Broken Nozzle Line Foils Hillier at Lake Ozark Speedway

LAKE OF THE OZARKS, MO (May 12) – Chad Hillier appeared to be on his way to the best finish of his World of Outlaws career Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway when a broken nozzle line sent him to the pits.

“We were rolling around pretty good in the feature,” the driver of the #5C DIRT Inc. Maxim said. “We were maintaining, but the track started taking some rubber. On lap 14, we broke a #8 nozzle line off. It broke it off where it’s welded on to the fitting. There was no way to fix it, so we had to call it a night. We’re going to put a guard on there this week to keep that from happening again. We were holding our own, but we were getting better as the laps went on.”

Hillier, the fastest qualifier at Paducah International Raceway in April, was the 11th-fastest qualifier in the 30-car field at Lake Ozark, a semi-banked, 1/3-mile oval.

“The night started out pretty well for us,” Hillier said. “We were the first out to qualify and the track was run in, but it wasn’t completely blown off. We still managed to qualify 11th though. We didn’t have a very good heat race. We were pushed above the cushion on the first lap, but they were taking six to the feature so we made it.”

Hillier, who recorded his career-best 12th-place finish at Tri-State Speedway on April 21st, was running 12th when the nozzle link broke Saturday.

Hillier and his DIRT Inc. teammates will be back in action Tuesday at Lernerville Speedway and at Williams Grove Speedway Thursday and Friday.

“We go to Sarver Tuesday for Lernerville,” Hillier said. “That’s a pretty neat place. I’ve been there a lot, but never raced there, so I’m excited. I have an aunt and uncle who live in Pittsburgh, so I’ll try to get them to come out. They’re not really into racing, but we’ll try to get them out anyway. A couple of years ago, I stayed in a hotel near there for about a week with nothing to do. I was just hanging around, and found out six months later they live about two miles away. I’m looking forward to running Williams Grove, too. Both tracks are really fast and have slick competition, so we want to qualify decent and do our best. It will be an accomplishment just to make the show out there.”
