LAT Images #16: Austin Hill, Hattori Racing Enterprises, Toyota Tundra Gunma Toyopet

With three weeks off before the next NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race, we’ll break down the superspeedway performances for two Playoff contenders each week. This week we’ll focus on the top two seeds going into the Round of 6 – Brett Moffitt and Austin Hill.

Brett Moffitt – No. 24 GMS Racing Chevrolet: Superspeedways haven’t been Moffitt’s best friend in his limited appearances at the venues. Moffitt has only made one visit to Talladega – this race last fall. He started eighth and finished 17th there en route to his Gander Trucks title. He has three starts at NASCAR’s other superspeedway – Daytona. His best finish there was 22nd in 2017. Since then he’s had a pair of 26th-place finishes.

Austin Hill – No. 16 Hattori Racing Enterprises Toyota: This fall will mark Hill’s third trip to Talladega Superspeedway, he finished 10th there last fall and was 22nd when he raced in Alabama in 2015. Hill has already tamed Daytona – winning the season opener this year to clinch his Playoff berth early. In his other two races at Daytona, he placed 30th (2015) and 11th (2018).
