LOUDON, NH - Kevin Harvick has sold a controlling interest in his Truck Series team to Eddie Sharp Racing.
Harvick had announced this month he planned to shutter his program at the end of the year. In the deal announced Friday, ESR acquired the No. 8 and No. 33 KHI trucks.
Eddie Sharp racing, already a one-team operation in the series, will field three teams in 2012. The lineup for next year will be announced in October.
The teams will operate out of Eddie Sharp Racing's facility in Denver, N.C.
KHI was started by Harvick and his wife, DeLana, in 2002. Harvick pinned most of his decision to sell the team based on business reasons and his desire to win a Sprint Cup championship.
