Bakersfield, CA – The winningest driver in Irwindale Speedway history has thrown his hat into the ring for the $10,000-to-win SaltedMetals Architectural Metals Design And Consulting 100 presented by Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse San Dimas”. Last weekend, Trevor Huddleston scored his 68th career feature win at Irwindale Speedway to earn the honor. This weekend he will try to earn his first win in the Spears Srl Southwest Tour Series and extend that number even further, over Irwindale Speedway legend Rip Michels.
Huddleston has been more successful than any other driver in the speedway’s history, but he is still looking for his first SRL triumph. The Agoura Hills, CA driver has four top-five, and five top-10 finishes in nine SRL starts at the facility. That includes a best finish of second in 2017. Overall Huddleston will make his 18th career series start and would love to pick up a $12,500 victory, thanks to Salted Metals and the Motor City Throwdown Challenge.
Huddleston’s list of accomplishments are lengthy, and include five NASCAR Advanced Auto Parts State of California Regional Championships. In 2017 he was the National Championship runner-up, scoring 22 wins inside the regional window. He is the 2021 “Pro Late Model Interstate Shootout presented by Sunrise Ford” Champion and has earned two victories in the ARCA Menards Pro Series West. In that series he has two finishes of fourth in the championship standings to go along with a sixth in his rookie season.
The “Salted Metals 100 presented by Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse” will see the SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour Series visit Irwindale Speedway for the 21st-time its history. $10,000 will be on the line for the winner, thanks to Salted Metals and David Mulcahy.
