JUSTIN ELDREDGE CLAIMS FIRST CAREER TITLE
By – Dave Roberts
Justin Eldredge of Waterloo, NY enjoyed his greatest season in 2021, winning the Land of Legends Raceway Lloyds Contracting Hobby Stock championship with seven feature victories. It was his first career stock car title.
For Eldredge, it was a dream come true. “I didn’t expect this to happen. It was a great season.”
In addition to his success at the Land of Legends Raceway, the 23 year old racing star also picked up five wins at nearby Outlaw Speedway where he finished fifth in Hobby Stock points. Justin comes from a racing background. His father Jamie drove Street Stocks and his brother Jamie Jr also competes in the Lloyds Contracting Hobby Stock division. In addition to racing weekly in the Hobby Stock division, Justin often campaigns in area demolition derbies and enduro events. Next up, Justin will drive in the 2022 Hangover, scheduled for New Years Day, Gets A Double Shot Round Two. Justin will again run both the four cylinder and six cylinder classes.
“I hope to do better this time. Last time, I wasn’t very happy with my results.”
Justin began his racing career in 2010 racing three seasons, then taking four years off, making a comeback in 2018. In the 2022 season, he’ll upgrade his Saturday night program at Land of Legends Raceway. Not only will he attempt to duplicate his Hobby Stock Championship effort and will also compete in the Eldredge & Sons Scrap Street Stock division, Justin’s family business.
In addition to Eldredge & Sons Scrap sponsoring his racing endeavors, Justin has the support of Big Mike’s Auto, Team 15 and Schuyler Fabrication.
Helping out in the pit area are Jamie Sr, Anthony Guerrerri, Holley, and Mom.
