Austin Hill will move to the NASCAR Xfinity Series for Richard Childress Racing in 2022, RCR announced Oct. 29.
Hill will run full time alongside fellow RCR newcomer and soon-to-be-former Camping World Truck Series competitor Sheldon Creed, who was announced earlier this fall to drive RCR’s No. 2.
Hill’s car number was not announced at press time.
Since 2018, Hill has competed full time in the Truck Series, driving for Hattori Racing Enterprises starting in 2019. In 117 starts, he has eight wins, 26 top fives and 51 top 10s, with a best finish of fifth in the points in 2019.
He’s also started 15 races in the Xfinity Series since 2019, all for HRE, with a top five and four top 10s.
Hill’s replacement in HRE’s No. 16 has not yet been announced.
