QUIN HOUFF AND MMM HAVE UP AND DOWN DAY AT DAYTONA
DAYTONA BEACH, FL (Feb. 12, 2018)— Since Mason Mitchell Motorsports (MMM) entered the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards in 2014, the teams motto has always been “never give up.” The MMM team demonstrated that attitude Saturday at the Daytona International Speedway in the Lucas Oil 200 driven by General Tire as Quin Houff fought for the lead before an incident in turn one ended his day.
Quin Houff had unfinished business at DIS last weekend. Houff led 23 laps in the 2017 version of this race until a late race incident set him back in the final running order. Houff, driver of the No. 98 Beatincancerwithduke.org Chevrolet, qualified in the 11th position for the 80-lap event. Houff moved up four spots to seventh in the opening six laps and was content riding single file with the rest of the leaders. After a great pit-stop by the Mark Setzer led team, Houff returned to the action inside the top-five in the fourth position.
QUIN HOUFF RETURNS TO DAYTONA, LOOKS TO REPEAT AND IMPROVE PERFORMANCE FROM ONE YEAR AGO
MOORESVILLE, NC (Feb. 9, 2018) – Racers often go to Daytona to accomplish a lifelong dream of simply making laps on the famous high banks. A year ago, Quin Houff was that racer, but this year his perspective has changed.
It no longer is enough for Quin to make competitive laps; he wants to win.
In last year’s Lucas Oil 200 Driven By General Tire, Quin worked his way forward through the race and led over a quarter of the event (23 laps) before pitting for fuel during the team’s only planned pit stop of the race. Soon after he rejoined the fight for the win, an accident ahead of him swept Quin and the No. 98 Chevrolet into the melee, ending his chance for victory.
Quin Joins Mason Mitchell Motorsports For Daytona and Three Other ARCA Events in 2018
MOORESVILLE, NC (Jan. 8, 2018) – One year ago, a newcomer to ARCA racing turned the head of every observer during the season opener at Daytona International Speedway. Virginia native Quin Houff came to the World Center of Racing and dominated a large portion of the 200-mile contest which kicks off Speedweeks.
An accident not of his doing wiped out Quin’s chance to win in 2017 and left him yearning for a chance to do it again. This February, he will return to the seat of a Mason Mitchell Motorsports Chevrolet at Daytona for the second consecutive year, attempting to replicate his performance from one year ago where he led over a quarter of the event.

Houff Brings Home Solid Finish at Kansas
Quin Houff and the Precision Performance Motorsports team competed together for their second intermediate start at Kansas Speedway on Saturday afternoon in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. As the weekend progressed, Quin and the team gradually got faster and picked up speed around the tricky 1.5-mile layout west of Kansas City. By qualifying, Quin was able to turn his fastest lap of the weekend, although the effort was only good enough for a 31st starting position.
Once the green flag waved, Quin and the team gradually worked their way forward through the course of the afternoon. Through on-track moves and work in the pits, the team was able to put themselves in a position to compete for a top 20 finish. Although things did not quite fall the way they desired, the entire group improved over 200 laps to rise to 22nd in the final race results, nine positions better than where they started.
