c had a very impressive showing in his first NASCAR XFINITY race at the Bristol International Speedway, battling his way into the top-10 in the closing laps of the race at the wheel of the No. 46 Beatin' Cancer with Duke Camaro fielded by Precision Performance Motorsports. After late race cautions, Quin was shuffled back a few spots on the restarts to finish the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 in the 15th position on the lead lap.
In what was Houff's first-ever race in an XFINITY racecar, Houff proved how effective the Precision Performance Motorsports program is in providing rising stars of NASCAR with the best opportunities to race competitively in the upper NASCAR series and battle with the sport's best drivers. Houff utilized this opportunity to out qualify 19 more experienced drivers including some of the Monster Cup affiliated teams and race solidly in the top-15 throughout much of the 300-lap event.
Quin certainly had social media "a buzz" with only 1 practice in the race car due to rain, followed by a great qualifying effort and then holding close to his starting position for the first race segment. A significant feat in his first XFINITY race especially at Bristol.
"Wow what a day! Top 15 couldn't have asked for anymore this weekend. Precision Performance Motorsports did awesome! So excited for RVA! Glory be to God!" said Quin in his post-race tweet. I am beyond blessed to be able to have this opportunity and I couldn't thank PPM and everyone enough for all the support."
"The Precision Performance Team has once again put together the best value in XFINITY Series racing for this event," said team owner Richard Gdovic. "I am very proud of their efforts as well as Quin's. Every time our team brings a car to the race track, we expect to be the top performing part time team and the best value for our driver's and their sponsors. Quin had a great performance with our team while his sponsors and family enjoyed the hospitality and behind the scenes experience the Precision Performance Team is well known for."
Quin began branding his race cars with the "Beatin' Cancer with Duke" campaign to honor his mother and grandmother, who were both diagnosed with breast cancer. The campaign, which incorporates Quin's Duke Cancer Institute fundraising website which launched in 2016, honors all women who are currently fighting cancer or have battled with cancer in the past.
