SPENCER HILL | OPINIONS EDITOR
Not only am I a senior at La Cueva High School and an editor for the school newspaper, but I have also been blessed with the opportunity to chase my dreams and do what I love outside of the red doors of LCHS. I may seem like a normal student when I’m spending countless hours working on my math homework, or walking through C-hall to get to class on time, but I am always looking ahead and focused on my future. Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to do one thing in life: race cars. For most, racing is a family sport, and our team is no different. We love the sport and we always travel together. We are a team of three and we each have our own strengths that makes us successful.
Meet the Spencer Hill Racing team:
Charley is the President of Spencer Hill Racing LLC and he works on the day to day business of SHR. At the track he works the video and is the photographer. You can usually find Charley behind the wheel towing the race trailer to the events.
Jim is the crew chief that makes all of this happen. He works tirelessly on and off the track to keep the car safe and fast as possible. Jim is a master fabricator/welder by trade but his passion lies with fast motors, dirt, and tires. He rides dirt bikes as often as he can but he is always ready for our next race.
Spencer is the team driver. He has been behind the wheel of anything that goes fast since he was two years old. Spencer started his racing career at eight years old racing Speedway karts. He transitioned from karts to mini sprints, and at thirteen, he was chosen for Ron Sutton’s Winner’s Circle which was a NASCAR Driver Developmental Program in Northern California. He received valuable marketing and racing skills and had a lot of fun racing a Ford Focus Midget on the asphalt. 2013 once again found him racing in Northern California in a NASCAR Whelen Modified car where he had eight starts and three top tens. In 2014, Spencer came back to his roots and raced for team SHR; where he won six main events at five different tracks.
