After Austin Hill found himself on the receiving end of multiple bumps from Sheldon Creed in the closing laps of the Dead on Tools 250 on Saturday.
As a result Hill was pushed out of the racing grove and Creed left unable to seal the deal leaving both Richard Childress Racing drivers out of next weekend’s championship race at Phoenix Raceway as Justin Allgaier got by both for the win.
Following the race Creed defended his move saying he did not wipe out his teammate.

Hill felt differently wishing Creed the best at his “next adventure over at Gibbs,” before adding he was looking forward to having Jesse Love as his teammate.

“I can not wait for him to get out of RCR.”
