Bennett Family of Companies, United Rentals, Global Industrial and Alsco Uniforms to Partner on RCR’s No. 21 Chevrolet Camaro

WELCOME, NORTH CAROLINA (February 1, 2022) – Richard Childress Racing announced today a dynamic, multi-partner lineup for driver Austin Hill in the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series. Bennett Family of Companies, United Rentals Global Industrial and Alsco Uniforms will share time as primary partners on the No. 21 Chevrolet Camaro SS. Hill, 27, will be competing for Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors in his first full-time season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series driving the No. 21 Chevrolet for RCR.

Andy Street, a long-time RCR employee who guided Myatt Snider to a race win and a NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs berth as the crew chief for RCR’s No. 2 Chevrolet in 2021, will assume crew chief duties for the No. 21 Chevrolet in 2022.

“I couldn’t be more excited for our NASCAR Xfinity Series lineup in 2022,” said Danny Lawrence, Director of the NASCAR Xfinity Series program for Richard Childress Racing. “Austin Hill has already shown his skills as a driver in the NASCAR Truck Series, and we know he will bring that same competitive drive to Richard Childress Racing’s NASCAR Xfinity Series program. I can’t think of a better crew chief to help guide him and the team than Andy Street. They will both do a great job representing our partners, both on and off the track. I’m expecting big things from the No. 21 team this season.”

Each of the partners on the No. 21 team will work with RCR to leverage their team partnership in unique and innovative ways.

Bennett Family of Companies, a McDonough, Ga.-based company, will make its NASCAR debut with Hill and the No. 21 team in the Bennett Transportation and Logistics car. Bennett plans to host customers trackside, giving them unique behind-the-scenes access on race weekends and will use race experiences to recruit and retain hundreds of truck drivers for their organization in 2022.

“We are thrilled to partner with Richard Childress Racing and Austin Hill this season. Our companies share many core values, plus a commitment to excellence, and RCR has a long tradition of success on the track. We are looking forward to our debut in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this season, and working closely with everyone at RCR to create best-in-class opportunities for our partners.”
