AUSTIN HILL QUOTE:
“I am really looking forward to getting to New Hampshire (Motor Speedway) this weekend and hitting the track in my Young’s Motorsports No. 02 Ford F-150. Anytime you get the chance to race on a track you’ve had previous experience at, its a plus and I believe we have a solid truck that we are brining this weekend. My crew has been hard at work getting this new chassis ready and we’re expecting a solid finish this weekend in the UNOH 175.”
