From News Release

Eddie Sharp Racing currently a one-team operation in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, announced today that they have acquired a controlling interest in two of Kevin Harvick Inc. Truck Series teams. With the acquisition of the No. 8 and No. 33 KHI trucks, ESR will field three full-time NCWTS teams in 2012. The NCWTS driver line up for ESR will be announced in October. The teams will operate out of Eddie Sharp Racing's current 40,000 square-foot five-star facility in Denver, N.C. "The timing couldn't have been any more perfect," said team owner Eddie Sharp. "We are ready to take this opportunity head on to utilize what Kevin and DeLana have built. It was a marriage made in heaven, because we were ready to move forward at ESR, and this opportunity worked out perfectly. With KHI, you have a turnkey, successful program at the ready. Eddie Sharp Racing's No. 6 truck is currently 19th in NCWTS owner point standings, only 57 points out of the top 12. The team was created in 2006 as Eddie Sharp envisioned his long-term goals as a team owner. The goal was to contend, not simply compete. That desire drove Sharp to obtain a five-star facility, which is what allowed the team to quickly transition from contender to champion.
