Newhouse Sets Her Goals for Triple Duty in 2016 Season

February 4, 2016

Boise, ID- When her 2015 plans of running in the NASCAR K&N West Series fell short due to funding, 19 year old Hannah Newhouse didn’t let that get her down and this upcoming season she has her eyes on the prize. Three prizes that is. After difficulty finding the funding to run the K&N Pro Series, Newhouse and her team have decided to compete where the budget best fits the bill. The Twin Falls native plans on taking on three separate series in search of Championships. Hannah will be making her return to the Pro Truck Series which races regionally at tracks such as Rocky Mountain Raceways, Meridian Speedway, Pocatello Speedway, and Magic Valley Speedway.

There are currently 10 races on the schedule

with two two-day shows. Newhouse competed

full time in the series in 2013 under Thompson

Motorsports where she finished 2nd in the

championship standings. Newhouse and her team

also have plan to take on two separate local late

model divisions; The Meridian Big 5 series and the

Rocky Mountain Raceways Late model series..

The Meridian Big 5 series holds true to its name

where it will host five late model races at

Meridian Speedway where-as Rocky Mountain Raceways will hold 6 events. Last year Hannah competed in 4 of the 5 late model events at Meridian Speedway where she rallied 2 top 5 finishes. Between the three combined race schedules there is a total of 21 races. Fortunately for Hannah, there are only two conflicting dates between all three schedules in which she will have to make a decision. Luckily she has the Pro Truck rule book on her side where the series lets you have a substitute for one race and drop a race as well.

“I am really excited about this season and making my return to the Pro Truck series as well as getting lots of seat time in my late model. We have had success at many of the tracks and in the truck series. Ultimately we are in search of championships this year.” Hannah also commented that she has never been more excited to get behind the wheel of a truck because she will get the opportunity to compete against both her brother, Mason Newhouse, and her father, John Newhouse, who will also be competing full time in the Pro Truck Series. 

Newhouse has plans to run select super late model races outside of the series as well such as the Montana 200 and Fall Classic at the Las Vegas Bullring. She is also shooting to compete in the NASCAR K&N West Race at Meridian Speedway if funding permits. “We are really excited to have Boise State University on with us for the 2016 season as well. We have formed a really unique relationship with them and it has created an opportunity to pursue my racing and my education as well. As many know, racing is an expensive sport to be in and we are always looking to expand our program through sponsorship opportunities” quoted Hannah on her partnership with Boise State University.
