Hill Rallies at Kansas Speedway
Austin Hill Rallies for Third at Kansas Speedway
Hill sits 19-points above the Playoff cutline. “It was a good run for us. Our Toyota Tsusho Tundra was really good before we got damage at the end of stage two,” Hill said. “It’s good for us to rebound and get the position that we thought we should have gotten. We had a shot at winning today, but once we got the damage, our aero was just way too loose and it just changed the truck completely. All in all, a good day for us and we’ll go on to the next one.”
Three Toyota rookies - Chandler Smith (fifth), Christian Eckes (sixth) and Derek Kraus (ninth) - drove to top-10 finishes, while Timothy Peters, who was subbing for Stewart Friesen, earned a seventh-place finish in his first Truck Series race in over a year. Raphaël Lessard finished 33rd after being involved in an incident early in the event.The Truck Series heads to the Lonestar State for action at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday, October 25th.
