Hill ready for Nationwide Series debut
Looking to follow in former Champs footsteps
When Timmy Hill watched Trevor Bayne win the Daytona 500 this past Sunday, a grin came across his face. Hill, the 2009 Allison Legacy Series Champion knows that his career in NASCAR is following Bayne's very closely.
"Trevor won his Championship in the Allison Legacy Series in 2005 and in just a few short years, he is on top of the racing world after winning the Daytona 500. Timmy has the same aspirations and determination as Trevor and it says a lot about the strength of the Legacy Series," stated Dave Mitchell, Vice-President of Rick Ware Racing.
Hill will take to the Phoenix International Raceway on his 18th birthday, Thursday in preparation for the Bashas Supermarket 200.
Hill is following in the footsteps of Brian Vickers and Trevor Bayne from the Allison Legacy Series but looks to make his own path to the top ranks.
"The kid has put in a lot of time and effort to become a NASCAR driver. His hard work will begin to show dividends this weekend," stated Mitchell.
Timmy will start his campaign for the NASCAR Nationwide Series Rookie of the Year and run the remainder of the season in the #15 Ford Mustang of Rick Ware Racing. Hill will pilot the Fuel Doctor USA colors at Phoenix as he did all of 2010 in the ARCA, NASCAR K&N East and West Series' .
"I love running for Fuel Doctor USA. They have been behind me all last year and it's an honor to have them on my NASCAR Nationwide Series debut. Fuel Doctor is dedicated to changing the future in fuel efficiency and being environmentally friendly, things we can all relate to and to carry the banner for them again is awesome," stated Hill.
Timmy will take the wheel of the #15 Fuel Doctor Mustang for the running of the Bashas Supermarket 200 on Saturday February 26th at 5pm EST on ESPN2.
