Hayley, who drives the ThorSport Racing No. 13 Cabinets by Hayley Toyota Tundra started fifth in the 130-lap event at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The top-five starting position was Hayley’s second in just two starts at the 1.54-mile track.

After the strong race, he finished in second place, a career-best for the sophomore driver, and his best finish of 2016.

“It was a great run for our Cabinets by Hayley Tundra team - best career finish”, said Hayley. “I can’t complain about that, but I just know in the back of my head if Matt Crafton was in my truck, he could have won that. I just – I needed to run a little bit harder, but great run to start up this year. This was my hardest track all year. I needed to get this one over with and to come out of here second, I’m pretty happy with the team and proud of everything Toyota, everybody has done for me. It’s just an amazing start to the year.”
