Hill Wins at Dover

Dover, DE- (September 27, 2013) Austin Hill from Winston, Ga., conquered the high-banked Dover mile oval in the Drive Sober 150 presented by Delaware Office of Highway Safety Friday afternoon. It was Hill's first win in his seventh career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East start.

"I can't thank everyone enough -- the LaJoie’s and all they've done for me," said Hill. "This track is really hard. It's a fast track. I've never been on a track this fast. It gets pretty intense. On Lap 75, though, I knew we had a shot at winning. We just had to get back to the front."

Don Rich Ford to Celebrate Local Georgia Star Austin Hill’s Racing Season on September 9th

Villa Rica, GA- (October 28, 2013) Don Rich Ford will hold an open house celebration at their Ford dealership on Saturday November 9th from 10-4 at their Villa Rica location. The day will be to honor Austin Hill and his 2013 racing season and big win at the Dover International Speedway.

Hill who hails from Winston, GA recently completed his 2013 campaign in the K&N Pro Series with his first career NASCAR win in the 150 Driver Sober 150 at the race track called the Monster Mile. Austin’s Don Rich Ford race car will be on display at the dealership along with a cook-out and free t-shirts. Fans can meet the 19 year old from Douglas County and get free hero cards as well. “It’s pretty big for us to have a local boy meet our customers and share his big win at Dover,” said Don Rich Ford’s Bart Smith.” “It was neat all year to turn on the TV and see Don Rich Ford up at the front of the pack especially racing against the Sprint Cup backed teams. When Austin won the race at Dover it was so exciting for our dealership to share in the excitement.

Don Rich Ford hopped on board the Hill Brothers Racing No. 13 for the K&N races as a primary sponsor and helped Hill campaign a powerful Ford for five races in 2013. Things are looking good for Hill to add many races to his 2014 schedule with hopes of running for the championship next year.

“I can’t thank Don Rich Ford enough for being a big part of our 2013 season,” exclaimed Austin Hill. “We are hoping to meet hundreds of fans on September 9th at the dealership. I want to personally meet all of the Georgia race fans in the area and give you the opportunity to see my race car at the dealership.”

Austin Hill Wins His First K&N Pro Series Race at the Monster Mile

Dover, DE- (September 27, 2013) Austin Hill from Winston, Ga., conquered the high-banked Dover mile oval in the Drive Sober 150 presented by Delaware Office of Highway Safety Friday afternoon. It was Hill's first win in his seventh career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East start.

"I can't thank everyone enough -- the LaJoie’s and all they've done for me," said Hill. "This track is really hard. It's a fast track. I've never been on a track this fast. It gets pretty intense. On Lap 75, though, I knew we had a shot at winning. We just had to get back to the front."

Hill's No. 13 Don Rich Ford/A&D Welding Ford led a parade of rookies who captured the top three spots and six of the top eight. Hill took the lead on Lap 88 from Delaware-native CJ Faison, who led a race-high 77 laps, and led the rest of the way. A late-race caution set up a final four-lap dash for the finish. Boston and Benjamin briefly went three-wide with Hill on the restart, but Hill was able to emerge with the lead. He beat Boston to the line by .412 seconds.

"I got a pretty good restart," said Hill. "But going into Turn 1, Kyle Benjamin held his ground coming off the corner and I got a little free and caused Justin Boston to get under me. And when he did I knew going into the third turn I just had to hold it wide open or at least try to and that was the only way I was going to win. When I came off turn 4 and I knew I had the lead, I knew there was nothing stopping me."

Hill's previous best finish was seventh at Richmond in April. The win also marked the fifth trip to Victory Lane for Hill's crew chief, Andy Santerre.

"He helped me out a lot," Hill said of Santerre. "He just kept talking to me, telling me to stay calm, you can get them back, you can get back to the front. The restarts were the hardest for me, especially how fast this track is. You're out of the throttle for only a couple seconds and then you're back in it. I can’t thank my parents and grandparents for all they have done for me said the jubilant racer. This is a dream come true.”

The Drive Sober 150 will air on Fox Sports 1 on Sunday, Oct. 13 at noon. It will also replay on Monday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m.

Austin Hill Ready for K&N Pro Series Monster Mile Challenge

213

Charlotte, NC-It has been called the Monster Mile and Austin Hill is ready to battle the concrete one mile oval in Dover, Delaware. Known for its lightning fast racing and banked surface the Get Sober 150 should be a great challenge for the Georgia teen.

Hill is coming off a rough day at the Iowa Speedway when he lost his engine prior to receiving the checkered flag. He and his Corey LaJoie prepared team believe that this will be a good event for the No. 13 Don Rich Ford/A&D Welding race car.

“I am really looking forward to getting back in my K&N Pro Series car, said Hill.” I have always liked Dover on TV so getting to race here is great. I am sure that Corey and the guys will give me a fast race car.”

Hill has had an up and down season in 2013 but feels like he gets better every time he straps into his camouflaged painted Ford. “It has been a great learning year for me and I feel like we get more competitive every race,” added Hill. “It is a shame that the Rockingham race was cancelled. I was looking forward to racing there, but for now we can focus on bringing my Don Rich Ford home with a solid finish.

This season Austin Hill will honor his friend and racing mentor Beau Slocumb with the camouflage design on his race car that was a fixture on all of the cars Slocumb raced. Beau lost his battle with cancer in 2011 and will be remembered as a young man with a heart of gold and a wealth of racing talent.
