Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Austin Hill
Johnny Sauter is motivated to win this weekend to put himself back into championship contention.
Brandon Jones will start Friday night’s race inside the top 10, which gives him an early advantage over the rest of the field.
While avoiding the chalk play in Kyle Busch may be a risk, Johnny Sauter checks in at a much more affordable rate, has produced five victories at Texas and finished third in this race last year.
Johnny Sauter should be one of the faster trucks in Saturday's race, he has the potential to win and likely will also add finish differential points if he can make it to the finish
C.J. Radune says that Kyle Busch being one of only two trucks series drivers to have multiple wins makes him a standout this week.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
