After aborting his efforts in 2012 for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year award, Timmy Hill will attempt for the 2013 honor with FAS Lane Racing. Hill will drive 18 to 20 races for the team. Ken Schrader and Terry Labonte will fill out most of the rest of the schedule.
Hill will have his work cut out for him as he will be facing off against Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. and Danica Patrick for Rookie of the Year. Both are racing the full schedule and will be with teams that are in the upper echelons of the sport.
Hill’s comments per the press release:
“FAS Lane has built themselves a great team and the guys in the shop have been working hard getting the cars ready for this season,” said Hill. “Terry Labonte and Ken Schrader bring a wealth of knowledge to the program and will be great mentors to me while I attempt to earn Rookie of the Year. Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. are great race car drivers, and I am looking forward to battling with them on the track for that title.”
Sponsorship will be in the form of U.S. Chrome on the #32 Ford Fusion that is owned by Frank Stoddard.
