Austin Hill Reunites with Young’s

By  | 

After a successful outing last year, Austin Hill will once again be behind the wheel of the No.  02 Young’s Motorsports truck this season on a limited basis, beginning with this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

“We’re happy to have Austin Hill apart of the Young’s Motorsports platform,” said Tyler Young. “Austin has the potential and the credentials to help elevate our team to the next level. He is a profound short track race with a niche for intermediate racing too.

“The addition of Austin doesn’t take away from the stuff we’re working on around the clock with our K&N Pro Series East team and the hopeful expansion of Young’s Motorsports in NASCAR. There’s a lot of good things going on that we’re proud of.”

A two-time K&N Pro Series East winner, Hill hopes to score his second career top-10 finish after posting a 12th place finish last year on the 1.54-mile oval.

“I am really excited to kick off our 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway,” offered the Winston, Georgia native. “As long back as I can remember, my family was going to Atlanta, first as fans, then to race in the Legends Series.

“I’m also really excited about teaming up with Tyler Young and Young’s Motorsports. None of this would be possible without our great partners, who make all of this possible, Alien Gear Holsters, Lawless Jerky, The Lone Survivor Foundation, KYSEK Ice Chests and Veterans Coffee Company.”

The team could use a good run as Daytona ended in disappointment, with Young finishing 23rd after being caught in one of the big wrecks.
