My name is Allen Huffman. Yes, I am both the Driver and Speaker for our faith based race team. I grew up around two of my favorite things today. Racing and Church. Now I've not always loved the later, but was always intrigued. I spent a lot of time as a kid at both a church and racetracks. What is funny is one I would beg to go to, and the other well... You might could say i had a drug issue as a kid. What i mean by that is that my mom drug me to church almost every time the little country church doors were open. Now i didn't always have to be drug, but you get the point.
Somewhere around 2003 God began speaking to me that He was calling me into ministry. Well, I knew better... or so I thought. After 3 years on the run ( not from the FBI, but God) I finally surrendered the call to the ministry and sold my ENTIRE race team operation. ( I think my brother is still sore about that one - haha). Anyways i attended a little college in the mountains of North Carolina and graduated with the best grades I've ever had.
From there we began this ministry based out of our Sunday school class and it has grown exponentially over the last few years. My passion is to make a positive impact in the lives of students and adults across the country. I love getting to know and work with students as I share both motivational stories and messages that we have lived out through our experience in NASCAR.
Today, We participate in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series competing in both the LM Super Trucks and Late Model Stock. Over the last 4 years we have worked hard to dig deeper, work harder, and walk closer with God as a unified family. This means both on and off the racetrack. We have had the privilege of winning 5 races within the last 14 months in the truck series and are excited as we walk into 2018. 2017 we competed in 15 race events, finishing 2nd in our overall divisional points standings and not finishing worse than 5th ( one time in the last 36 events), and 16 ministry events all across the nation. We hope to pick the momentum up this year as we work to add events in the public school systems as well as churches across the country! We also believe that its all about community in racing. Thats what has made this the greatest sport ever. Because of that, our motivation is seeing students come up through the ranks, learn about these cars, and see their success happen in racing. Thanks for reading and for allowing us to be a part of this great organization by sharing our story! God Bless -Allen
