Quin Commits To Run Iowa & Kentucky NASCAR Xfinity Series Races With PPM

The 19-year-old Virginia-native had surprising success in his debut at Bristol Motor Speedway, where after only one practice, he raced the “Beatin’ Cancer with Duke” Chevrolet steadily through the field into the top 10 but was relegated to a 15th place finish after a late race restart.
Quin Happy With Second Career NASCAR Xfinity Start at Richmond
RICHMOND, VA (May 1, 2017) – Quin Houff and Precision Performance Motorsports competed in their second career NASCAR Xfinity Series race together on Saturday at Richmond International Raceway. The team needed to qualify for the race on speed and did so in the final minutes of qualifying and parlayed that effort into a 27th place finish at the conclusion of the race distance.
Quin and the PPM team took most of the first practice for the rookie driver to acclimate himself to the .750-mile layout, one of the biggest tracks of his career. By the end of the second practice, the team bolted on new tires for a mock qualifying run which shot them to the sixth spot at the conclusion of practice, a much-needed confidence booster for the young driver.

Quin Impresses In NASCAR Xfinity Series Debut At Bristol
BRISTOL, TN (Apr. 22, 2017) – Bristol Motor Speedway is one of the toughest short tracks on the NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule. For Quin Houff, the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 at Bristol was the perfect place to make his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut.
In the first and only practice session of the weekend, Houff was 31st fastest in the No. 46 beatincancerwithduke.org Chevrolet Camaro for Precision Performance Motorsports.
In qualifying, the 19-year-old driver turned heads. In the first round, Houff placed his Chevrolet on top of the boards for the majority of the session. Eventually, Houff slid down the charts. After being bumped out of the Top 24, he improved his speed enough to make Top 24 and the second round. Houff ended up 21st on the starting grid.
Quin Posts Pair of Top Five Finishes in Return To Racing in Virginia
THORNBURG, VA (Mar. 27, 2017) – Quin Houff made his hometown fans proud by returning to Virginia in the CARS Tour Duels at Dominion on Saturday and bringing home a pair of fourth place finishes. It was Quin’s final super late model race before his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at Bristol Motor Speedway next month.
Houff started the first duel race, a 75-lap contest, in sixth. He was mired in a three-way fight for third during most of the race until a late-race caution set up a restart inside of 20 laps to go. The restart allowed Quin to battle with Christian Eckes and the two made contact just a pair of laps following the restart resulting in Quin losing control briefly before righting the machine and bringing out another yellow. After racing resumed, Quin was able to claw his way back to a fourth place finish.
