THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2001 -- Adding to the expanding network of Star Formula Mazda dealers across the country, Huffaker Engineering (www.huffakerengineering.com) will immediately begin servicing Formula Mazda owners in the Northern California area out of its Sears Point Raceway-located shop. With a racing history dating back more than 40 years, Huffaker Engineering is a welcome addition to the Star Formula Mazda team. "We're glad to become involved with the Formula Mazda program," said Joe Huffaker, whose father, Joe Sr., began the Huffaker road racing dynasty building sports and formula cars in the late 1950's. "Our plan is to immediately start selling parts and cars, then start servicing cars, and maybe build up some driving customers as well. We'll take this one step at a time and do it right." Huffaker Engineering is a diverse shop that boasts a successful Trans-Am program, vintage racing preparation, engine and chassis development, as well as Huffaker's own SCCA national championship-winning GT5 and club racing efforts. Future expansion at Huffaker Engineering includes moving into new shop space at Sears Point that is slated to be completed in about a year, according to Huffaker. "We'd been looking for someone in that area to service all our customers in the San Francisco Region," said Star Race Cars president Gary Rodrigues. "It's a huge benefit to have Huffaker Engineering as part of our dealer program." The Star Formula Mazda network consists of 11 dealers including Star Race Cars in Van Nuys, Calif.; Aubeta Technology Corp., in Seattle, Wash.; Flat Out Racing, in Woodland, Wash.; Formula Cars East, in Bloomingdale, Ga.; Pro-One Motorsports, in Naperville, Ill.; Racers Edge Motorsports, in Augusta, N.J.; Texas Autosports, in Granbury, Texas; The Original FM Store, in St. Clair Shores, Mich.; Velocity Motorsports, in Raleigh, N.C.; Western Eagle Racing/Eurosports, in Commerce City, Colo.; and now Huffaker Engineering, in Sonoma, Calif.
