Congratulations to Cade and his family on yet another incredible feat. Not only grabbing your 5th National Championship, but officially becoming the best to ever sit in a Jr. Dragster! Huddleston Performance is proud to have played a part in all 5 of your Championships!

Huddleston Performance Lowmad Debuts AJPE 5300 Combo, Finds Winner's Circle at Memphis Super Chevy Show


The Huddleston Family came into their opening race of the season with more questions than answers, entering the Memphis Super Chevy Show with a brand new AJPE 5300 engine between the historic wagon's framerails. As the weekend went on, the answers became more clear until they found themselves sitting in the Winner's Circle on the new combinations maiden trip into competition!


The weekend began promising as Thomas Huddleston put the Lowmad in the #2 qualifying spot with a nice 3.78 run early in qualifying. A conservative approach to the new package would prove to be the key on Sunday. High winds made things difficult for teams, but the Lowmad marched straight down broadway each run to find itself in the final round. The finals saw the Huddleston Team come up against Tim Segars and his Batman Team. It would be over early as Segars left the red light glowing, helping to put the Lowmad in the Winner's Circle for the first time with the Huddleston Team.


Lowmad Driver Thomas Huddleston couldn't have been more excited for the new combos performance and his first Pro Modified victory, "What a great weekend! We came into this deal with realistic expectations, but hopes we could make some noise with this new engine program. To qualify at the top of the pack and bring home the race win in our first outing is unbelievable. I'm excited to get more data on this combination, we have a lot of horsepower we just have to be smart enough to use it. The rest of 2016 should be fun as we figure out this 5300 combination."


The Lowmad Team would like to thank all of their 2016 Marketing Partners: Huddleston Performance, Alan Johnson Performance Engineering, PTC Converters, Butler Performance, OverKill Motorsports, Hoosier Tires, and DragCoverage.com.

Huddleston Performance Becomes Presenting Sponsor of NHRA Western Conference Finals and Title Sponsor of WCF Fun Races

Huddleston Performance has spent many years helping to grow The Week at Thunder Valley held at Bristol Dragway. Seeing the Huddleston Performance Junior Nationals as well as the Huddleston Performance Fun Races nearly double in car count, the team at Huddleston Performance now expands their focus to help the Western Conference Finals at Tulsa Raceway Park attempt to reach that same level of competition.

The new partnership between Huddleston Performance and Tulsa Raceway Park  sees a wide range of efforts being put forth during the Western Conference Finals. To open the week racers will be treated to 3 days of heavy racing action where Huddleston Performance will be the Title Sponsor. These days will allow racers to enjoy competing while preparing themselves for the ultimate prize, the Western Conference Finals.

In addition to the Title Sponsorship of the Huddleston Performance Fun Races, the HP Team also joins forces with Tulsa Raceway Park to become the Presenting Sponsor of the Western Conference Finals. One of the most prestigious races in all of Jr. Dragster racing, the Western Conference Finals gives racers an opportunity to compete on a national level. The combination of Huddleston Performance, Tulsa Raceway Park, and the NHRA Western Conference Finals looks to grow the event to rival its East Coast counterpart over the coming years.

Huddleston Performance owner Bo Huddleston is excited with the endless possibilities of the new partnership, “We couldn’t be happier joining with the team at Tulsa Raceway Park. We’ve had the opportunity to get to know them over the past couple of seasons, and they are a group who has the best interest of the sport in mind at their facility. Bringing a big time Jr. Event out west that will mirror our Week at Thunder Valley is something we have wanted to do for a long time. When the WCF’s moved to Tulsa it was a natural fit for all of us to work together to help this thing grow significantly. We are looking forward to heading west in June, and look forward to meeting a lot of new racers while we’re there!”

Tulsa Raceway Park general manager Don Ellison equaled the Huddleston Performance excitement on the new partnership, “Tulsa Raceway Park is very excited to host the Western Conference Finals, bringing racers from across the United States and Canada to compete for the conference championship. In addition to the very best Jr. Racers, we are excited to be partnering with the very best Sponsors in the industry. Having Huddleston Performance come onboard to become the Title Sponsor for the three days of Fun Races and Presenting Sponsor of the Western Conference Finals is a great addition for us!”

