WATKINS GLEN, New York (August 11, 2011) - – The Lone Star state will be well represented this weekend at Watkins Glen International (WGI). NASCAR Nationwide Series car owner Randy Hill will unveil a purple and white Ford Mustang with 19-year old Casey Roderick at the helm boasting the colors of Abilene Christian University (ACU).

“It’s such a blessing for me to be a part of the NASCAR Nationwide Series,” Hill said. “The opportunity to bring Abilene Christian University on-board for our debut seems only fitting. The university has done so much for me and others; I want everyone to know just how great of a place ACU really is and what they can offer to others.”

Hill is a strong supporter of education and helped initiate a program that provides iPads to schools. Hill began the initiative last December at Dallas Christian School by helping to donate iPads to teachers.  He later helped create a similar initiative at Abilene Christian School.  This week, he received national press attention for partnering with Abilene Christian University and Dallas Christian School to provide iPads 2 to students at Dallas Christian School.

“This is about giving back,” Hill said. “Sure, we’re going racing this weekend to have fun in our No. 39 Abilene Christian University Ford Mustang. But off the track, it’s about what more Randy Hill Racing and its associates can do not only now but for the future when it comes to education.”

This is the first K-12 school in America to implement a universal iPad initiative. Hill followed up at ACS in January 2011.

The Zippo 200 at the Glen (82 laps / 200.9 miles) is the 23rd of 35 races on the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series tour. Practice beings Friday, August 12 with a two-hour session planned from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day on Saturday, August 13th set to launch at 9:45 a.m. The field will take the green flag shortly after 2:00 p.m. with live coverage on ESPN, MRN Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR (Satellite) Radio (Channel 90). Pre-race coverage of the contest lifts off at 1:00 p.m. also on ESPN.
