June 28th, 2013 - Hubbard Competes in 7th Annual Firecracker 100
1Austin Hubbard competed in the opening round of the 7th Annual Firecracker 100 on Thursday evening in his #11 Hubbard Motorsports/Mastersbilt by Huey/Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model.

Fifty-seven entries registered for battle, and a third place finish in his heat race locked Austin into the fifteenth starting spot for the 30 lap, $6,000-to-win preliminary feature. He went on to advance four spots to record an eleventh place finish at the checkered flag.

Friday's $6,000-to-win program was postponed until Saturday afternoon by Mother Nature, and with 59 entries in the pits Austin qualified third fastest in his group before winning his heat race to lock into the redraw for the feature. In the redraw he was the recipient of the fifth starting spot, and on a daytime, typical track passing would be difficult for the feature. As a result he was only able to manage a fourth place finish behind race winner, Josh Richards, Shane Clanton, and Jared Landers.

On Saturday evening the $30,000-to-win finale was contested, and via his performance in preliminary action Hubbard started on the pole of the sixth heat, and a second place finish resulted in him starting twelfth in the 100 lap finale. More rain in the area resulted in a heavy and fast track, and Austin would ultimately retire just before the halfway point of the feature to a 19th place finish.

June 22nd, 2013 - Austin Hubbard Races to Second Win of 2013
Austin Hubbard enjoyed a great weekend in his #11 Trinity Logistics/Hubbard Motorsports/Mastersbilt by Huey/Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model as he competed in Maryland and Delaware, and by the time the action was complete he had claimed his second win of the 2013 campaign.

On Friday night he traveled to Hagerstown Speedway (Hagerstown, Maryland) for a $3,000-to-win, unsanctioned event, which drew a field of twenty-eight Super Late Models to the historic, 1/2 mile oval. In the feature Austin battled in the top five throughout the event, and actually took the lead from Jamie Lathroum on lap 25 before settling into a fourth place finish behind race winner, Lathroum, Gregg Satterlee, and Jeremy Miller.

Saturday night took Austin to his home track, Delaware International Speedway (Delmar, Delaware) for the Fall Nationals Qualifier. Hubbard would score his second win of the year by the time the night was over, but it was far from easy for the 21-year-old driver. He started the night by winning his heat race from the last starting spot to earn the apparent pole for the feature, but with the top ten cars inverted for feature action he started tenth alongside Ricky Elliott, who was riding a seven race winning streak into the event. Hubbard wasted little time working his way forward as he was up to the third spot by lap 3 as he worked the cushion. One lap later he bolted to the top spot and never looked back on his way to the victory, which came over Donald Lingo Jr., David Hill, David Pettyjohn, and Lou Johnson.

June 8th, 2013 - Austin Falls Short of Qualifying for Dream 100 Preliminary Feature

1Austin Hubbard competed in the opening round of the 19th Annual Dream 100 at Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) on Thursday night in his #11 Trinity Logistics/Hubbard Motorsports/Mastersbilt by Huey/Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model. Eighty-four entries took to the 1/2 mile oval in a program that saw the field divided in half with each half battling for a $2,500 top prize. Qualifying action resulted in Hubbard starting sixth in his heat race, and early in the heat he battled for a transfer spot before slipping to a sixth place finish, which sent him to a b-main. In the b-main he again battled the handle as he slipped backwards out of a transfer position. As a result his night ended early.

Friday evening found the team hoping for better luck as a pair of $5,000-to-win features were scheduled with the field again split. Unfortunately bad luck bit the team again early in the night, when the nose of his #11 Super Late Model entry folded under his front tires in qualifications. As a result he started at the tail of a heat race, and only was able to manage an eighth place finish, which positioned him starting deep in a b-main. He would fail to reach a transfer spot from the b-main to the feature.

On Saturday evening the $100,000-to-win finale headlined the program, and Austin started his night by storming from the eleventh starting spot to a fourth place finish. His performance left him one spot short of transferring to the feature, and as a result he had to run a b-main. In the b-main he ran in a transfer spot until a late-race restart shuffled him backwards in the pack as his night ended early.

June 4th, 2013 - Austin Hubbard Competes in Appalachian Mountain Speedweek
1Austin competed in the opening round of the Appalachian Mountain Speedweek (AMS) Series on Friday night at Potomac Speedway (Budds Creek, Maryland). Twenty-three entries were on hand for the $5,000-to-win race, and after qualifying eighth fastest Hubbard finished second in his heat race. He started fifth in the feature, but a lap one melee forced him to the tail of the field. By lap 14 he had raced his way into the top ten and would reach as high as the fifth spot before the tires began to go away on his entry, and he slipped to a thirteenth place finish at the checkered flag.

Saturday night took the team to Hagerstown Speedway (Hagerstown, Maryland) for the second round of the AMS, which also posted a $5,000 top prize, and saw the entry list swell to thirty-six competitors. Qualifying positioned Hubbard starting second in his heat, and he charged to the heat race win to lock into the redraw for the feature. After receiving the fifth starting spot for the finale Austin battled in the top five throughout the event before crossing the finish line in fifth behind race winner, Jason Covert, Gregg Satterlee, Dany Stone, and Tyler Hershey.

After falling victim to rain on Sunday night at Winchester Speedway (Winchester, Virginia), the Appalachian Mountain Speedweek rolled into Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex (Markleysburg, Pennsylvania) on Monday evening. With forty-two cars entered itt would prove to be a frustrating night for the team as struggles in qualifying and heat race action forced Hubbard to a b-main, where he finished third. With only the top two finishers transferring to the feature his night drew to an early end.

Tuesday night found Austin looking for better luck after Monday night's disappointment as the AMS tour traveled to Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania) for another $5,000-to-win program. Forty-two super Late Models once again filled the pit area, and a fourth place finish in his heat race resulted in Austin starting thirteenth on the grid for the 40 lap feature. In the main event he mounted a great charge to a second place finish behind race winner, Rick Eckert. It was a much-needed strong run for the team!
