RaceLife Episode Four: Justin Hutto 2019 NHRA Texas Tour
HOUSTON, TX. (Nov. 11, 2019): Today, Justin Hutto released the fourth episode of RaceLife: an all-access video series which shows his experiences on the NHRA tour in both Competition Eliminator and Stock Eliminator.
Throughout this episode, Hutto gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look into what it’s like to race on the NHRA tour as a Sportsman racer. He also shares the lessons he’s learned on the racetrack and in the boardroom as he acquires sponsors in route to his dream of racing in Top Fuel.
“I want viewers to be entertained and see the thought process I go through during races, but more importantly I hope people grow in their faith through these episodes,” says Hutto. “I really believe that you can make a living doing something you’re passionate about, if you find a way to solve important problems through that passion. A mentor once told me that you get paid when you solve problems, and that’s stuck with me through the years. The best results that could come from this series are viewers growing in faith, and deciding to work toward living their dream because of my story.”
Throughout this episode, you’ll see Hutto compete at the NHRA Divisional and NHRA Spring Nationals at Houston Raceway, as well as the NHRA Double Divisional at the Texas Motorplex in Dallas.
