Timmy Hill’s 2020 NASCAR season has been quite the ride thus far and it’s paying off as RoofClaim.com have extended its sponsorship deal with him and MBM Motorsports, beginning with this Sunday’s The Real Heroes 400 at Darlington Raceway.
The extension will cover Hill as he’ll run all seven NASCAR races across Cup, Xfinity and Truck Series at Darlington and Charlotte Motor Speedway in a span of 11 days.
Since the technology service company came onboard during Speedweeks at Daytona, Hill has represented them beyond expectations by making the Daytona 500 when the Carl Long owned team’s future were rumored to be in doubt and scored a superb third in the Xfinity Series race.
From there, RoofClaim.com was on Hill’s iRacing Toyota Camry in all seven eNASCAR/iRacing Pro Invitational Series, where he scored a win at Texas Motor Speedway and had the best average finish of everyone that participated at 3.6.
As a result of Hill’s virtual racing success, FOX 46 Charlotte reporter Will Kunkel tweeted that RoofClaim.com has helped buy new tires for the No. 66 team at Darlington.
“We are all very excited to get back to the track and get back to real racing! The iRacing is great, and it was great with the success we had, but it is time to get back to some real racing” said Hill. “We are also very excited that, during this break, we now have a long-term partner with RoofClaim.com. Our conversations during the break were very productive and we all have the same goal, to get better. It is going to be great to go to the tracks now and have the resources to buy new sticker tires instead of depending on older tires that really put us in a hole. It will take some time, but I think you are going to see a gradual improvement as the season goes on.”
Brian Wedding, CEO of RoofClaim.com, said Hill’s success at Daytona and iRacing has brought tremendous exposure to the company which focuses on insurance claims processing and roof replacements.
“Our partnership with MBM Mortorsports and Timmy Hill has been a great success thus far,” said Wedding. “The partnership has brought great exposure to our brand and allowed us to further educate homeowners across the nation about our innovative services. We are excited to expand our partnership with MBM and Timmy and look forward to reaching more of the NASCAR community both digitally and at the track.”
Along with RoofClaim.com sponsoring Hill’s No. 66 Camry, Pit Boss Grills will be the associate sponsor as they’ve previously sponsored the car at Phoenix, the sport’s last race before COVID-19 delayed the NASCAR season.
Live coverage of Sunday’s 293-lap race will air on FOX at 3:30 pm EST. Hill has run two Cup races at Darlington, taking place in 2013 and 2018 where he finished 33rd and 37th respectively.
