Kenny Habul hits a sign on a restart during the Johnsonville Sausage 200 Presented by Menards at Road America.

The trackside signs are cowering in fear at Road America. Kenny Habul is back.

Last year, Habul brazenly not only committed signslaughter, but he also had the audacity to take the sign along for a ride after he did the crime.

But on Saturday, if Habul takes out a sign again, he may do it much closer to the front of the field. His company, Sun Energy 1, purchased a four-race Nationwide sponsorship at Joe Gibbs Racing. As part of the deal, Habul is driving the No. 20 car at Road America and Mid-Ohio.

In case you were wondering, Habul's highest finish at a road course in his six-race Nationwide Series career is 16th. But hey, he has a sponsor because, well, he is the sponsor. In NASCAR, that's more than half the battle sometimes.