The Huddleston Performance Team will be in full force for the event. They will have a full display with Turn-Key Cars, Engine Packages, Clutches, and all the Jr. Dragster parts a person could need. Mark your calendars for June 20-25, 2016 as one of the biggest Jr. Dragster events in the country invades Tulsa Raceway Park.

Butler Performance Looks to Expand, Teams with Lowmad PX Entry for 2016 Season

Butler Performance has long since been one of the top sources for high horsepower Pontiac and now LS combinations. Kings of the street, as proven by Street Outlaw Star “Big Chief”, the Butler Performance team is looking to expand into the Pro Modified parts world in 2016. To tap this market they have joined forces with the Huddleston Performance Pro Extreme entry known as the “Lowmad”.

The new partnership will see Butler Performance providing parts for the new AJPE 5.300 Hemi’s going into the infamous wagon. It will also see them expanding their parts line up to supply many of the replacement parts within today’s Pro Modified engines.

Lowmad Driver Thomas Huddleston is excited to help bring the Butler Performance Team into the Pro Modified ranks, “We’re very pleased to announce our partnership with David and the guys at Butler Performance. We’ve known them a number of years through our Jr. Dragster ties, and have been discussing a partnership on the Lowmad for a few months now. Seeing their business grow to a point where we can hopefully help them from a marketing standpoint is exciting for all of us involved.”

For full details on Butler Performance and their go fast products, visit them at www.ButlerPerformance.com and www.Butler-LS.com .


AJPE Joins Huddleston Performance Lowmad, 5.300 Hemi To Boost Historic Wagon

The Lowmad Team spent the 2015 racing season learning the ropes of their new Pro Extreme entry. As the season came to an end, it was time for the Huddleston Family to make the next step in the infamous wagon’s career. Many hours of research led them to the team at Alan Johnson Performance Engineering for their next challenge.

After months of development, the new partnership will see a pair of AJPE 5.300 Hemi’s coming into the Lowmad’s stable for the 2016 season. The new engines are currently being finished for fitment to the 55’ Chevy Wagon, and both AJPE and the Huddleston Family are looking forward to the results from these powerful pieces.

Lowmad Driver and Huddleston Performance head engine builder Thomas Huddleston is thrilled with the new partnership, “We couldn’t ask for better people to work with on our Pro Extreme Program. We were looking to get outside the normal in 2016, and after some conversations with the guys at AJPE it became clear they were the right people for us. I’m excited to see what kind of numbers we can put up with this new combo. We will have quite a bit more horsepower than last season, and I think the results will show that as we progress in 2016.”

AJPE is just as eager to welcome Bo, Tammy, and Thomas Huddleston to their 5.300 Hemi Program in 2016. Owner Alan Johnson had this to say about the upcoming partnership, “Up until recently, Outlaw Pro-Modified did not have a minimum weight in place which made our 5.300 Hemi program unappealing to anyone considering an engine of this size. With changes the Huddleston’s have put in place to the “LOWMAD” along with several engine upgrades from the AJPE design team, we believe this will be a great fit for both AJPE and Huddleston Performance during the 2016 race season.”

The first of two 5.300 Hemi’s is scheduled for delivery by mid-January, and will hit the race track shortly after.

Shelby has consistently been a top qualifier, and gone a lot of rounds with her Quick 16 ride in 2015. This weekend they were able to put together the entire package to grab the race win.

Benjamin and his team went from an HP 8.90 Sniper Jr. Package to a new HP 7.90 Lite Package to start their 2015 season. The learning curve was minimal in their conversion and Benjamin jumped straight to the top of the 7.90 class early this season.

Mitchell Seymore Beats Out Mother Nature to Earn PDRA Memphis Drags Pro Jr. Dragster Title

Mitchell Seymore has proven time and time again that he is one of the toughest 7.90 Index Racers around with his HP 7.90 Sniper Package. This weekend at Memphis International Raceway he continued to prove his skill sets by marching through some of the toughest 7.90 Index competitors around.

