Market Street and its parent company, United Supermarkets, have partnered with Go Green Racing and Randy Hill Racing LLC to sponsor two cars at this weekend’s NASCAR events at Texas Motor Speedway.
United will sponsor the No. 39 car, driven by Tim Andrews, in the NASCAR Nationwide Series “O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge” on Saturday, Nov. 3. United also will sponsor the No. 79 car, driven by Kelly Bires in the NASCAR Sprint Cup “AAA Texas 500” race on Sunday, Nov. 4.
Randy Hill Racing is owned and operated by Randy Hill, a Texas entrepreneur who is best known for inventing the peanut drying trailer. With more than 4,000 trailers in service in all 10 peanut-producing states in America, his trailers are now used to transport and procure more than 70 percent of the nation’s peanut crop annually.
In conjunction with his NASCAR racing team, Hill currently is working on a reality TV show titled “Zero8 The Entrepreneur” about his journey of building a NASCAR race team from the ground up. The first episode is scheduled to air nationally in early 2013.
Go Green Racing is Randy Hill Racing’s team operations partner.
The NASCAR Nationwide Series “O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge” will be televised on ESPN2 at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. The NASCAR Sprint Cup “AAA Texas 500” will be televised on ESPN at 2 p.m. Sunday.
