Timmy Hill and brother Tyler Hill has announced the formation of “Hill Motorsports” which will compete in the Gander Outdoors Trucks Series. The team will run the #56 number.
Hill Motorsports plans to run a limited Truck Series schedule in 2019 with Timmy Hill and his brother Tyler Hill who recently made his first Xfinity Series start of the year last weekend at ISM (Raceway.
“I’m excited and nervous at the same time,” said Timmy Hill. “We’re looking forward to going to Martinsville and have a successful showing. This is a big undertaking for us, but we’ve acquired some good equipment and I hope we’re able to make the most of the opportunity.”“We bought two trucks from MDM Motorsports and we’ve been putting those together through the winter and those have been coming together pretty well like we’ve hoped. I’ll be sharing the ride with my brother Tyler. We’re roughly looking at 10 races, we’re still trying to finalize the schedule, but we’re going to dive in and try to make it successful.”
Hill Motorsports will utilize the No. 56 number during competition, which Timmy Hill says has significance and brings a larger family dynamic into the realm.
“The No. 56 has a lot of meaning to me and to our family,” Hill mentioned. “It’s important to us because it’s the number my dad used when he ran his own team in the 1990s. Our team is based in Thomasville, North Carolina and I’ve been fortunate enough to have the support of my dad, but also from owners that I’ve driven for Carl Long and Rick Ware who have been more than accommodating to help us with this journey.”
Timmy Hill says taking on the ownership role in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series is a huge responsibility, but a title he embraces and is looking forward to the challenges and benefits it brings.
“I’ll be the driver and owner, which is pretty neat,” added Hill. “You don’t really see that much in NASCAR anymore. I’m excited to bring that aspect back. I know Jordan (Anderson) does and he has made great strides in building his program from the ground up.”
