Over the years NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour team owner David Hill and his family owned Hill Enterprises team have given many young drivers opportunities to shine on the racetrack in a Modified.

That theme will continue Wednesday at Thompson Speedway for the team.

Troy Talman confirmed to RaceDayCT Tuesday that he has finalized a one-race deal to run for Hill Enterprises in the Whelen Modified Tour Budweiser 150 Wednesday at Thompson Speedway.

Talman started the first nine event so the season for Boehler Racing Enterprises in the team’s classic Ole Blue ride, before a wreck in the Call Before You Dig 150 at Stafford brought that team’s efforts to a screeching halt.

It was revealed Monday that the Boehler Racing Enterprises team would not be able to make it to Thompson Wednesday because of issues from a crash Talman was involved in at Stafford.

Talman finalized the deal to run for Hill Enterprises Tuesday morning.

“It’s a one-race deal,” Talman said. “We’re not that far behind in the rookie points so It’s a really good opportunity. They’ve got a new Troyer car this year and I think it has some potential in it.”

Talman, of Oxford, Mass., is currently 16th overall in the standings. He’s ranked fourth in the chase for the Sunoco Rookie Of The Year award and sits just eight points behind leader Chase Dowling in the rookie standings.

In the event before Stafford, Talman had his best career series finish, in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 200 at Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, N.H. on July 25.

He qualified fifth at Stafford on Friday.

“It’s kind of a bummer that we have to sit out [with the BRE Team], but we’re going to regroup there and come back strong later in the year,” Talman said. “It was a very inopportune time I guess [for the issues]. I felt like we were really hitting our stride. Even Friday as well, we qualified in the top-five. I felt like we had a good car and it was only lap 60, there was a long way to go in the race. I felt like we would have had something to fight for a top-five finish that night.”

Talman said, as it stands right now, the BRE team would likely not make the trip to Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway for the Whelen Modified Tour Bush’s Beans 150. He’s unsure what could happen with Westfield, N.C. based Hill Enterprises team.

“Right now it’s one a race deal and we’ll get through Wednesday and see how it goes,” Talman said.
