NASCAR team a dream come true for Hill

Randy Hill Racing is NASCAR’s newest team, and its namesake couldn’t be happier.
Hill (’90), an entrepreneur and longtime racing fan, achieved a lifetime dream when he received his NASCAR team owner credentials in early June.
His No. 08 Chevy Impala, driven by 18-year-old Casey Roderick, finished 13th last weekend in the Prairie Meadows 200 at Iowa Speedway in an Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) Series event, in spite of some mechanical challenges and a flat tire.
Hill hired longtime ARCA and NASCAR driver Jeff Straker to lead his team. The car Roderick drove in Iowa was purchased from Rousch Racing Team, and previously driven by Carl Edwards. Next competition is July 28 in the Ansell Protective Gloves 200 at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, Ind., and Aug. 6 in the Pennsylvania ARCA 125 at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa.
The team makes its NASCAR Nationwide series debut Aug. 13 in the Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International. ESPN will televise the race live at 1 p.m. CST.
