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.
