October 12, 2023, Tampa FL. Arvada, CO is home to a rising star in the world of auto racing. At just 20 years old, Cassidy Hinds has been blazing a trail in the local racing scene, making a name for herself with impressive performances at Colorado National Speedway. In the 2023 season, she finished 4th in the championship points standings in the Super Late Model division and 9th in the Pro Truck Series.
Now, Cassidy is taking her talents back to the West Coast, where she will be pulling double duty in the SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour, competing in both the Pro and Super Late Model divisions for Naake Klauer Motorsports (NKM). This exciting return to NKM demonstrates Cassidy's hunger for new challenges and her ambition to conquer the racing world on a broader scale by making her first start in a Super Late Model at Kern County Raceway on Sunday. “We are looking for Cassidy to gain valuable seat time in the Super Late Model since this will be her first start at Kern in that series but look for her to make a run for the checkers in the Pro Late Model,” said NKM owner Mike Naake. The 35th Annual October Classic will attract the top seasoned Super Late Model drivers from the West Coast.
Hinds is known for her fearless driving style and remarkable skill behind the wheel in what is a predominantly male-dominated sport. Cassidy has made a significant impact on the Colorado racing community both on and off the track and is definitely a fan favorite at her home track of Colorado National Speedway. Her passion for racing and unyielding determination have been evident as she has been able to maintain a balance between racing and school. Cassidy is a Junior at Metropolitan State University of Denver where she is majoring in Sports Nutrition.
“I’m so excited to be racing a Super Late Model at Kern Country Raceway in the Southwest Tour. This will be a new experience for me. I’ve raced pro late models at Kern for three years but haven’t gotten a chance to run a Super Late Model for Naake-Klauer Motorsports until now which will be super exciting! I can’t wait to see what we can do with both the Pro Late Model and Super Late Model this weekend,” said Cassidy.
Cassidy's supporters, fellow racers, and fans eagerly anticipate her performance on the West Coast, where she will undoubtedly bring her trademark enthusiasm, determination, and competitive spirit to the track.
