Alexcis Schultz Continues Great 2014 Season, Takes Iron
Man Classic at Sumerduck Dragway
Alexcis Schultz has had a great 2014 season
since taking delivery of her
2014 HP Assassin Turn-Key Car.
A number of wins throughout the East Coast, and a number of
#1 qualifiers at the PDRA, have made her a threat at any
event she attends.
This past weekend her team made the
relatively short drive to Sumerduck Dragway for their Iron
Man Classic. After a long day which saw Alexcis having to be
victorious in 6 rounds, she found herself in the Winner's
Circle yet again. This time she had earned one of the most
prestigious trophies in drag racing, the IHRA Iron Man.
We'd like to congratulate Alexcis and her
team on an outstanding year of racing!
Latest Added FAQ: Does Huddleston Performance Work on Other
Brands of Engine?
In our continued efforts to grow the
section of the website, and make it the most thorough
learning center in Jr. Racing, we are often presented with
The short answer to this question is: Yes,
Huddleston Performance does work on nearly all other brands
However, like with most things, there is a
more detailed answer to this question which will help you to
know what to expect at Huddleston Performance. While we do
freshen most other brands, there are some out there which
simply are difficult to freshen. Parts availability, ease of
doing business, and overall layout of the engine make a very
small amount of engines something which Huddleston
Performance does not do work on. This applies to a very
small number of Jr. Engines out there today so don't
hesitate to call and ask about your specific combination.
Also, we want our customers to know what
they are getting up front. Here at Huddleston Performance we
put the best into every engine that comes through the door.
While that may not be the same parts in every layout of
engine, we do our homework on your specific combination to
ensure that you get the most life out of your parts. In
short, if we wouldn't race it then we won't put it back into
your motor, things such as:
1. We open your motor to see it has an
8 year old 7/8" crank with visible signs of stress.
2. Something has broke in your motor,
while the camshaft runs true, it has clearly been hit in the
3. Titanium Valves which have been run
with no lash caps have beat the tips off of them.
These are just a few examples of things
which Huddleston Performance sees in other brands of engine
and will not put back out the door to you the racer. While
it may seem like a savings at the time of freshening, this
type of work is much more costly to you in the long run.
However, as with all motors that come into the Huddleston
Performance doors, we will call you before any work has
begun to discuss the quote on your motor and what parts are

Schultz and Preston Tanner Earn SEJRA Points Championships
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
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
Racers Capture Wins at Final SEJRA Points Race at Memphis
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
Meredith Miller Ends Season Strong, Collects Midwest
Series $1,000 All-Run Win at Final Event
Meredith Miller and her
HP 7.90 Lite Package were
on a tear at the season finale of the Midwest Series. She
used a string of great lights, and a very consistent car
thanks to crew chief Eric Miller, to collect the $1,000 and
Throughout the race Meredith was all over
the tree, cutting a .008, .015, and .011 light on her way to
victory. 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."
We want to congratulate Meredith on a great
season, and wish her continued luck in 2015!
Miles Martin Caps off Championship Season with Wally Win
at Beacon Dragway
Miles Martin has been on a tear in 2014 with
HP 7.90 Lite Assassin Turn-Key Car.
This past weekend he added yet another trophy to his
collection, this time earning the Wally at Beacon Dragway!
As has become normal for him, Miles marched
through the Beacon crowd without a single bump in the road.
This time Miles was able to do it at the Beacon Dragway Jr.
Challenge event Saturday night. A string of great lights and
a consistent ride helped park him in the Winner Circle yet
again in 2014.
We'd like to congratulate Miles and the
entire Martin team on a great season, and the latest Wally
addition to their racing family!
Isaac Evans Wins PDRA Pro Jr.
Dragster Championship in Fine Fashion, Takes PDRA World
Finals Victory Along with Championship
Isaac Evans has been leading the charge for
Huddleston Performance for much of the season in the PDRA.
His driving, along with great tuning from father Brian
Evans, have landed them as the 2014 PDRA Pro Jr. Dragster
World Champion in the serie's inaugural season! Isaac drove
his way to the championship using one of our latest
2014 HP 7.90 Lite Assassin Turn-Key
Coming into the final event it was a 3 horse
race. Isaac came in leading the points, while Preston Tanner
and Alexcis Schultz were trying to chase him down. (All 3
HP 7.90 Lite Turn-Key Racecars!!)
In a weekend that saw a 2 day event turn into a 6 day
marathon, Isaac and Brian Evans kept their focus to qualify
and race well throughout the event. Isaac wouldn't be
denied, as he not only did what he needed to for the
Championship, but also marched his way right to the PDRA
World Finals event victory!
We'd like to congratulate Isaac on an
outstanding season of racing. We'd also like to extend a
congratulations to Preston Tanner and Alexcis Schultz on
their second and third place finishes in PDRA Pro Jr.
Dragster as well as Lexi Tanner for her Runner-Up finish in
the PDRA Top Jr. Dragster class! All of these racers were
