ISOM – Allen Central High School student Josh Huff dominated the 2016 Hoosier Spring Nationals at Mountaineer Kartway over the weekend.
Huff, 16, set the fast time in both AKRA Medium and AKRA Heavy classes. The 16-year-old, however, ran into problems with his tires in the AKRA Medium feature and finished third. But when it was time for the 30-lap AKRA Heavy feature race, Huff had his kart on a rail. Huff led the entire 30- lap feature race to earn a $1,000.00 purse with the first-place finish.
Hoosier Tire representatives presented Huff with a hat and headband with their name on it. Huff’s race sponsors – Appalachian Pools, C & C Signs, Huff Karting Tires, www.smallcarweekly.com and Krystal Klear Photography – help to make his 2016 race season possible.
Huff ranks as one of the state’s top young kart drivers. He has already won multiple feature races in the 2016 season.
Huff is the son of Robert and Anita Huff of Raven in Knott County. He is the grandson of the late Herman and Martha Combs of Raven and Roy and Dockie Huff of Dema.
