For the past 14 years, only two drivers have competed in more than 75 races in a single season across all three of the top NASCAR series. Kyle Busch raced in 75 plus races over the course of season multiple times, with his largest number being 86. Ross Chastain also reached a start count over 75 in a season, competing in 77 races in 2019. That achievement was reached during the 2020 NASCAR season by a driver that many fans would not have expected.
Timmy Hill competed in a total of 75 races in 2020, while competing a full season in the NASCAR Cup Series for Carl Long. While Hill did not achieve the success some of the top teams in the series have, he competed in a full season of NASCAR Cup Series races, which is an achievement that many drivers dream to reach in a career. Hill’s biggest success came in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, where he would contest 29 of the scheduled 33 races. Splitting the season driving for his Cup Series owner Carl Long and Shigeaki Hatori’s HRE team, Hill would claim two top ten finishes on the year, with his best finish of third coming at the opening race of the season at the Daytona International Speedway. Hill would also add ten Gander RV & Outdoor Truck Series starts driving for his own Hill Motorsports team, capturing two top tens on the season.
