Austin Hill Hits the Jackpot in Las Vegas

Austin Hill came into Friday evening’s NASCAR Gander & RV Outdoors Series Truck Series race looking to rebound after his Playoff opening race at Bristol. Rebound he did, as the Hattori Racing Enterprises driver won Friday evening's race to lock his spot in the next round of the Truck Series Playoffs.

Hill held off a furious charge from Sheldon Creed in the closing 30 laps of the event where the duo rode the wall around the Las Vegas-based facility. This marks Hill’s second victory of the 2020 season and leaves him worry free as the Truck Series heads to Talladega Superspeedway.

“The ironic thing was that right after Bristol, right after we took the checkered flag I said, ‘let’s keep our heads up, we’re going to go to Vegas and win it.’ Heck, we did it,” Hill said.

Team Toyota’s Stewart Friesen finished fourth when all was said and done, “We’ve been making changes all year long, and I think we have finally got something going in the right direction and a good balance,” Friesen said. “We missed it a little bit on the long run there, but we know where we were at and we know how to get it better already, and I’m looking forward to racing the rest of the season.”
