The running of the NRA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night was another one of those experiences as the team and driver worked together for just the third time this season.

While Hill struggled to get the handling of his No. 32 OXYwater™ Ford to his liking, the 334-lap event proved a valuable learning experience for the combination on their way to a 36th place finish. "We battled with the handling of our OXYwater™ Ford all night but together we worked hard and learned some things that made the car a little more comfortable for me," stated Hill.

"A big part of the learning experience for me in the Sprint Cup Series is to log laps and complete races. We did that tonight and I think what we learned will help us here in the coming weeks. For sure this was not the end result that we wanted but we will move on and head to Kansas next week."

The tough 36th place finish dropped FAS Lane Racing to 37th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series owners points.

"This definitely was not the finish we were expecting this week," said FAS Lane Racing team owner Frank Stoddard. "We are still working hard as a team to find out what best suits Timmy and I think we hit on a few things in the second half of the race tonight. This OXYwater™ team will take that and head to Kansas and focus on improving together."
