Timmy Hill said his victory in the iRacing Pro Invitational Series on March 29 came with one small regret — that he wasn’t able to celebrate with the winner’s traditional cowboy hat at Texas Motor Speedway.

Back then, track promoter Eddie Gossage took to social media to promise that Hill would get the winner’s laurels when the Fort Worth track’s race was rescheduled after the COVID-19 outbreak. Sunday, track officials stayed true to their promise.
“We did a Victory Lane photoshoot with the Texas hat, and that’s really neat to be recognized,” Hill told PRN Radio before Sunday’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 500. “That whole experience was neat to run well and get some exposure for our sponsors. I’m happy Texas Motor Speedway followed through and kept their word.”
