7/13/2021 - For Immediate Release
Steve Huff Motorsports wins Summer Nationals Championship e350 class hydroplane racing in Olympia, WA last the weekend at the Black Lake Regatta.
A Seattle Drag & Ski hosted event, the Summer Nationals Championship went to SeaTac, WA resident Steve Huff in a near photo finish against top competitors in the Pro-Lite Hydroplane racing class.
At speeds exceeding 120mph on a 1.25mi, 4 lap, race course, Steve Huff driver and owner of the The Flood Guys e98 hydroplane became the Summer Nationals champion while running out of fuel.
"Going into the last corner I could feel the engine chugging as it was starved for fuel, but just as we came out of Turn 2, it caught and I was all in, wing down, foot down, go, go, GO!!" says very happy Steve Huff.
Steve is currently battling Stage 4 cancer, but refuses to let it affect his passion for racing. "It is with the help and support of my amazing team of doctors at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and UW Medical Center that I've been able to move through treatment and still do what I love most. My teammates and the entire racing community continue to support me along with our sponsor The Flood Guys." says Steve. "It's a double win with starting and responding well to my immunotherapy and then to take the Summer National Championship over the weekend. What more could a guy ask for?"
