More info on Justin:
Justin Hutto is a NHRA drag racer from Houston, TX. He began his racing career in 2008 at the young age of 10. In his first two races in a Jr. Dragster, Hutto accomplished runner-up finishes. In 2013, he raced in his first full points series, won three races, the most-improved driver award for the series, and his first championship. The following year he won six races, won the NHRA Jr. Dragster Top Performer Award (national recognition), won two more championships, and qualified for the IHRA World Finals- an invite only event for the top 16 drivers in the world.
In 2015, Hutto moved up to Stock Eliminator and runner-uped in his first IHRA race in the class- he won in his second. He also drove in the Jr. Dragster class that year and won seven races- including a double up victory in Stock and Jr. Dragster.
In 2016, Hutto made multiple final round appearances as he moved into the NHRA side of Stock Eliminator racing. In 2017, he won his first NHRA Divisional in Stock Eliminator and finished 12th out of 107 in the NHRA South Central division.
In 2018, Hutto moved up to racing a 190 mph Comp Eliminator dragster. For his
success on and off the track, he was also chosen as a member of Drag Illustrated Magazine’s 30 under 30 list that year. His dream is to race 330 mph Top Fuel Dragsters professionally, and share his story to show young people they can live their dreams through hard work and faith.
