2020 Fantasy Outlook
It would take Hill a little time to get some traction with his new race team last season. After a cold start he would come on strong down the stretch to be one of the hottest drivers of the last eight races of last season. Hill grabbed three of his four victories in those final eight events, including the win in the season finale at Homestead. However, it wasn't enough to advance into the final round of the playoffs and Hill would finish fifth in the final driver standings. His Top 5 and Top 10 totals reflected two cold spells in the first half the year and came in at 7 and 13 respectively. The 6 DNF's that the team suffered affected those totals too. Hill returns to this team in 2020 and will once again be paired with crew chief Scott Zipadelli. The duo should up the ante in the upcoming season, and display more consistency as they throw their hats in the ring for the championship. Read Past Outlooks
Wins Kansas Truck Race
Gander Outdoors Truck
July 24, 2020
Hill won the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 200 Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Kansas Speedway Friday night.
ANALYSIS
The Hattori Racing driver dominated most of the night at the Kansas oval. Hill started sixth on the grid but raced into the lead by lap 41. He would battle with a number of different drivers over the second-half of the race, but his 65 laps led would be a race-high. The long green-flag run to the finish would see HIll build nearly a 3-second lead over Brett Moffitt by the checkered flag. It was his first victory of the season and fifth-career win.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
The 24-year-old Georgian gets a major team upgrade in 2019. Hill takes over the championship-winning ride at Hattori Racing. This was the truck that Brett Moffitt piloted to six wins and the Gander Outdoors Truck Series title last season. Hill is coming off his best season of truck series racing at Young's Motorsports last year. He collected six Top-10 finishes and wound up a respectable 11th in the overall driver standings with this small race team. Hill will now team with crew chief, Scott Zipadelli, and attempt to hang onto the performance that Moffitt posted with this outfit last year. This young driver won't post six wins and a championship, but he should make a pretty big splash in 2019.
Last year was a part-time effort by Hill at the Young's Motorsports team, but they'll be going full-time in the upcoming season. The No. 02 truck was split between a handful of drivers, but Hill will have the driver's seat all to himself in 2018. The team would grab three Top-10 finishes last season, and one of those was credited to Hill at Kentucky Speedway. In his 12 starts he nabbed five Top-15 finishes in addition to the Top 10. That's a pretty good base to build on for this season. Hill will enjoy the leadership of Chad Kendrick atop the pit box, and look to improve in his first full-time schedule.
