Episode 6 - Stan Hover MotorsportsOf all the “field fillers” of the 2004 NASCAR Nextel Cup season, none endured a more difficult season than Andy Hillenburg and Hover Motorsports. But to say they struggled doesn’t mean they were inexperienced. For more than a decade, both driver and team had amassed several impressive accomplishments - particularly in the ARCA Menards Series, where the two first joined forces. Time and again, Hillenburg and Hover crossed paths – particularly on a certain one-mile oval in North Carolina--- SPECIAL THANKS *Bryan Hallman at the BRH Racing Archives for his many photos *Matt Mielke and NASCARMAN History for sharing their photos of Hover’s team ARTICLES *Campbell, Angela. “Andy Hillenburg: The Man behind Bringing NASCAR back to Rockingham Speedway,” Speedway Media, March 8, 2012. https://speedwaymedia.com/2012/03/08/andy-hillenburg-the-man-behind-bringing-nascar-back-to-rockingham-speedway/ *James, Brant. “NASCAR fills up on scrappy teams,” Tampa Bay Times, August 27, 2005. https://www.tampabay.com/archive/2004/03/14/nascar-fills-up-on-scrappy-teams/ *Laurence, Dave. “Underdog of the Week: Tony Ave,” RacingUnderdog.com, August 17, 2004; https://web.archive.org/web/20050529235406/http://www.racingunderdog.com/uotw/040817.htm *Long, Dustin. “Ex-driver buys track at Rockingham,” Greensboro.com, October 2, 2007; https://greensboro.com/sports_professional/auto_racing/ex-driver-buys-track-at-rockingham/article_0de8f7f7-b8b2-56d3-b2ba-a2511abc8d11.html *Newberry, Paul. “ ‘Indiana Andy’ Hillenburg finally in the 500,” May 25, 2000. http://indymotorspeedway.com/v1/00andy.htm *Spencer, Lee.
