Career high for Hill at Dega
Timmy Hill looked like a season veteran though his only vision of Talladega has been his iRacing simulator. Hill entered the weekend with Sunoco Rookie of the Year points lead but that did not stop him from putting the pressure on the veteran leaders.
Hill qualified in the 34th position and quickly paired up with another rookie, Blake Koch and set sail on the leaders. The two rookies charged up into the 20th position and was becoming a duo to watch throughout the event, passing veterans at every turn.
In the closing laps, Hill charged up to the 14th position, dodging three seperate wrecks in the direct path of his unsponsored #15 Ford to capture his career high and Rookie of the Race honors.
"This race was a blast. It was a great car and a great team effort. It felt awesome to contend and finally show what this team is capable of. With momentum finally on the positive side, its time to hit the Music City."
