte Motor Speedway
North Carolina Speedway
Atlanta Motor Speedway
Miami-Dade Homestead Motorsports Complex
Bobby will then run the full 1999 BGN schedule for the Sadler Racing Team.
I will be adding a biography of Bobby Hamilton Jr. as soon as possible.
