Ricky Stenhouse Jr, a two-time NASCAR Cup Series winner, will begin his seventh full-season behind the wheel of the No. 17 Ford Mustang for Roush Fenway Racing. The Olive Branch, Mississippi native is a two-time NASCAR Xfinity Series Champion (2011, 2012) and the 2013 NASCAR Cup Series Rookie of the Year.
"I'm very excited to team up with the folks at KHI Management," Stenhouse said. "What they bring to their clients both on and off the track is second to none. I really enjoy seeing the cross promotions they do with all their clients and sponsors and look forward to being a part of these for years to come."
Ryan Preece, a native of Berlin, Connecticut will be making his Daytona 500 debut this week driving the No. 47 Chevrolet Camaro for JTG Racing. The two-time NASCAR Xfinity Series winner will also run a part time schedule in the No. 8 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe for JR Motorsports beginning at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
"I was fortunate enough to sit down with KHI Management this off-season and learn more about what they can offer me," Preece said. "I'm excited to be a part of their racing family and have the opportunity to work with them to build my brand both on and off the track during my first full-season in the NASCAR Cup Series."
Vaughn Taylor, a three-time winner on the PGA Tour, including the 2016 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, will join the KHI Management golf lineup which currently includes James Hahn, Jason Gore and Chesson Hadley. Taylor, a 2006 US Ryder Cup team member will be teeing it up this week at the Genesis Open in Pacific Palisades, California.
"KHI Management is a breath of fresh air when it comes to the golf world," Taylor said. "They've only been working in golf for a few years and landed some big-name golfers, which says a lot about what they bring to the table."
"We are very happy to see the continued growth here at KHI Management," said Kevin Harvick, founder of KHI Management. "We've been very fortunate over the last couple of years to build a team of athletes that believe in each other and support each other. I think Ricky, Ryan and Vaughn will be great additions to our stable and will contend for wins in their respective sports now and for years to come."
Stenhouse Jr., Preece and Taylor are the first athletes announced this year. They will join a roster of KHI Management talent, which includes UFC fighter Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone; NASCAR drivers Kevin Harvick and Harrison Burton; FOX Sports reporter Shannon Spake; amateur motocross prodigy Ryder DiFrancesco; PGA golfers Jason Gore, James Hahn and Chesson Hadley.
