Texas church member driven to succeed, this time in NASCAR
The Abilene Reporter-News in Texas reports on Randy Hill, a member of the Highland Church of Christ:
He has a car. He has a driver. And most important, Randy Hill has a dream: NASCAR team owner.
The Abilene businessman, 43, who has interests in agriculture, trucking and real estate, will realize his dream next month when his No. 08 Ford Mustang, with 18-year-old Casey Roderick behind the wheel, takes the track at Watkins Glen International for the Nationwide Series race.
The race will put Hill one step closer to his goal of running a car in the Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR’s highest level.
Along the way, Hill, an Abilene Christian University alum, said he has encountered nothing but helpful people in his dealings with NASCAR: From racing legend Richard Petty, who was happy to offer Hill advice and support, to Sprint Cup Series driver David Ragan, who helped secure parts and equipment, to the Roush Racing Team, which sold Hill the car that Carl Edwards ran in last week’s Nationwide race in Iowa and which Hill’s team will race at Watkins Glen.
