AJPE Joins Huddleston Performance Lowmad, 5.300 Hemi To Boost Historic Wagon
The Lowmad Team spent the 2015 racing season learning the ropes of their new Pro Extreme entry. As the season came to an end, it was time for the Huddleston Family to make the next step in the infamous wagon’s career. Many hours of research led them to the team at Alan Johnson Performance Engineering for their next challenge.
After months of development, the new partnership will see a pair of AJPE 5.300 Hemi’s coming into the Lowmad’s stable for the 2016 season. The new engines are currently being finished for fitment to the 55’ Chevy Wagon, and both AJPE and the Huddleston Family are looking forward to the results from these powerful pieces.
Lowmad Driver and Huddleston Performance head engine builder Thomas Huddleston is thrilled with the new partnership, “We couldn’t ask for better people to work with on our Pro Extreme Program. We were looking to get outside the normal in 2016, and after some conversations with the guys at AJPE it became clear they were the right people for us. I’m excited to see what kind of numbers we can put up with this new combo. We will have quite a bit more horsepower than last season, and I think the results will show that as we progress in 2016.”
AJPE is just as eager to welcome Bo, Tammy, and Thomas Huddleston to their 5.300 Hemi Program in 2016. Owner Alan Johnson had this to say about the upcoming partnership, “Up until recently, Outlaw Pro-Modified did not have a minimum weight in place which made our 5.300 Hemi program unappealing to anyone considering an engine of this size. With changes the Huddleston’s have put in place to the “LOWMAD” along with several engine upgrades from the AJPE design team, we believe this will be a great fit for both AJPE and Huddleston Performance during the 2016 race season.”
The first of two 5.300 Hemi’s is scheduled for delivery by mid-January, and will hit the race track shortly after. For full updates on the progress of the Lowmad Team with their new combination be sure to go to www.TheLowmad.com .
