Austin Hill led Team Toyota in Saturday evening’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Kansas Speedway with a career-best fifth-place finish. Hill was followed to the line by Toyota teammate Brandon Jones, who sits nine points above the Playoff cut line.

“It’s been a little bumpy road here and there. We’ve had some decent runs, we ran pretty good at Darlington and then to be able to come out here tonight and come home with a top-five is really good. It shows how hard this team really works and how good this organization is,”

I think that we were by far the Supra to beat on our fire-off speed, but as the run would go, I think they would just start their car so loose that it would take their car a while, but once the tire fell off and the pace fell down a little bit, that’s where they would come to life,” Jones said. “I think Texas is going to take care of it for us, I really do. We had Kyle (Busch) run earlier this year and I think we have a really good notebook off of him and some things we can do as drivers that will help us out a little bit.”
