As Austin Hill and Richard Childress Racing return in an attempt to finish unfinished business from 2023 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2024, a familiar partner will also return. Bennett Transportation & Logistics will return as a primary sponsor of the No. 21 team.

According to a press release from Richard Childress Racing, Bennett has extended and expanded its relationship with RCR and driver Austin Hill for 2024 and beyond. The company is excited heading into its third year of partnership with RCR and Hill.

“We are looking forward to our third season with the Richard Childress Racing team and Austin Hill. Our customers, drivers, agents, and employees had lots to celebrate in 2023 with Austin winning the Xfinity Series Regular Season Championship,” said Lynette Mathis, vice president of the Bennett Family of Companies. “The celebration continues in 2024 for our 50th Anniversary as a company. We have seen the pride in the Bennett Family of Companies swell with this relationship as everyone associated with our business rallies behind Austin and his team on Saturday afternoons. Everyone can see the parallels between the great teamwork of a successful race program and how it reflects the great teamwork required to handle complex transportation and logistics.”

RCR is ready to continue the winning combination that is RCR, Hill and Bennett, and the race team is happy to be partnered with an organization that shares common core values.

“From the moment our partnership with Bennett began, we have not only achieved on the track, but we have built a relationship that is founded on the same company core values,” said Torrey Galida, president of RCR. “As Bennett celebrates their 50th anniversary in 2024, we share their pride in humble beginnings and look forward to being a part of their growing global enterprise. Bennett has done an outstanding job of incorporating the racing program into their overall business strategy. 2023 highlights included hosting their drivers of the year award winners at our shop and at the track and recognizing the Women in the Driver’s Seat initiative.”

As part of the agreement, Bennett will continue to host customers trackside, providing exclusive behind-the-scenes access on race weekends, and driving recruitment and retention through unique activations. RCR will also assist the Bennett team with strategic content, and marketing and communications support, according to the release.

Hill, 29, scored four wins during the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series season, following up on a two-win rookie campaign in 2022. Hill narrowly missed out on a Championship 4 appearance in 2023 following an incident with his teammate Sheldon Creed in the closing laps of the penultimate race of the season at Martinsville Speedway.

In addition to his six wins in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, Hill was an eight-time race winner in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series prior to making the move up.
