Hubinette Forms Samuel Hubinette Racing, Announces Mopar-Powered Two-Car Dodge Team For 2010

By Auto News Log • March 22nd, 2010

Two-time Formula DRIFT (FD) champion Samuel Hubinette is returning to the FD series with a new factory-backed Dodge team in 2010.

Hubinette has formed his own racing operation, Samuel Hubinette Racing (SHR). With support from sponsors including Dodge and BFG, Hubinette’s SHR organization will field a Mopar-powered two-car team for the 2010 FD season.

“This is a new chapter for us,” said Hubinette. “I’m very excited to be back in competition and to take on a new role as team owner this year.” The veteran Hubinette will drift his new Dodge Challenger, while FD newcomer Andrew “ACP” Comrie-Picard will take the wheel of the team’s familiar Dodge Viper SRT10.

Hubinette has competed in the FD Series under the NuFormz Racing banner since the series’ inception in 2004, capturing two championships in his first three seasons.

Hubinette to date owns the most wins (nine) of any FD Series driver. The two-time FD champion was dealt an enormous blow when NuFormz team owner Shaun Carlson passed away suddenly last October. Hubinette will carry on in memory of his departed friend and colleague.

“Shaun’s tragic death was a shock to us all,” said Hubinette. “We hope to do him proud out there this season.”
