Nashville, Tenn. - Bobby Hamilton Jr. announced that 2007 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Raybestos Rookie of the Year Willie Allen will pilot the No. 95 Dodge for Sadler-Hamilton Racing during select NASCAR Nationwide Series events in 2008. Hamilton Jr. recently became a co-owner of the Nashville-based team that celebrates its 25th anniversary this season.

"My goals for this year are to run four or five Nationwide races with Willie as our driver," said Hamilton Jr. "I sat down with our crew chief Danny Gill and looked at available drivers and Willie was a great fit for our project. Next year, we hope to run 15-25 Nationwide races and a full Camping World East schedule."

"It is an honor to drive for Sadler-Hamilton Racing," said Allen. "The team has such a great history in NASCAR.

I am very excited and thrilled to have this great opportunity."
