After earning an 11th place finish last week at Texas Motor Speedway, Austin Hill and his No. 02 Young’s Motorsports team head to Phoenix International Raceway for Friday night’s Lucas Oil 150. After debuting with the team as a major associate sponsor at Texas, United Rentals will rejoin Hill as the primary sponsor for the seasons second to last race.
This Week’s Young’s Motorsports Ford at Phoenix … Austin Hill will pilot chassis No. 012 from the Young’s Motorsports stable. Chassis 012 most recently raced at New Hampshire Motor Speedway where a broken brake caliper ended the team’s day early in 22nd place.
Hill at Phoenix… Hill will be making his first career NCWTS start at the 1.022-mile track in Avondale, Arizona. While he will be debuting in NCWTS, Hill has one previous start at the facility in 2014, in the NASCAR K&N Pro West Series, where he started 5th and finished 15th after a late race accident took him from contention.
Finale for Hill… Friday nights race will mark the 12th and final NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event of 2017 for Hill in the No. 02 Ford. Hill’s teammate, Tyler Young, will compete in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

AUSTIN HILL QUOTE:
“I’m really excited to head to Phoenix (International Raceway) this week and make my first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at the track. We were leading the NASCAR K&N West Series race there in 2014, before getting taken out in a wreck, and I’ve always wanted to come back. I can’t thank United Rentals enough for coming onboard as our primary sponsor for this event. We had a great time working with them at Texas (Motor Speedway) and this weekend looks to be that much better.”
