Kansas Speedway Race Recap

“Again, I’m excited to represent Retro Infinity this weekend at Kansas in their first Sprint Cup race,” said Hill. “I have always enjoyed being able to race at the fast 1.5 mile race track in Kansas City. This is the very place that I have scored my best Sprint Cup Series finish, which brings an extra level of confidence going into this race.”

“The weekend started off on a good note with the car being pretty close off the hauler. As a team we worked through the first round of practice very well making great changes to the Retro Infinity Chevy in preparation for the race.”

“Qualifying rolled around next. After solely working on “race trim” in first practice, we tried to gage where to start qualifying based off our team car. We busted off a lap of 188.5 mph which started us from the 40th starting position. We just missed the handling slightly in qualifying but I knew with 2 practices the next day, that we would get things ironed out.”

“As the green flag flew, we found out the track had changed dramatically from practice. This sent us scattering for changes. After our first pit stop of the race, we immediately made the car better and began to march forwards. We began to pick other drivers off and gain positions. Each stop we made, we made our Retro Infinity Chevy better and better. After an eventful day where even the Chase contenders suffered tragedy’s from this race track, we were able to bring home a 33rd place finish.”

“I’m vey proud of how the team rallied together to make great changes to the Retro Infinity Chevy all throughout the event. We didn’t start off how we wanted but everyone kept a cool head and we made a very competitive car out of the day. Now I’m really looking forward to out next race in Charlotte!”

Timmy Hill heads to conquer The Monster Mile with new sponsor!

“I’m excited to represent Retro Infinity this weekend at Dover,” said Hill. “It’s always refreshing to welcome a new sponsor to the sport, especially one that can relate to NASCAR fans across the country. We had a solid run at Dover earlier this year, so we’ll return this weekend and hope we can do a little better.”

 

“I enjoy competing at Dover,” added Hill. “It’s a cool track, but one you need to have finesse in order to conquer. Handling is important for our No. 23 Retro Infinity Chevrolet Camaro, so I’m sure we’ll spend practicing making sure we’ll have a competitive piece for the race. Everyone at Rick Ware Racing wants to have a good run for Retro Infinity Inc. in their NASCAR debut.”

 

“As the weekend began, I felt that we started off on the right foot making great gains,” said Hill. “Our crew chief George Church gave me a good handling car right off the truck which allowed us to only have to make small adjustments.” “We rolled right into qualifying with our Retro Infinity car feeling pretty comfortable with where we were with our setup. We ended up qualifying 27th.”

 

“Believing that we had a better car than that we went into the race with a great mindset,” Hill stated. “When the green flag dropped we began passing cars right off the bat, advancing our position. Throughout the day we made good calls, good pit stops, and good passes. We tried to get a little greedy at the end and we gambled on a wave around which gave us one of our laps back. However that plan backfired as no caution flew and we were forced to pit under green.”

 

“We ended the race in the 25th position. To come out of the Monster Mile without a scratch is a win in itself. We made a pit call that we all believe was going to work but we can’t win every battle. Now I can’t wait to head to Kansas with the Retro Infinity car and do it all over again!”
