Local racer to take track in Arlington Supercross
By Erik Walsh
Monitor Staff Writer

SEVEN POINTS– Seven Points resident, 20 year-old Jeremy Huddleston, will be racing at the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Supercross Series at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington Feb. 18.
It has taken Jeremy a lot of time and hard work to get to a big stage like Cowboys Stadium.
“It’s been a family thing,” Mike Huddleston, Jeremy’s father, told The Monitor Tuesday. The senior Huddleston raced when he was younger and the junior followed in his tracks.
“He’s been racing since he was 5,” his father said.
Already a 15-year veteran, Jeremy knows a thing or two about winning.
“He has picked up two number one awards and has competed in national events in Tennessee and Oklahoma,” Dad added.
Growing up around racing helps to have the competitive edge, but Jeremy works and practices hard, doing physical fitness at local gyms and keeping his riding skills sharp at a Kemp race track.
He’s got the “want to win,” his father explained.
The Supercross event in Arlington Saturday is expected to be heavily attended by 25,000-40,000 people.
Riding Supercross is not cheap, so Huddleston has 15 sponsors, including his father’s autobody shop, to help pay for transportation and equipment.
Jeremy will race in Supercross events at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga., then the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Mo. during the next two weeks.
