Austin Hill’s contract is for Xfinity next year; could include Cup in the future

In an interview Saturday at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International, [Austin] Hill confirmed his new contract extension does not necessarily preclude him from moving up to the Cup Series.

“Next year, it will definitely be Xfinity, for sure. Going forward after that, it all depends,” Hill said. “If things open up – let’s say RCR is able to acquire a third charter or something like that – there’s no telling what could happen.

“As of right now, it is structured for Xfinity for the next two years, but there again, things could change and the way the contract is structured and all, it could obviously change. Maybe at the end of next year we might have a better understanding of where we might be.
