GoPro Karting Challenge Round 12:
A rising star in the North Carolina kart leagues, Huneycutt is piloting her Briggs cadet kart for HMM in the 2019 GoPro Motorpolex Karting Challenge. Since joining HMM, the Charlotte, NC native has not slowed down. From setting lap records to consistently gaining speed she is a force to be reckoned with. A fourth grader at Huntersville Elementary, Huneycutt is a class favorite with her outgoing personality and a fan favorite off the track. On the track, she is a smooth and steady competitor who consistently gains championship positions. Huneycutt dreams of racing at the top level proving that girls can be just as fast and competitive as boys in motorsports.
Huneycutt started her racing career in 2018 at K1 Speed in Concord, NC. During her inaugural season, she scored 5 wins, 3 Top-5s, and 1 Top-10 finish placing her 2nd out of 50 competitors in the Junior League championship missing first place by only 4 points. Huneycutt also managed to set the junior track record three times.
For her Sophmore year, Huneycutt graduated from K1 Speed to GoPro Motorplex where she competes against the best 8 – 12-year-old cadet drivers on the east coast at speeds up to 56 mph. She is currently ranked 7th in the championship out of 41 competitors with one race left in the season.

Madison’s racing future is limitless! But, even with all the talent in the world, she can’t do it alone. Racing is an extremely expensive sport, and without the support of fans, friends and family, none of this would be possible.
Even the smallest donation makes a huge impact on helping a little girl chase her big dreams of becoming a professional racer and proving girls have what it takes to be the best in motorsports!
As the coach at HMM, Shannon’s nine years of teaching experience provides a strong background in getting kids to achieve their best. Her ability to get young athletes in the right frame of mind before competing is invaluable to Madison’s success on the track. “We celebrate progress and work on areas of improvement” is a motto that Shannon lives by. Shannon’s love for motorsports started when she attended her first NASCAR race and has grown from her husband’s affiliation with a NASCAR team as well as Formula E and most importantly her daughter, Madison.
At the intersection of cars and technology is motorsports. Stephen’s motorsports passion ignited when he was on the partnership team at a NASCAR CUP team. Noticing the shift to electric vehicles, Stephen founded Huneycutt Motorsports Marketing which supports FIA Formula E in partnership acquisition. Supporting Madison’s racing program has been one of the most fun and enjoyable ventures he has taken on. “The racing at this level is just as fun as it is at the highest tier. The equipment is slower but the action is just as good.”
The best cheerleader on the East Coast. On race day she is cheering on her big sister and keeping everyone on schedule. She also helps keep all the nonracing siblings entertained.
