New drivers at High Point Racing
Tim Huddleston has five cars ready to go in the NASCAR Late Model division at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale. He will also have a sixth car, for Travis Thirkettle, in the Super Late Model division.
He has drivers lined up for three of his Late Model cars. Travis Motley, a driver from Tucson, Ariz., will be in the No. 59 car, Dallas Collodny, from Reno, Nev., will be in the No. 51 car, and Cassie Gannis, the lone woman driver so far at High Point Racing, will be in the No. 56 car. Huddleston, the owner of the team and the reigning Late Model champion at the track, will be in the No. 50 car.
Gannis is also scheduled to race in the Super Late Model race in the Showdown. She will be in the No. 09 car.
High Point Racing is preparing a fifth car for the Late Model division, but does not have a driver for it yet. Huddleston was talking to a potential driver for the car on Friday night. Kendall Lopez and her mother and father were meeting with Huddleston at the track.
