With the COVID-19 pandemic halting any racing on the track, the Hughes sisters are taking full advantage of the situation.  

Older sister Bailey will be moving up a level this season if there is racing at the ASCS.

"We are going to be ready for this season this time around. I think with the delay in the race season, this is it, this is the one,” Baily Hughes said. "We are building three cars currently. We still have the two-barrel car from last year and we have to ASC cars and one as a backup.”

Her younger sister, Jaiden might not be racing but has become the biggest supporter for her older sister Bailey. She has hopes for her sister if the season takes place.

"Now we have a couple extra weeks to get going, we can organize the shop and do double checks," Jaiden said.

“This is a huge accomplishment to move up in the racing world. To be able to afford this sport, especially right now when everyone is on edge. We are just making it our way to get better and to be able to move up to the next division," Jaiden said.

Along with building a trifecta of new cars, Bailey recently graduated from the Air National Guard. With the current pandemic, she understands her position with the military is even more important.

"Being able to be a part of the military within this outbreak has really expanded my knowledge about how the military puts their action in, not just overseas, but within the nation,” Baily said.

Hopefully we have race season this summer every driver along with Bailey will be ready to flip up some mud.

"Just because of the outbreak, we have been able to be suction cupped to our house. I feel like a lot of us are ready and prepared, but now we are able to take those extra few precautions to make sure that we go through everything one time to make sure we are prepared,” Baily said.
