DOVER, Delaware (September 25, 2014) -- Rick Ware Racing announced today that 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series Rookie of the Year Timmy Hill will pilot the team’s No. 23 Chevrolet Camaro in Saturday’s Dover 200 at Dover (Del.) International Speedway.
Saturday’s race will also mark the debut of the team’s newest sponsor, Retro Infinity Inc.
Retro Infinity Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of WRIT Media Group, Inc. (OTCQB: WRIT) and publisher of classic video games on today's mobile devices, including the Amiga Games brand will back the team for the 28th NASCAR Nationwide Series race of the season.
"NASCAR provides an exciting environment in which to provide awareness and showcase our mobile gaming products, and we look forward to further enhancing the fan experience at home, at the track and on the go for these races," says Retro Infinity Inc. CEO Eric Mitchell.
Hill, 21, will make his fifth NASCAR Nationwide Series start of the season at the “Monster Mile” Saturday. Hill has competed in three events for Rick Ware Racing this year, most recently at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway last month. Hill competed for the Thomasville, North Carolina-based team earlier at Dover International Speedway, where he maneuvered a season-best finish of 21st, after starting 25th.
“I’m excited to represent Retro Infinity this weekend at Dover,” said Hill. “It’s always refreshing to welcome a new sponsor to the sport, especially one that can relate to NASCAR fans across the country. We had a solid run at Dover earlier this year, so we’ll return this weekend and hope we can do a little better.”
The Port Tobacco, Maryland driver will make his fifth career Nationwide start at the 1.0-mile concrete oval Saturday. In his previous four runs, Hill negotiated four top-25 finishes, including a track best of 21st occurring in June.
“I enjoy competing at Dover,” added Hill. “It’s a cool track, but one you need to have finesse in order to conquer. Handling is important for our No. 23 Retro Infinity Chevrolet Camaro, so I’m sure we’ll spend practicing making sure we’ll have a competitive piece for the race. Everyone at Rick Ware Racing wants to have a good run for Retro Infinity Inc. in their NASCAR debut.”
Entering Dover, Hill is set to make his 68th career NASCAR Nationwide Series start. He has achieved two top-10 finishes, including a career-best of seventh at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February 2012. He will run double-duty this weekend at Dover, also piloting the No. 44 Chevrolet SS for Xxxtreme Motorsport in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
The Dover 200 is set for Saturday, September 27, 2014. The 200-lap contest is scheduled to air live on ESPN2, the Motor Racing Network (MRN) and SiriusXM Satellite Radio Channel 90 beginning at 3:30 p.m. Eastern. The green flag is scheduled to fly at 3:44 p.m.
