Mr. consistent Austin Hill has lead the points in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series without a win, on Friday nite Hill picked up his first victory of the season at Kansas in the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 200. The truck series will race a doubleheader this weekend with the NASCAR revamped schedule.in less that 24 hrs the trucks will return to the track at 11:30 (MST) on Saturday

“Driver, crew chief and engineer — everybody comes together as a whole to see what kind of plan you can come up with to make your truck that much better for the next day,” Hill said. “So I think it’s really cool. It gives you a second chance to go out there and redeem yourself if you did have a bad night.

“Oh, man, it’s awesome,” said Hill, who increased his series lead to 40 points over second-place Ben Rhodes. “We’ve been working so hard this season. We’ve been really consistent. Last week was a bummer, having engine troubles.
“I told the guys before coming here, ‘You know we finished fourth here last year—let’s finish three spots better.’ And I’ll be danged if we didn’t.”
