#46 Justin Hill (Pro Circuit Kawasaki):
Once again, Justin Hill is the Most Impressive Rider of the week. Hill has been on fire lately, winning three main events in a row. Regardless of what happens here on out, 2017 is definitely the best season of Hill’s career; he’s finally blooming!
The track in Oakland was BRUTAL (in a good way). It was super soft, which caused gnarly ruts. Most riders were struggling just to get around, but Hill excelled in these conditions. Hill’s fastest lap time was almost a full second faster than anyone else… no one was even close to him, which is super impressive.
On top of this, Hill had such a large lead that he even crashed, and was still able to come out in the lead! Hill’s lead was almost 10 seconds at this point, and he was still able to stretch it back out to over 8 seconds with just 5 laps after the crash.
All in all, Hill is at another level right now. Truthfully, I didn’t expect this type of dominance from him this season. Hill now has the points lead with 4 more rounds left; let’s see if he can hold onto it!