PDRA Pro Jr. Dragster fields are always the tightest around. That is why Mitchell wasn't worried in the least entering eliminations from the #15 qualifying position. Though qualified low, he went a nice 7.936 to earn a spot on race day. He would use a string of great runs to find himself in the Winner's Circle. In the finals Mitchell used a big holeshot to grab the win, his .042 light and a pedaling 7.950 would be more than enough to grab yet another PDRA victory for him and his team!

Congratulations to Mitchell and his team on a great weekend winning the PDRA Huddleston Performance Pro Jr. Dragster class!

This past weekend Andrew proved how tough he can be once more by grabbing the ultra competitive win in the Midwest Series Sportsman class. A slew of cars made for a long evening of racing, but Andrew was able to stay focused and drive the wheels off his hotrod on the way to the win. Near midnight on Sunday evening, Andrew rolled to the Winner's Circle to collect his hardware and a win under his belt at Indy!

Congratulations to Andrew and the entire Green Family on a great victory!

After racking up another Runner-Up finish on Saturday in the 11.90 Index, Bobby came out focused on the final round win Sunday.

Cade Poe Makes History, Becomes First 3 Time Conference Finals Champion with HP 7.90 Lite Package

For those of you who have visited our website and read the write-ups, you are well aware of Cade Poe and his ability to win any race he enters. After a season which has seen him go from 8.90 to 7.90 seamlessly, collecting wins all along the way, he has now topped that by collecting yet another Western Conference Championship.

In his 8.90 days, Cade dominated the West Coast, winning multiple Championships and 2 Western Conference Finals Championships with his HP 8.90 Sniper Jr. Package. His first months of 7.90 competition with his HP 7.90 Lite Package didn't look much different as he won a number of races in California before heading into his first WCF with his new combo. Cade would begin marching through the rounds as we have seen from him for years now, and this time he would end up in the Winner's Circle again and the history books forever! Cade mowed through a tough 13 Year Old Age Group to not only grab his third WCF Championship, but also a piece of history as the only 3 time Conference Finals Champion in Jr. Dragster history. Regardless of 8.90 or 7.90, Cade has cemented himself as one of the best to ever sit in a Jr.

We want to congratulate Cade and the Poe Racing Team on one of the best accomplishments seen in the Jr. World. Huddleston Performance is proud to have been by your side through all of your Championship runs!

After spending the entire week at Bristol Dragway, competing in every event they could enter, Brady and his team came into Saturday's eliminations ready to dominate in the mountains.

Mitchell Seymore Dominates Southern Survival Event, Earns Two Wally's in One Weekend

Mitchell Seymore has been racking up the round wins in 2015, but none of his race weekend's quite compare to the one he had this past weekend at Music City Raceway in Nashville, TN.

Mitchell came into the weekend with his sights set on capturing a Wally before the weekend was over with his HP 7.90 Heavy Package. He would well exceed those expectations by not only winning Saturday's Wally, but coming back and taking home Sunday's Wally as well! Mitchell and his racecar were on a string all weekend, both worked great together to beat out all of the competition that came their way!

We'd like to congratulate Mitchell and the Seymore Family on an outstanding weekend at the racetrack!

Brady Fomby and his team joined Montgomery Raceway Park last weekend for one of the hottest events of 2015 so far! At the end of the weekend the Fomby Family was the only one left standing, and collected the Southern Outlaw Tour race win!

Brady came into the weekend having not raced a ton throughout the course of the 2015 season in his HP 8.90 Assassin Turn-Key car. Driving rust would not be an issue for the young Alabama racer though, as he marched right through the tough field of racers. Brady was all over the tree, and his crew chief had the car on a rail in the hot summer heat to beat out their opponents!

We'd like to congratulate Brady on his win, and beating the extreme Alabama heat!

HP $5K Shootout Returns To Bristol Dragway Bigger and Better in 2015

The Huddleston Performance $5K Shootout was one of the highlights of the 2014 Week at Thunder Valley held each year at Bristol Dragway. As the primary sponsor of most of the week, Huddleston Performance wanted to bring something new and exciting to the event with their $5K Shootout.

Paying a guaranteed $5,000 to the Winner, last year's shootout was a huge success. Selling out the 32 car field in less than 10 minutes, the HP Shootout became one of the most fascinating races during the Week at Thunder Valley. This year's HP Shootout will be even more grand than last year's as the field and purses expand in size!

