Texas Tech car will be racing at Duck Commander 500

Last year it was Jeff Gordon sporting Texas A&M colors at the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Saturday it will be Mike Bliss’ turn to shine some light on a Texas college as he’ll be driving the No. 32 Texas Tech University Ford in the race.

Bliss, who drives for Go Green Racing, races full time in the NASCAR XFINITY Series and will be looking to make his fifth Sprint Cup start of the year in the Texas Tech ride.

According to the Austin American-Statesman a graduate of the Texas Tech business school donated product sponsorship of a Sprint Cup car to the school for the race.
