“Hill To Miss Receiving Award To Race Daytona’s High-Banks”

Casey Roderick
DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (February 24, 2012) - - Randy Hill Racing (RHR) one of the newest additions to the NASCAR scene overcame an engine failure upon the conclusion of the first practice yesterday to earn a starting berth for tomorrow’s DRIVE4COPD 300 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

The No. 08 Randy Hill Racing Ford Mustang piloted by 19-year old Casey Roderick posted a lap of 50.532 seconds at 178.105 miles per hour which placed the team in the 32nd starting position for the first NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) race of the year.

RHR, led by veteran crew chief Paul Andrews completed just two laps in yesterday’s practice session before the engine seized in the No. 08 Randy Hill Racing Ford Mustang forcing the crew to change motors which ultimately hampered the team from competing in final practice just a short time later.

“Everything happens for a reason,” said owner Randy Hill. “While we were disappointed in the engine failure in yesterday’s practice session, the team wasn’t prepared to go down without a fight. Casey did a great job getting the No. 08 Randy Hill Racing Ford Mustang into the field and now we’re ready for our biggest NASCAR race yet.”

Roderick, the Lawrenceville, Georgia native talked about his qualifications lap.

“I knew I just had to pedal it to the floor and hope for the best,” Roderick explained. “I knew even though it was only two laps that our Ford Mustang was handling well, we were just hoping that the backup motor would be just as strong. We just have to play it smart and be around for all 120 laps tomorrow and hopefully we can have a finish that we’re all extremely happy with.”

In other team news, Dallas Christian School will present Randy Hill with its prestigious Distinguished Alumnus Award on Saturday, February 25. Hill, a native of Garland, Texas and a 1986 alum of Dallas Christian School. He was an outstanding athlete in high school and played on the 1985 State Championship Football Team.

With all of Hill’s success from launching his first company Advanced Trailer Leasing and Sales LTD. to most recently forming Randy Hill Racing, he continues to support the advancement of education. His vision allowed Dallas Christian School to purchase iPads to be given to faculty in December 2010. The gift initiated DC’s ChargerTech program that has been a leader in mobile learning. Later Hill continued the trend by doing the same at Abilene Christian School. But his support of education doesn’t stop there. He has also promoted Abilene Christian University and Texas Tech University logos on his race cars at various events. He continues to be a part of many organizations and is interested in furthering the educational landscape.

Since Hill will be attending Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series event, his parents will accept the award on his behalf back in Texas.

“I am extremely humbled to be receiving the Distinguished Alumnus Award,” sounded Hill. “I’ve always had a mission about helping people and I felt this was one of the right things to do. I’ve very grateful to Dallas Christian School for thinking so much of me and presenting me with an award of that magnitude. I’m saddened that I won’t be able to be there in person to graciously accept the award but we’ll try and see if we can be a threat to win the race for them and all of our supporters on Saturday afternoon.”

The DRIVE4COPD 300 (120 laps / 300 miles) is the first of 33 events on the 2012 NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule. The field will take the green flag on Saturday, February 25th just after 1:00 p.m. with live coverage on ESPN, the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90). Pre-race coverage of the anticipated thriller is tentatively scheduled to lift off at 12:30 p.m. also on ESPN.
