STATESVILLE, N.C. (February 11, 2021) – Our Motorsports is excited to open the 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series season with the support of country music label Quartz Hill Records. Our’s #03 Camaro piloted by Series Champion, Tyler Reddick, will showcase up-and-coming Quartz Hill Records artist Nate Barnes and the cover artwork for his debut single, “You Ain’t Pretty.”
Hailing from South Haven, Michigan, Nate Barnes is a young, blue-collar storyteller who writes and sings about God, family, hard work, heartache, love, and the simple joys of life. The former nuclear power plant worker spent years playing bars, coffee shops, small venues and festivals in and around his hometown while juggling a grueling day job that included shoveling and digging trenches, laying pipelines, pouring concrete and performing mechanical maintenance duties for the plant, oftentimes enduring extreme weather conditions and 14-hour shifts. A virtual unknown before signing with Quartz Hill Records, Barnes’ “You Ain’t Pretty” has earned over 14 million TikTok streams and half a million lyric video views since the song’s release in late 2020.
“You Ain’t Pretty” officially impacts country radio on 2/16 and is available now across all digital retailers and streaming services HERE.
“It’s absolutely mind-blowing to think that my face and name will be featured on a professional race car- driven by a two-time Xfinity Series champion!” says Barnes. “I’m so honored to have this opportunity. I love racing and I can’t wait to be onsite this weekend cheering Tyler on.”
“NASCAR and country music go hand-in-hand. We’re all part of the same, extended family. Quartz Hill Records is proud to sponsor Our Motorsport’s #03 Camaro on opening weekend of the NASCAR Xfinity Series 2021 season,” says Benny Brown, managing partner of Quartz Hill Records.
Reddick returns to Daytona for his first NASCAR Xfinity Series action since 2019 when he was crowned Series Champion for the second consecutive season. The winner of the 2018 season opener at Daytona is excited for the opportunity with Our Motorsports as he makes his 85th start in the series.
The #03 Camaro featuring Quartz Hill Records with artist Nate Barnes will debut at the Beef. Its What’s for Dinner 300 at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, February 13 at 5pm EST. The race will be televised live on FS1.
