Sammy Sanders (born July 17, 1967) is a part-time NASCAR driver from Mount Juliet, Tennessee. He drives the #04 Camp Courageous Dodge for Bobby Hamilton Racing on occasion in the Craftsman Truck Series. He has a couple of Busch Series starts in his career as well.

Busch Series[edit]

Sanders has made three Busch Series starts in his career, all of which came in 2001. Driving for Day Racing Enterprises, Sanders started 38th at Rockingham in his debut. He would finish the race, despite being twelve laps down in 36th. Then, Sanders went to Las Vegas and Bristol. It was the same song both times, as Sanders started and finished 41st falling out of the event early.

Craftsman Truck Series[edit]

Sanders started 34th at Kentucky Speedway in 2001, his first career race. Driving for Bobby Hamilton Racing, Sanders would finish 34th with electrical problems. Sanders would make one more start for BHR in 2001, finishing 31st at Nazareth. Then, Sanders moved to Team Rensi Motorsports for the 2001 finale at California. It was a poor showing, though, for Sanders' team after an engine forced him to last (36th) in the event.

Sanders returned to the series in 2004, driving for Harris Trucking Motorsports at Texas Motor Speedway. Starting the event in 35th, Sanders finished his first race in good fashion, on the lead lap. Sanders would go on to finish twenty-second in the event.

In 2006, Bobby Hamilton Racing announced that Sanders would drive the #04 Dodge in three events through the 2006. He earned a career best 30th place start in his season debut at Nashville and then finished 25th. As stated, Sanders will be in two more races on the year.
