Thurlwell Continues HP Success at PDRA Events, Captures
Tulsa Pro Jr. Dragster Victory Under the Lights
HP Racers have had a strangle hold on the
PDRA Pro Jr. Dragster class in 2014. That trend continued at
the recently completely Under the Lights event held at Tulsa
PDRA standout Jake Thurlwell was the latest
to capture a victory with his
HP 7.90 Lite Package. After
opening the event by qualifying #11 in the ultra competitive
field, Jake fought his way through an extremely tough field
of racers to earn yet another victory. At 4 cars it was an
all Huddleston Performance affair, Jake took care of
teammate Emilee Novak for his berth in the finals. The
finals saw a great battle, Jake was second off the line by a
slight margin with his .056 to an .050. However, he had the
hotrod to drive around on the big end as his 7.912 took the
stripe over a 7.919.
Congratulations to Jake and his entire team
on a great outing!

All Huddleston Performance Final Round
Jarrod Kissinger and his team have been a
handful for racers in the Northeast ever since joining the
Huddleston Performance family. This year they brought their
tough skill and awesome race car to Bristol looking to do
some serious damage in the 12 Year Old Age Group.
At the conclusion of Saturday's Eastern
Conference Finals, damage is exactly what they'd done. In
the finals Jarrod brought his
HP 8.90 Sniper Jr. Package
powered hotrod to the starting line to face off with good
friend and fellow
HP 8.90 Sniper Jr. racer
Ben Spotts. Both drivers had been good on both ends of the
track all day and had outstanding racecars. However, on this
weekend Jarrod would not be denied the Wally. When the tree
dropped he took the starting line advantage and never looked
back as he led the entire way to capture the Bristol win
We want to send a huge congratulations to
both Jarrod and his team, and also Ben and his team on an
outstanding day of racing! We're proud to have both of your
representing our HP 8.90 Sniper Jr. Packages at the biggest
race of them all. Great job guys!