The 2015 HP $5K Shootout will see the field expanded to a 64 car field. That expansion also allows for an increase in the purse itself. The Winner of the 2015 HP $5K Shootout will still take home $5,000 to win, but the purse will carry back further into the rounds this year. The Runner-Up will collect $2,000 and the Semi Finalists will grab a cool $1,000 a piece for their effort!

Be sure to mark your calendars for the opening of the pre-registration again this year. You will be able to pre-enter June 24th at 10 a.m. Don't miss out on one of the biggest paydays of the season, the field sold out in less than 10 minutes last season! For pre-registration you can go to, www.BristolDragway.com and click on the Huddleston Performance Jr. Nationals event under the Bristol Schedule. Save this page so you can reference it quickly on June 24th!

The race itself will take place Monday, July 20th at 5 p.m. during the Week at Thunder Valley. It will begin at the conclusion of the Time Trial day currently on the schedule, and no time trials will be given for the $5K Shootout. So if you are one of the lucky 64 to get entered, be sure to jump in the Test-N-Tune on Monday to ensure you get some hits at the tree before your chance at $5,000!

The Kernwein Team began their 2015 season at the opening Midwest Jr. Series event last weekend. There they grabbed Runner-Up honors in their very first outing of the year. That wouldn't be enough for young Bobby though, his team came into Byron Raceway this past weekend looking for the victory. That is exactly what they'd find as both Bobby and crew chief Bob Kernwein did everything right to park their HP Assassin hotrod in the Winner's Circle!

Congratulations to Bobby on a great start to his 2015 season, keep up the great work!


Allyson Downs Finds Winner Circle Early in 2015 with HP 8.90 Sniper Jr. Package

Allyson Downs and her team have been diehard HP Racers from the beginning of their Jr. Career. After a great 11.90 career with her HP 11.90 Pea-Shooter Package, Allyson made the switch to an HP 8.90 Sniper Jr. combo. The 2014 season wasn't exactly what they'd hoped for, but in 2015 Allyson has come out swinging by already grabbing a victory at Summit Motorsports Park.

This past weekend Allyson was able to use great reaction times, great driving, and a consistent hotrod to grab the early season win. After knocking the tree over in time trials with staller .000 and .001 reaction times, Allyson settled into a groove for the remainder of the race. Never moving their dial in from 8.90, the Downs Family worked through an always tough field at Summit Motorsports Park to capture the race win!

Ashton Frazier Continues Dominance of Southwest, Collects 2 Race Wins and 13 Straight Round Wins

 

 

Ashton Frazier has been on fire since taking delivery of his HP Assassin 7.90 Lite Turn-Key Car. A number of race wins made his 2014 season a great one, and he's already off to a strong start in 2015. This weekend Ashton grabbed the victory not only in his Age Group, but also in the Gambler's Race!

 

Ashton started the weekend strong in his Age Group by grabbing the race win. He put together a nearly unbeatable package in the finals with a nice .021 light and ran a dead on 7.903 on his 7.90 dial. That wouldn't be good enough for him though, he backed that up by taking home the win in the Gambler's Race that same day. He put together an even better package in that final with an amazing .011 light and dead on 7.902 for the victory! Ashton took home an astounding 13 straight round wins to grab 2 wins and go undefeated for the weekend.

 

Dad, Crew Chief, and Car Owner Niles Frazier had this to say of their HP Assassin Turn-Key Car, "The Assassin is the best car on the planet. We went 13 rounds in a row without a loss. Car did amazing and got our first win (or wins) of the 2015 season. Thank you guys for building an awesome machine!"

 

We want to congratulate Ashton on a great weekend of racing, and thank them for being such a great representative of Huddleston Performance!

Benjamin Spotts didn't take long to find the Winner's Circle with his brand new HP 7.90 Sniper Lite Package. In fact, he marched right through the first field that he entered in 7.90 action. Great driving and a deadly consistent ride helped Benjamin not only get his first win of 2015 but also his first in 7.90 competition!

