Hylton KHI Part Ways

KERNERSVILLE, N.C. — Kevin Harvick Inc. (KHI) and Butch Hylton, crew chief of the No. 33 Chevrolet, have mutually parted ways effective immediately. Hylton, who was an important part of KHI’s early success in the Busch Series, has opted to pursue other career opportunities.

Veteran NASCAR crew chief Lance Deiters will take over as crew chief of the No. 33 Chevrolet this weekend at the Kentucky Speedway. Deiters currently serves several different capacities at KHI, most notably as crew chief of the No. 33 NASCAR West Series entry, in which the team has one win and a sixth-place finish in two starts this season.

“Butch (Hylton) has helped KHI grow exponentially this season, and helped build our Busch program to the highest level of competition. I wish Butch all the luck in his new endeavors, and thank him for his contributions to KHI,” commented Kevin Harvick, owner of KHI. “Lance Deiters is a veteran crew chief with all the talent in the world. He has been outstanding for KHI so far this season with our West program. He’ll (Deiters) do a great job of stepping in as crew chief in the middle of the season and continuing to grow the No. 33 Busch team.”

KHI is committed to putting the highest quality race car and team on the track each week, and will continue to strive for that excellence as the 2005 season moves forward.

The team travels to the Kentucky Speedway this weekend with Tony Raines driving the No. 33 Yard-Man Chevrolet.
