Hill rallies to a 23rd place finish at Charlotte

Hill took to Charlotte Motor Speedway like a true veteran though he had never raced on the "big track." Hill has competed numerous times in the Legends and Allison Legacy Series but none of those series got to feel the effects of the high banks of Charlotte.

Hill qualified his #15 Nuts Off/Lilly Trucking Ford in the 33rd position but knew his car was going to be good for the race. "Our lap times never really fell off in practice compared to the leaders and knew that with some long green flag runs we would be really good," stated Hill.

Timmy was correct as he marched towards the front, swapping positions back and forth with his newest teammate, Jeffrey Earnhardt.

"We both we running really strong, and it was a lot of fun running with Jeffrey. Wish he could have made it to the finish. I had to focus on my task without him and keep digging and that's what we did."

After a long green flag run, Hill moved into the top 25 with just thirty laps remaining and picked off a few competitors to finish in the 23rd position and claim the Sunoco Rookie of the Race award.

"This car was awesome. This whole team knows we have a couple bullets in the chamber when we return here in the fall. Great run and team effort and I cant wait to get to Chicago."

Earnhardts strong run diminished with new gear

Jeffrey Earnhardt visited the Charlotte Motor Speedway for the first time this weekend and showed quickly just how strong he can be. Earnhardt had to qualify on time in the #41 Nuts Off/Pepsi Max/Fastwax Chevy and posted his ride in the 29th position.

Earnhardt quickly moved through the pack and into the 24th position with clean and accurate passes as he and the RWR team dialed the car in.

Just as quickly as things happen in racing, the rear of Earnhardt's car went up in smoke with a broken gear while he was running 22nd on lap 71.

"That was a brand new car with a brand new gear. We are going to have to look at it when we get back to the shop but we got a good view of how good this car and driver are. Jeffrey drove a great race until that point and we look forward to making up some ground with him when he gets back in the car," stated owner Rick Ware
