LUBBOCK, Texas (October 28, 2011) – - Football and NASCAR will collide this weekend when Randy Hill Racing’s No. 08 Texas Tech University (TTU) Ford Mustang will be displayed on their home turf Saturday when the College Football team takes on Iowa State.

The black, white and red blue oval’s presence at Raider Alley starting at 12:00 p.m. kicks-off the pre-race activities for the upcoming NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge race set to take place at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) the following weekend on Saturday, November 5th.

“We’re looking forward to having our race car on display at Texas Tech this weekend,” said car owner Randy Hill. “It’s an awesome feeling when two spectacle sports like Football and Auto Racing are able to unite together like we are doing next weekend at Texas. I encourage everyone to come out and see the car and root on the team.”

Randy Hill Racing will make another team announcement early next week surrounding Hill’s inaugural expected debut at his hometown racetrack.

The O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge (200 laps / 300 miles) is the 32nd of 34 events on the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule.

Big news in the alternative energy world: Texas Tech is establishing a wind energy institute:


“Texas Tech University has announced it will become the research hub for the newly formed National Institute for Renewable Energy, a wind energy consortium started with financial help from West Texas organizations such as the Development Corporation of Abilene.”

This is a great next step in the development of alternative energy research. We also need to research renewable sources other than wind, like biomass. That’s why I’m here this week at the University of Idaho looking into the research that the university is doing with my Advanced Trailer for Biomass.

I’m excited about what biomass is and what it could mean to our future.
