MBM Motorsports will field its No. 66 Cup Series ride at Talladega Superspeedway and select races throughout the rest of 2021,The Racing Experts have learned.
Timmy Hill will attempt the GEICO 500 at Talladega (April 25) after he and the team skipped the Martinsville Speedway race and will miss the Richmond Raceway event this weekend (April 18), team owner Carl Long confirmed.
“Glad that Supreme Transportation out of Atlanta, Georgia stepped up and made it possible to go to the race,” team owner Carl Long said to The Racing Experts.
“A lot of the sponsorship is based on the fact Timmy will be racing in the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series.”
The car will be the same Hill used at Daytona last year to earn a spot in the Daytona 500.
Mike Contarino will serve as crew chief.
“I believe that Timmy can finish inside the Top-10,” Long said of the expectations for Talladega. “We’re looking forward to going back.”
Hill has attempted six races in the No. 66 MBM Motorsports entry this season with a 29th-place finish at the Daytona Road Course as his highest finish.
Additionally, Long confirmed the No. 66 entry will attempt races at Circuit of the Americas, Charlotte, the All-Star Open at Texas, Nashville, Indianapolis, Daytona, Darlington, Bristol, Talladega, Texas, Kansas, Martinsville, and Phoenix, with the possibility of Hill behind the wheel at most of the races.
Chad Finchum is expected in the car at Nashville, and Stephen Leicht and Matt Jaskol could see seat time too.
While the 22-employee race team has sponsorship for the COTA race, other sponsorship opportunities remain available for the other races.
“You get more bang for your buck,” Long said. “We try to give our sponsors a quality experience without having to break the bank.
“We can go out and promote their product. NASCAR has a huge following, and we can tap into that.”
