"This is our first NASCAR sponsorship, and we are thrilled to introduce our United Supermarkets and Market Street brands to NASCAR fans," said Wes Jackson, chief merchandising officer for United Supermarkets, LLC.

Currently, Hill is working on a reality TV show titled "Zero 8" about his journey of building a NASCAR race team from the ground up. The first episode is slated to air nationally on NBC prior to the Daytona 500 in February 2013.