Benjamin and his crew chief Marlin Spotts came into the weekend with no test data on their new HP 7.90 Sniper Lite Package. That wouldn't be an issue for the proven 8.90 competitor though, as he put together a string of great packages to take home the win in his first outing!

We would like to say a big congratulations to Benjamin on the perfect start to his 7.90 career!


Shinski Family Puts New Hardware in Winner Circle First Weekend Out at I-29 Dragway

The Shinski Family has been Team HP for many years now. For the past few seasons you have read about big brother Adam Shinski doing all the winning with his HP 8.90 Sniper Jr. Package. Now there is a second Shinski in the mix as little brother Simon Shinski has joined the 11.90 ranks, and it appears as though the race wins will be doubling with Simon in the seat!

Simon started the weekend off strong with his brand new HP 11.90 Pea-Shooter Package. His first run of 11.889, on a new combo with no testing, set the tone for the weekend in the 8&9 Year Old Division. He marched his way through the competition and found himself in the Winner's Circle for the first time in 2015. His great driving and the tuning of his father Charles Shinski, helped put their HP 11.90 Pea-Shooter Package out front in its debut!

Not to be out done, older brother Adam Shinski parked himself beside his brother in the Winner's Circle with his new HP 7.90 Sniper Lite Package. In the same fashion, Adam didn't get any test time before the season began. He found his groove early on in the seat, and his crew chief dialed the car in expertly in a short amount of time to grab the win!

We want to congratulate the entire Shinski Family on not only grabbing a pair of wins, but doing so in their first weekend on with new combos!

Both Kaden and Colby came to Middle Tennessee Dragway looking to collect more hardware with their HP 8.90 Sniper Jr. combos. Not only would each of them collect more hardware, but they wouldn't leave much for the rest of the competitions as they took both race wins this past Saturday night!

Mitchell Seymore Shines Bright in Alabama Sun, Takes Montgomery Raceway Park Super 7 Victory

Mitchell Seymore and his team have won a lot of races over the years with their HP 7.90 Heavy combo. After going rounds at the SEJRA opening event at Montgomery Raceway Park a few weeks ago, Mitchell was primed and ready to add another race win to his tally.

In the semi's Mitchell brought his HP powered ride to the starting line against Brady Fomby and his HP 8.90 Turn-Key Assassin machine. Mitchell was nearly perfect with a stellar .004 reaction time to Brady's nice .042. That would prove to be enough as both driver's were pedaling at the finish line, but Mitchell's 8.13 on his 8.07 got the win and the place in the finals. The finals would be over before it really got started. Mitchell put up another very nice light with an .025, but his opponent would leave the red light glowing giving the young Seymore the victory!

Congratulations to Mitchell and the Seymore team on a very nice victory!

Cade Poe Continues Dominant Ways in 7.90 Debut, Takes SCEDA Event Victory

Cade Poe was arguably one of the most dominant 8.90 Racers the Jr. sport has ever seen. After multiple wins, championships, and back to back Western Conference Finals victories with his HP 8.90 Sniper Jr. Package, Cade opened his 7.90 career this past weekend in Southern California. To very few people's surprise, the younger Poe brother found himself in the Winner's Circle in his first outing with his HP 7.90 Lite Package.

The weekend wasn't an easy one for the Poe Racing Team as issues with the facility made the event become a 2 day race. In normal circumstances this would be hard enough, but on top of that Cade's crew chief and father, John Poe had to work the following day and would not be in attendance for the conclusion of the race. Luckily some great friends stepped in for the Poe's to carry the extra weight and Cade continued his march to the Winner's Circle on Sunday. In the finals Cade had a very nice package for the win with an .030 light and a 7.891 on his 7.90 dial for the victory!

We want to congratulate Cade and the entire Poe Team on a great win, and the perfect start to a 7.90 career!


Michael Ruark Captures National Trails Quick 16 Championship in First Season with HP Quick 16 Combo

Michael Ruark and his family have been standout racers in the Midwest portion of the country for a few seasons now. Once Michael was old enough to go Quick 16 racing, the Ruark Family knew the HP Quick 16 combo was the way they wanted to go. When the dust settled from a long season that decision paid off big time!

