Hill had a perfect day in the Lone Star State, starting with the top qualifier and onto a great heat race battle where he took another win. With a projected long main event, Hill tucked into second on the start and stayed close to the leader. After 15 laps, the leader pulled off with an issue and Hill was able to take over the lead and hold on for five more laps, coming across the finish with his fourth consecutive win.

“I felt great all day,” said Hill. “Fastest qualifier, heat win and topped it off with a main event victory. It’s not exactly how I wanted it but we’ll take it anyway we can. Heading into the break on a win streak feels great.”

Austin Forkner
Forkner gained momentum all day, which turned to an exciting heat race where he led six laps before Hill overtook him. In the main event, he shot out to an awesome start and tucked in behind his teammate in third. He remained close the entire race, only finishing two seconds behind Hill.

“Today went well,” said Forkner. “I felt comfortable all day. I felt like I made huge strides today with my speed and was able to pace the leaders. After last week, it feels great to be able to put it back up on the box.”
