NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rookie Timmy Hill used his previous learning experiences and success at the 1.5-mile layout of Kansas Speedway to put forth a strong outing in the FAS Lane Racing No. 32 OXYwater Ford on Sunday. However his outing would be ruined after receiving damage from fellow competitors tangling coming off Turn 2. The damage sent Hill and his team to the garage area briefly for repairs before returning to the track to complete the running of the STP 400 in the 33rd position.
"That was just very disappointing," stated Hill. "The FAS Lane Racing team gave me a phenomenal car this weekend. Our No. 32 OXYwater Ford was fast right off the trailer and after a small adjustment on our first pit stop it was awesome. It is just unfortunate that we got some damage in a melee coming off Turn 2 and it sent us to the garage for some necessary repairs. In all it was a great weekend for me and the team and we look to build on this effort moving forth."
The 33rd place finish kept FAS Lane Racing in the 37th position in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series owners points.
"Timmy and everyone on this OXYwater team did a great job this week," said FAS Lane Racing team owner Frank Stoddard. "Last weekend at Texas was very disappointing for us but we did learn some valuable stuff that really seems to be helping Timmy get more comfortable. I look forward to more performances like the one we had today in the future."
FAS Lane Racing and their No. 32 OXYwater™ Ford will head to Richmond International Raceway this weekend for the running of the Toyota Owners 400 on Saturday April 27th at 7:30 p.m. ET. The race can be viewed LIVE nationally on FOX and heard on affiliated MRN radio stations and on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio 90.