Michael started off his 2014 campaign with a bang by grabbing the #1 qualifier spot in the National Trails Quick 16 class. He followed that up with 2 wins throughout the season, and a slew of #1 qualifying spots during the year. That front running helped him to land the 2014 National Trails Quick 16 Championship in his first season competing in the class!

We want to congratulate Michael and the Ruark Team on an outstanding season!


 

Huddleston Performance Increases PDRA Presence with Purchase of Infamous "Lowmad"



(12-11-14) PITTSBORO, NC - Several companies took the leap with the Professional Drag Racers Association as they stepped out for their debut in 2014. One of those companies was Huddleston Performance, who sponsored both the Pro and Top Junior Dragster categories. Huddleston Performance is one of the front running companies for Junior Dragster racing, providing turn-key cars, engines, clutches and a full line of components for racers all over the world. Now Huddleston Performance mastermind, Bo Huddleston, and his team are ready to increase their PDRA involvement by debuting a new Pro Boost team and increasing their sponsorship involvement.

Bo’s son Thomas, a former junior driver himself, will pilot the Pro Boost car, which will be strikingly familiar to professional eighth mile followers. A few short days ago, the Huddleston family purchased the famous “Lowmad,” a 1955 Chevrolet Nomad machine, previously campaigned by David Elsberry’s team.

Thomas Huddleston, now 28, was a proficient Junior Dragster driver in his day, racking up quite a list of awards, race wins and championships. After his Junior Dragster days, Thomas focused on schooling, earning his college degree before coming back to Huddleston Performance where he now works as their main engine builder. Prior to this new chapter, Thomas piloted a number of bracket dragsters and spent time behind the wheel of a nitrous-breathing Outlaw 10.5 ride.

“We started off looking for a car to compete with in the PDRA,” Bo began, explaining how the Pro Boost team came to be. “We were thinking one of the sportsman classes, but the appeal of those classes wasn’t there for us personally The PDRA is all about heads up racing, and we’ve spent many years in different heads up arenas. So then we started thinking that if we are going to heads up race we want to do it with something unique. That led us down the road that ended with a meeting with Mr. David Elsberry, new owner of Montgomery Raceway Park.”

Huddleston continued, “We originally went down to look at a pair of cars Mr. Elsberry had for sale. The first being a ‘63 Corvette he had and the second being the original Lowmad. After some discussion we had pretty well settled on the ‘63 ‘vette, even though in our eyes it lacked the ‘curb appeal’ of the older Lowmad. That was when Mr. Elsberry pulled back the cover on the newer Lowmad we’ve all seen compete in Pro Extreme. After some discussion about it, he was kind enough to offer her up to us as the next ‘Caretakers’ in its storied history. As a family we knew immediately that this wasn’t an opportunity we could pass up. We certainly want to take the chance to thank Mr. Elsberry for giving us the opportunity to carry on the Lowmad for years to come.”

Huddleston bought the car nearly turn-key and had a mostly ready made Pro Boost operation within a few hours. “I literally thought I was going to buy a rolling car and have to go get a motor and transmission and all the other stuff. By the end of it, I had purchased the majority of the car. We went from Sunday morning not having the main piece needed to run a race team to Sunday evening having the majority of what we needed in one purchase. And for that to happen three days before the PRI starts - well, some of us work well under pressure, so here we are.”

On the business side of things, Huddleston Performance will increase their sponsorship level and maintain a greater presence at PDRA events.

“We’ve been a supporter of various series and races for a long time,” Huddleston explained. “While we always want to be a major sponsor of in the Junior world, we really wanted to branch out in a way that didn’t feel like we were ‘preaching to the choir’ so to speak. We still want to support those races, but we want to hit the untapped markets as well. With the PDRA’s ticket model, it draws a person that maybe can’t purchase a new Pro Mod, but very well may be interested in a Junior Dragster for their young driver. It seemed like it would be a good fit for us. And it turns out that’s correct. We get asked questions that only those who haven’t been around the sport a lot would ask. The truth is you want those questions to be asked because that tells you the guy you’re talking to is new, and we just get inundated with that when we go to PDRA events. So it’s been a really good fit for us. One thing I’ve got to say is that we’ve really been welcomed by the PDRA bunch. I feel like we’re a very small fish in a very big pond and nobody treats us that way. They’ve put a good organization together. This one is the real deal.

