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.

In 2009, Trent once again contested the World Karting Association National series, ending up with two National victories en route to a season ending 2nd and 3rd place finish overall. He was awarded "Most Improved Junior Driver" at the end of the season.

Trent began the transition into cars in early 2009. He competed in several Skip Barber Regional races, finishing on the podium many times. By the beginning of 2010, Trent finished 4th overall in points in the Skip Barber Southern Series. He was awarded "Most Improved Driver" in the Skip Barber Southern Series.

In 2010, Trent continued to compete in the Skip Barber Regional Series. In December of 2010, Trent competed in the Skip Barber Karting Scholarship Shoot-out in Laguna Seca, California. After four intense days of competition, Trent was awarded one of the two top prizes; a scholarship to compete in the full 2011 season of the BFGoodrich/Skip Barber National Presented by Mazda. He is now part of the Mazdaspeed Motorsports Development Driver program. This is Trent's biggest accomplishment to date.
