Brian Hubble Dominates Junior Dragster Season at MIR

Seabrook, MD - Brian Hubble of Seabrook, MD, almost completely dominated the Junior Dragster category at Maryland International Raceway this season. The 12 year old, a 7th grader at Robert Goddard Middle School, won nearly every major title and his second consecutive track championship by a wide margin. Hubble, in his third year of racing, continued his winning tradition from 1995, where he won the MIR track championship, was named Junior Dragster driver of the year, and won the prestigious Sunoco Bracket Finals. In regaining the Junior Dragster track championship, Brian becomes MIR's first repeat Junior Dragster champion.

During the year Brian won the $500 August Blitz, a special race series that took place over the five weekends in August. Brian also became the first MIR Junior Dragster 'Ace,' by winning five races in the same season. He is on track to become the first 'Double Ace,' possibly before any of his competitors gain their first one. Brian drives like the big boys, and he has sponsors just like the big boys, too. His custom- painted, Briggs & Stratton-powered rail dragster proudly carries the names of Colonial Auto Auction of Upper Marlboro, MD, and Putnam Race Cars of Bowie, MD, on its flanks.

Away from the track, Brian becomes a normal 12-year old boy; he enjoys video games, football, basketball, and swimming. In addition, Brian is very active in his youth group at church. Brian Hubble's immediate goal for 1996 was to become the repeat Junior Dragster track champion. That goal attained, Brian has to wait a few years for the next one--to compete in a full-size Super Pro dragster when he turns 16 years old. Brian Hubble will be a seasoned veteran by then.
