On Record Rack Partnership: “I don’t get a lot of time away from the race track, but when I do have a little down time, I always enjoy being out in the woods hunting with my dad. Partnering with Record Rack® has been great for so many reasons.
“Not only does Record Rack® separate themselves from the competition with their products, but they excel in giving back to the community.”
