The rookie in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will take on the 600 race for the first time at Charlotte Motor Speedway
MOORESVILLE, N.C. - (May 21, 2013) - NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rookie driver Timmy Hill and the FAS Lane Racing team prepare for the grueling 600 miles that lay ahead this week. Hill and his No. 32 OXYwater Ford head to Charlotte Motor Speedway this week for the very popular running of the Coca-Cola 600. While the Memorial Day weekend event gives the FAS Lane Racing team a race in their hometown it also provides a chance to honor those that have served our great country.
Hill, the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series Rookie of the Year, has five previous NASCAR starts at Charlotte Motor Speedway as well as a start last weekend in the Sprint Showdown.
"This holiday weekend is a fantastic racing weekend as well as one to remember the men and women who have given their lives for our freedom," said FAS Lane Racing owner Frank Stoddard. "This will be our second race at Charlotte with Timmy and he has shown great improvement when he gets to a track for the second time. We look forward to a clean race and bringing our No. 32 OXYwater Ford home with a solid finish."
The running of the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway will run this Sunday May 26th at 5:30 p.m. ET. The race can be viewed LIVE nationally on FOX and heard on affiliated PRN radio stations and on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.