“For 2015 we have upped our sponsor level. We’re now sponsoring one of the TV spots next season. I can speak for everyone in the shop when I say we’re excited about this opportunity to grow our exposure through the PDRA. To be able to take Junior Drag Racing to a place it has never been before is thrilling for all of us at Huddleston Performance.

“I feel like it’s a great connection,” Bo added. “Many of the junior racers we come in contact with hope to one day compete in a professional class with the PDRA. They have the dream of growing up to be a Pro Mod driver. That’s a big part of the draw for starting out with the PDRA for them. So to now have a former junior driver in Thomas living the dream, so to speak, is pretty cool.”

The Huddleston family plan on testing the Lowmad in February in preparation for the PDRA season opener at Texas Motorplex March 20-21.

Mia Schultz and Preston Tanner Earn SEJRA Points Championships in 2014

Preston Tanner and Mia Schultz have both drove the wheels off their HP Assassin Turn-Key Cars in 2014. Both have won multiple races in the SEJRA, PDRA, Midwest Series, and IHRA Divisional. This weekend they each finished their SEJRA Season strong by capturing a Championship in their Age Group!

Mia started the weekend off right by capturing the 10-12 Year Old Championship. A win to start the season at US 43 Dragway sent her season in the right direction from the beginning. Capturing round wins at both Music City and Bristol all but sealed the deal coming into the SEJRA Memphis event. By entering the race, Mia made it nearly impossible for second place racer Lexi Tanner to catch her. In addition to Mia, we'd also like to congratulate second place finisher Lexi Tanner and third place Brady Fomby. Both Racers also compete in our HP 8.90 Assassin Turn-Key Cars!

Preston Tanner followed Mia's lead by capturing the 13&Up Age Group Championship later that same day. A points race which saw a lot of good racers aiming for the top spot, Preston was able to come out victorious at the conclusion of the Memphis Race. Like Mia, he opened his season with a win at the SEJRA US 43 Dragway event and never looked back. Round wins at the remaining races were enough to keep him out in front of his competition for the championship!

We'd like to congratulate both Preston and Mia for representing the HP Brand so well in their HP Assassin Turn-Key Cars this season! We look forward to your continued success in 2015!


HP Racers Capture Wins at Final SEJRA Points Race at Memphis International Raceway

We want to send a big congratulations out to our HP Racers who carried the banner strong at the final points race of 2014 for the South-East Junior Racing Association. Weather conditions were tricky all weekend, but both Preston Tanner and Brody Quick were able to march their HP Combos to the Winner's Circle to highlight the weekend.

Brody started things off right in the 13&Up Age Group on Sunday. He used a string of nice lights and spot on runs to find his way to the Winner's Circle. In the finals he would bring his HP 7.90 Lite Package to the line against Miles Martin and his 2013 HP 7.90 Lite Assassin Turn-Key Car. Brody would get the better of Miles on both ends of the racetrack to grab the race win!

Preston Tanner followed up Brody's performance shortly after by claiming the $1,000 All-Run victory in his 2013 HP 7.90 Lite Assassin Turn-Key Car. Preston was able to use a nice starting line advantage, and a nice 7.920 on his 7.90 dial to earn the victory. That victory nearly grabbed Preston the season long points championship in the All-Run category, but he had to settle for second by a mere 12 points.

We want to congratulate both Racers on a great weekend of action, and a great season for all our HP Racers!

Her hotrod was just as good as she ran 4 dead on 7.90 passes during eliminations to capture the win. In the finals she met up with fellow HP Racer Emilee Novak in her HP Turn-Key Assassin 7.90 machine. It would be over on the starting line as Emilee went red, but Meredith was on point again with another 7.905 on her 7.90 dial!

Crew Chief Eric Miller had this to say of his driver and HP Combo, "I'm so proud of what she has done this year and hope the good mojo continues next year. I'm also happy that I chose Huddleston Performance for our paackage. Much of the credit has to go to you guys for doing your homework and supplying a winning combination."
