MARYVILLE, Tenn., March 13, 2014 — Clayton Homes has announced they are a proud partner of the Duck Commander 500, this year’s annual spring NASCAR® Sprint Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway®. This race is the most-attended, single-day sporting event in Texas and expects a crowd of more than 150,000 on April 6, 2014.
The Robertsons, including Phil, Kay and Si, have publicly endorsed Clayton Homes as a “Good Call” for homeowners across America. Si Robertson currently lives in a Clayton home with his wife Christine, and Phil and Kay have a new hunting lodge built by Clayton Homes that they can enjoy every duck season.
“Clayton Homes and the Robertsons share a strong passion for family values and a love of racing,” said Kevin Clayton, CEO of Clayton Homes. “We are honored to be a part of this racing event with the Robertsons at Texas Motor Speedway.”
The ongoing relationship has inspired Clayton Homes to create the limited edition Si-Pad home, an optional Ms. Kay’s Kitchen feature and an entire Commander series of popular home models. Two Clayton homes will be on display for race fans to tour throughout the Duck Commander 500 weekend of festivities.
