Mixed Results for Austin Hubbard at VMS Lucas Oil Weekend

Delaware driver looking to VMS and Clary’s for upcoming events

Seaford, DE: Austin Hubbard fresh off of a Victory at Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, Delaware. Hubbard battled the final three laps side by side with ten time track Champion Kenny Pettyjohn. With Pettyjohn on the bottom and Hubbard on the top edging Pettyjohn for his first Super Late Model win.



It was with momentum from that victory that The Hubbard Motorsports team carried into this past weekends Lucas Oil Late Model Series event and Victory Lap Late Models at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway. Hubbard was hoping to accomplish two things at VMS. First to make the Lucas Oil race and then have a solid showing. The second one was to try and win his second Victory Lap Late Model feature of the season and close in on points leader Walker Arthur.



In the Lucas Oil event Hubbard would qualify his Pro Powered Pontiac GTO Rocket 14th fastest for the Lucas event. Missing the transferring by one position in his heat Hubbard would have to run the B Main to make the race, a solid 3rd place finish in the B the team would go to work for the main. Hubbard found the track surface different from what he is use to at the Saluda, VA half mile. “I don’t think we were quite right on the set up as we needed to be”, stated Hubbard. “The track was very racy just very dry slick and the experienced traveling teams showed why they are good as they are because they see those conditions a lot more than we do”, he added. Hubbard would finish 19th in the race looked to it as another learning experience in his young career.



In the Victory Lap race Hubbard set fast time during Hot Lap Qualifying earning him 5 points. He started out strong but the race would soon start to take a turn for the worse for the 15 year old driver. “Due to the slickness of the track we tightened up the Limited Late Model but about mid way through the race the track started taking rubber and the car got so tight I just couldn’t turn it”, said Hubbard. If that wasn’t bad enough for the team it became worse as the car developed battery problems draining the cars electrical system.

However there would be a problem for Arthur at the scales as he failed to make weight causing him to be disqualified. “We had a bad night 17th but, with Walker not making weight we gained points on the leader. Instead of trailing Walker by 25 points I think I’m only about 15 behind Tom Cohick (who won Saturday at VMS) so despite the bad race for us we gained. We’re just now trailing a different driver.



This coming weekend Hubbard will be at Virginia Motor Speedway on Friday the 29th for a regular event and then will take the Super Late Model to Clary’s Speedway in Brinkleyville, NC for a 2,000 to win race. It will mark his first ever trip to the North Carolina track.



Austin would like to thank all of his Sponsors and Supporters. Hab Nab Trucking, Salisbury Door & Hardware, Trinity Transport, Duke’s Lumber, The Pit, Bill’s Welding and The Joie of Seating. Hubbard’s number 11 Super Late is a Rocket Chassis with a Pro Power engine, On American Racers with Geneses Shocks. The Late Model is also a Rocket with power from a CAMS Racing Engines with Geneses Shocks.
