Austin E. Hill (born April 21, 1994) is an American professional stock car racing driver. He currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, driving the No. 16 Toyota Tundra for Hattori Racing Enterprises.

Racing career[edit]

Starting racing when he was six, Hill climbed the ladder racing various disciplines such as Legend cars and Bandolero racing.[1]

K&N Pro Series East[edit]

After driving sporadically in 2012, Hill captured a win in 2013 despite only running five races that season.[2] His first full season in the series (2014) started off slow but ended well, winning the final two races to finish fifth in the points.[3] Hill continued his career in the K&N Pro Series East with a strong 2015 season. Driving for a family-owned team, he captured a pole, two wins and failed to finish only once in a season that left him third in points.[4] After switching his focus to the Camping World Truck Series in 2016, he only ran one race in the series, finishing ninth.[5]

ARCA Racing Series[edit]

Hill debuted in ARCA racing at the 2015 season opener, avoiding wrecks to finish just outside the top ten at Daytona International Speedway.[6]

Gander Outdoors Truck Series[edit]

Hill debuted in 2014 with RBR Enterprises, with finishes of 26th at Martinsville Speedway and 20th at Homestead-Miami Speedway during that season.[7] Hill landed a part-time ride with Empire Racing in the 2014 season, crashing at Daytona International Speedway and recording a best finish of 16th (at Dover International Speedway) in three other starts that year.[8] For the start of 2016, Hill announced that he would again run the Daytona race with Empire, and then switching to his family-owned Austin Hill Racing for a part-time schedule.[9] He failed to qualify for Daytona and four other races early in the season, and had a best finish of 15th through the twelfth race of the year.[10] Picking up his schedule after that and running some races in an entry bought out from Young's Motorsports, Hill started to experience more consistent success, leading up to his first top-ten, a tenth place at Martinsville Speedway.[11]

On January 8, 2019, it was announced that Hill joined Hattori Racing Enterprises' No. 16 Toyota Tundra full-time.[12] Hill scored his record first win at the season-opening Daytona race.[13]

Xfinity Series[edit]

On June 16, 2019, it was announced that Hill will make his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at the July Daytona race in the Hattori Racing Enterprises No. 61 Toyota.[14]

Personal life[edit]

Hill attended West Georgia Technical College.

Austin and Ashlyn were married on May 24, 2014. The couple has one daughter.
