Dominant drivers: No. 2 Abe Huls

January 27, 2011 5 Comments

Abe Huls has a track championship and runner-up points finish over the past two seasons.

Quincy Raceways fans will always be grateful to Abe Huls, one of only three drivers who has been with the stock car series full-time since its inception in 2008. The stock cars have struggled for bodies almost since day one, but Honest Abe could always be found in the pits on most Sunday nights.

And Huls did more than just show up, fashioning three solid seasons, but he was especially impressive the past two. The Carthage driver won the 2009 track championship (on the last week of the season) and then ran second to Terry Houston in 2010. Those accomplishments earned him the No. 2 spot in our countdown of most dominant drivers over the past campaigns.

Word is, however, Huls won’t be running at the Bullring full-time in 2011, and that’s a shame. That would mean both the 2010 champ and runner-up would be opting out of full-time commitments this year. Houston has already said he would not be running for points, although we’re counting on Dave Moore to change his mind about that. If both Huls and Houston follow through with their pledges that means Steve Steinkuhler, Jerry Jansen and Andrew Griffin — the next-highest points finishes — would be cast into the favorite’s role.

    Stevie, Stevie Steive what you trying to do to me man? I already have my wife. Jason Cook, Clean Livin Joe Bliven, and countless others upset with me. All I need is for Terry to think I was trying to talk him into running for points. Only thing I would ever try and talk him out of was if he thinking about running a chevy or dodge motor. Beside that if he gets mad at me, He will want to charge me more for the apprenticeship I have at his race shop.

    I would put aaron and abe as the two i would most likely worry about when i come to quincy, both extremely smooth and if Aaron gets the bad luck out of the way he will finish top 2 in points down there.

    yea the only time you would come to Quincy Houston wouldnt be running, then you would only have to worry about Hulls and Aaron! And 97 crew, its a ENGINE, not a motor!!!!!!
