After a short hiatus from behind the wheel, Timmy Hill returns this week to his driving duties of FAS Lane Racing's No. 32 OXYwater™ Ford. Hill will make his second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start of the season in the running of the NRA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night.
"I am excited to climb back into the No. 32 OXYwater™ Ford in Texas," said Hill. "I think the team and I were on the same page on making great adjustments to the car through practice at California but our day was unfortunately cut short. Going into Texas, I have high hopes and I know the FAS Lane Racing team has big hopes to rebound from California with a strong effort in Texas. As a driver, my favorite style of racetracks is the 1.5 mile race tracks. I have always taken a liking to them and had my better runs at the speedways. The high banks at Texas are going to make us have to work on the car to make it fast in all the grooves from bottom to top. That is what I will be looking for in practice and when we get that dialed in, I know we will have a great race!"
Hill, the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series Rookie of the Year, piloted the No. 32 OXYwater™ Ford last month at Auto Club Speedway but was plagued by a rare failure and relegated to a disappointing 39th-place finish. Hill has four previous starts at the Fort Worth, Texas area track in NASCAR Nationwide Series competition.
Also joining Timmy and FAS Lane Racing this week as Associate Sponsors on the No. 32 OXYwater™ Ford are Front Row Tailgating and Laquinta Inn and Suites Dallas Arlington South.
The running of the NRA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway will run this Saturday April 13th at 7:00 p.m. ET. The race can be viewed LIVE nationally on FOX and heard on affiliated PRN radio stations and on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.
