Timmy Hill and his own Hill Motorsports will head into the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season for their second season.
The team made nine starts in 2019 with Timmy Hill and his brother Tyler Hill splitting season time behind the wheel of the No. 56 Chevrolet.
Timmy went on to earn one top-five at Martinsville, his first top-five of his Truck Series career and three top-20 finishes.
On the other hand, Tyler tallied up one top-15 and two top-20 finishes. His best finish of the season was an 11th place finish at Kentucky Speedway last July.
When Kickin’ the Tires spoke to Timmy Hill at Homestead-Miami Speedway in November he had hopes of the organization running the full 2020 Truck Series schedule.
“We’re really trying to build our program and add more races. Our goal next year is to run full-time. We’re certainly going to try (for full-time) the only question mark we have right now is whether we can get a superspeedway truck put together for Daytona,” said Hill. “If we can’t do that, we might have to skip Daytona, but our goal is to at least run the second race and run the rest after that. We’ll see what we can build and what we can come up with through the winter as far as Daytona goes.”
Speaking of Daytona, Hill will be there attempting to make the 62nd annual Daytona 500 for Carl Long’s MBM Motorsports.
With the season opener NextEra Energy 250 for the Truck Series on the horizon, Hill told Kickin’ the Tires it’s still uncertain if Hill Motorsports will be at Daytona.
“Still working on a scenario that would allow us to be in Daytona with the truck. Still uncertain right now,” said Hill.
Hill stated at Homestead that he will return to MBM Motorsports this season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, as well as the NASCAR Cup Series.
In 2019, Hill tallied up one top-10 at Bristol Motor Speedway, in addition to seven top-20 finishes in NXS competition.
Currently, in his career he has three top-10 finishes in eight NXS starts at Daytona, and one top-15 in his lone Truck Series start there.
“MBM has the inventory to run Cup and Xfinity I think it’s just trying to figure the direction for 2020. The sky is the limit, I’ve seen great things with both programs, and I’ve been a part of great things with both programs. I’m excited to see what we can do there. I’ll definitely be busy next year and heavily involved with MBM, said Hill in November.”
