While his FAS Lane Racing team was in Talladega last week battling Mother Nature, rookie NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Timmy Hill went to Prom. Timmy and his girlfriend, Lucy Kennedy, attended Prom at Ragsdale High School in Jamestown, North Carolina last Saturday night. This Saturday night Hill will strap in his No. 32 OXYwater Ford instead of a tuxedo and turn his attention to another lady - the challenging Darlington Raceway which is famously known as the "Lady in Black".
"With Terry (Labonte) taking the wheel at Talladega, that left me with an off weekend," stated Timmy. "Normally I am at the racetracks supporting my other FAS Lane Racing teammates but this weekend I stayed in North Carolina to go to Prom. Lucy and I had a great time dancing the night away but I am ready to get down with it at Darlington."
Hill, the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series Rookie of the Year, has two previous starts at Darlington in NASCAR Nationwide Series competition - both Top-20 finishes.
"Darlington is a tough track but I consider it one of my favorites," said Hill. "In my Nationwide Series rookie season I didn't know what to expect but after making my first laps on the track I knew I liked it. I know that racing at Darlington in a Sprint Cup car will be a different challenge but I am definitely up for it. With what I have learned already this year, going into Darlington I look for another strong run in our No. 32 OXYwater Ford and my best finish of the year."
The running of the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway will run this Saturday May 11th at 6:30 p.m. ET. The race can be viewed LIVE nationally on FOX and heard on affiliated MRN radio stations and on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.
