For Austin Hill last season ended with a big win at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and this weekend the Georgia native returns to South Beach to defend his win. The current points leader is 21 points up on second place Zane Smith heading into this weekend.
Hill will definitely be one to watch on Saturday as he has made four series starts at Homestead posting a win and an average finish of 14.8.
“Yeah, it’s always really fun to go back to a track that you’ve won at,” said Hill. “It gives you a lot of confidence, going in. We were really good there last year. It’s going to be a little bit different this year with it being a little bit hotter and when we are racing. It’s probably going to be slicker. It’s going to be nice to have the Xfinity cars go out first to get some rubber down on the track. I’m excited. I’m excited to get going.”
Hill’s early points lead is attributed to his solid performances this season finishing in the top-10 in all four starts in 2020.
