From 1955-1970, Huebner was as good as it got in Southwest auto racing, winning the Western State Championship and three Tri-City championships as part of one of the top auto racing families in Arizona history, including his son Jeff Huebner, brother John Huebner and grandson Jeremy Huebner, who is one of the West’s top young drivers.
