Florence, S.C. (February 25, 2015) – Florence-Darlington Technical College has partnered with two-time NASCAR Slim Jim All-Pro Series champion, Hal Goodson for the 2015 Pee Dee Coastal Super Truck Series and Pro All Star Series (PASS) seasons.

Goodson, who’s a Darlington, S.C. native is also a former NASCAR XFINITY Series driver and is looking to claim his seventh Super Truck divisional track championship at Dillon Motor Speedway in 2015.

“I am looking forward to the partnership with local race car driver, Hal Goodson,” FDTC President, Dr. Ben Dillard said. “Not only does Florence-Darlington Technical College provide a quality education, but the college also supports the local economy, and the Pee Dee area has such a rich history in stock car racing.”

Throughout the 2015 Pee Dee Coastal Super Truck Series season, Florence-Darlington Technical College will be the primary sponsor for Goodson as he competes at Dillon Motor Speedway, Florence Motor Speedway, Myrtle Beach Speedway, as well as any other track that may be added to the schedule this season. Goodson’s black No. 13 Florence-Darlington Technical College Super Truck will be adorned with the blue and gold colors of the college as the team competes throughout the Carolinas.

“I can’t thank Florence-Darlington Technical College enough for jumping onboard with Hal Goodson Motorsports this season,” Goodson said. “I am looking to win my seventh career Super Truck championship this season at Dillon Motor Speedway, so we’re going to go out and do everything we can to put the No. 13 Florence-Darlington Technical College Chevrolet front and center to all of the fans sitting in the grandstands.”

Florence-Darlington Technical College will also be an associate sponsor on Goodson’s No. 16 Pro All Star Series Super Late Model that is scheduled to compete in the South Carolina Clash 125 at Dillon Motor Speedway on Saturday, March 7 and for “The Bash at the Beach” at Myrtle Beach Speedway on Saturday, April 25.

“The Pro All Star Series is by far one of the most competitive Super Late Model divisions in the country,” FDTC Public Relations/Marketing Specialist, Hunter Thomas said. “With the experience Hal Goodson has at Dillon Motor Speedway and Myrtle Beach Speedway, I’d certainly look for him to be a top contender when the Pro All Star Series visits South Carolina.”

Over the last decade, Goodson has won the inaugural 2013 Pee Dee Coastal Super Truck Series championship, as well as all but two of the Super Truck divisional track championships at Dillon Motor Speedway since the speedway reopened in 2007. He was also named the Late Model divisional track champion back in 2009 at Dillon Motor Speedway.

The first appearance of the Florence-Darlington Technical College logo at the track will be on Saturday, March 7 when Goodson competes in the South Carolina Clash 125 at Dillon Motor Speedway. Qualifying is set to begin at 3:30 p.m., followed by the green flag at 5 p.m.
