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.
“It was a solid day at the track for me and the team,” Quin said after the race. “You can’t complain when you learn a lot, complete every lap, and finish better than you started, which is exactly what we did. The biggest thing was that we beat the weather and could get home in time to see my mother speak at church on Sunday morning. What a great weekend, and we couldn’t have done it without Precision Performance Motorsports.”
Quin’s next NASCAR Xfinity Series event has yet to be finalized, but he plans to continue his development within the second most popular form of motorsports in North America through 2017 and 2018.
