Biography

Humble Beginnings 

Trent Hindman, son of Kim & Douglas, started racing karts as an 8 year old. After winning multiple club championships at Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ in 2005, he began competing in World Karting Association National events. 2008 was an exceptional year for Trent. In addition to finishing in the top three in WKA season points, Trent also competed in the STARS of Karting series. Trent won the Cadet East Division, Cadet West Division, and topped it off with the Cadet National Championship. He competed in the SKUSA Supernationals that year as well, finishing in second place in HPV Junior. 2010 was a major transition year for Trent, as he was able to make the switch from racing karts to single seater formula cars with the Skip Barber Racing School.
