“Stillman College is excited that NASCAR is partnering with HBCUs, to support diversity efforts in their racing cup series,” Warrick said.

“Having a Stillman-branded car in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 signals a major effort for NASCAR, and we are honored to be a part of this initiative. Plus, our car looks really cool.”

Stillman College is finalizing a multi-year content streaming partnership with Urban Edge Network, Inc.-HBCU League Pass Plus, which will provide live-streams of Stillman Athletics events, archived game footage, choir and band, and virtual campus tours.
