Bobby Pierce and MB Motorsports hope the magic they created together on the dirt at Eldora transfers to the asphalt of Martinsville Speedway in Saturday’s Kroger 200.  After scoring the pole, a heat race victory and a second place finish in the MudSummer Classic, Pierce will be making his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series asphalt debut when he slides behind the wheel of the #63 RPM Services, LLC / Pixographs Chevy Silverado.

“RPM Service, LLC can’t get enough of MB Motorsports and Bobby Pierce!” exclaims RPM Services, LLC CEO Mike Kamp.  “We can think of no better way to promote our Pixographs app than with Bobby as he makes his debut in a truck on asphalt. Race fans go visit Pixographss.com to learn more about the Pixographs app.  In conjunction with Bobby’s run at Martinsville, we have a big announcement coming before first practice on Friday!””

Pixographs is an amazing new app for iPhones and iPads that will change the way the world looks at photos!.  Imagine you’re in the airport and notice a famous celebrity in the waiting area. You could ask for their autograph or maybe ask to take a selfie photo with them, but now you can do both! Simply take the photo the same way you normally would, but then open your Pixographs app, choose the color of the “ink” you want and have the celebrity sign the photo with their finger!  Pixographs can be purchased from the app store at iTunes for just 99¢.

Calling the shots from atop the pit box will be famed crew chief Rick Ren.  “Rick and the Pierce family go back years, decades.,” notes team owner Mike Mittler.  “Rick’s known Bobby since he was born, so this is a really cool deal for them to work together at Martinsville.”

“I’ve know Rick forever. He and my Dad go way back,” says Pierce.  “I can’t wait to get to Martinsville and get the RPM Services, LLC / Pixographs App Chevy on the track.”

“The guys have worked so hard to get our trucks ready for Martinsville,” according to Mittler.  “Justin Jennings, Tyler Tanner, everyone on our team has really gone above and beyond to ensure we have quality trucks for the five week sprint that ends our season.  I can’t say enough about how hard these guys work so that we can compete at this level. Week in and week out, they are the absolute best!”
