HUMBOLDT, Kan. (May 16, 2017) – Alex Hill will return home this weekend to test what she has learned after spending the last couple of months on the road.

Hill is set to compete this Friday at Ohsweken Speedway in Ohsweken, Ontario, Canada, for the 22nd annual Season Opening Night.

“I’m pretty excited,” she said. “We’re going to see how much better we’ve gotten after being out on the road. We’ve learned a lot and I think that will show this weekend at a track we’re familiar with.”

Hill has two crate sprint car wins – both in 2015 – during her career at the track, but is hoping this weekend produces her first career 360ci winged sprint car triumph. A good result would also be productive for the team after it endured a couple of frustrating outings in Kansas last weekend.

“We had car troubles all weekend,” she said. “We just couldn’t catch a break. The first night the throttle was messed up. I tried to push it down and it wouldn’t go. I’d have to lift it with my foot. Then my brakes were seizing up. I wasn’t even touching them and they were on all race.”

Hill was unable to finish her heat race and she placed eighth in the B Main last Thursday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City following the mechanical woes.

The weekend wrapped up on Friday at Humboldt Speedway, where Hill finished fourth in a heat race to start the B Main on the outside of the front row.

“Everything was going well,” she said. “The car was fast. We were going to transfer to the A Main, but the car just stopped as I was going into turn one.”

Hill was running second just before the midpoint of the race when a fuel problem occurred. She was unable to resume action and the weekend ended early.
