Beard Motorsports will make its 2023 NASCAR Cup Series debut this weekend in the GEICO 500 NASCAR Cup Series race at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway. This is Beard Motorsports‘ seventh season participating in select NASCAR Cup Series events. The team‘s resume includes a total of 21 starts in Cup Series competition. Piloting the No. 62 Chevrolet Camaro for the Beard family is NASCAR Xfinity Series standout driver Austin Hill.
This weekend‘s NASCAR Cup Series race at Talladega will mark the second career start for Hill. The native of Winston, Georgia, made his Cup Series debut last season at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn driving the No. 33 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing (RCR). He raced his way to an 18th-place finish after starting 31st. While Hill may have limited experience behind the wheel of a NASCAR Cup Series car, he goes into this weekend‘s race with a growing prowess for superspeedway racing. Driving for RCR in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, Hill has a resume that features a total of five series wins. Among those victories are a pair of wins at Talladega‘s sister track, Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.
Realtree, the world‘s leading designer, marketer, and licensor of photorealistic camouflage, will serve as the primary sponsor on the No. 62 Chevrolet this weekend at Talladega. The scheme will highlight Realtree‘s Timebr® camouflage pattern and feature a special promotion for Turkeys for Tomorrow (TFT), the 501(c)3 non-profit group dedicated to wild turkey conservation. Formed in 2021 by veteran turkey hunters who were concerned about the future of the wild turkey and the turkey hunting tradition, the group has continued to grow and be at the forefront of cutting-edge wild turkey research projects.
