15-year old is Making a Name for Herself and Building an Impressive Resume’

JEROME, IDAHO (July 24, 2012)- Hannah Newhouse, driving theĀ Thompson Motorsports #61 Coca-Cola/ESPN the ZONE sponsored Chevrolet, has scored three wins along with five fast time awards in the first ten races this season in the Super Stock division at the third-mile paved oval of Magic Valley Speedway in Twin Falls, Idaho.

Through the first ten races in the Commercial Tire Super Stock division, the feature NASCAR Whelen All American Series class at the speedway, Newhouse has nine top five and ten top ten finishes including three victories, two second place finishes, four third place performances, and a ninth place effort. She is hoping to become the youngest ever female feature division champion.

Newhouse currently leads the point standings by 14-points in the NASCAR All American Series at Magic Valley Speedway where her best 18 finishes will place her in the national rankings at the end of the season in September. She has already established historical records becoming the first female to win in the feature class at Magic Valley and is firmly in the NASCAR record books as the youngest ever female feature event winner in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series.

“Our goal is to win the track championship,” Newhouse said. “We have already accomplished a lot this season but there is a lot more racing to do. If we can continue doing what we have done so far we will achieve our ultimate goal, and that is win the track championship.”

Newhouse may be one of the most talented young racers behind the wheel in America but she also drives for a world-class racing team. Thompson Motorsports, owned by Rich Thompson a successful business entrepreneur in Jerome and managed by Brett Thompson a veteran of NASCAR competition, fields and maintains the Chevrolet Camaro that Newhouse drives.

“Hannah is holding her own and has been real impressive so far this season,” offered Brett Thompson, Team Manager. “She listens really well, provides good feedback to the crew, and is very poised behind the wheel. We definitely want her to succeed and have an opportunity to move up in the sport. We believe in her and have a lot of confidence in her ability.”

Newhouse is back in action this Saturday night in NASCAR Whelen All American Series at MVS where she will compete in two main events to make-up for a rain out two weeks ago. This past Saturday, Newhouse scored her first ASA Intermountain Pro Truck Series victory and backed that up with a third place effort in a special double main event. She was rookie-of-the year in the ASA trucks last season and is currently second in the point standings this season.
