Austin Hill has been fast all season long in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, but circumstances just hadn’t worked out for him to take a Stage win, that is, until Friday at Kansas Speedway.

The driver of the No. 16 Hattori Racing Enterprises Toyota Tundra flat-out dominated the 30-lap stage, as he led 20 laps and cruised across the line ahead of ThorSport Racing’s Ben Rhodes.

Zane Smith was third and he was followed by fellow rookies Ty Majeski, Derek Kraus and Christian Eckes in fourth thru sixth.

Ross Chastain was seventh, while Sheldon Creed, Brandon Jones and Tanner Gray rounded out the top-10 in Stage 2.

Brett Moffitt, who won Stage 1, finished 11th in Stage 2.

There are now 74 laps to decide a winner of the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 200.
