Summer 2024

Throwback Thursday: Bobby Hillin, July 1991

Bobby Hillin Jr. was, at one point, the youngest driver ever to win a Winston Cup Series event, a former competitor in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series and NASCAR Busch Series, and a committed Christian.

Determined to keep his faith central in his life, Bobby and his wife became Young Life leaders in the mid-90s while Bobby was racing, in order to pour into young people around them. He was never afraid to use mistakes he made as examples, and did his best to live out his faith in the auto racing world.

“I’ve found in my own career that I’ve had a better ministry to other people in the midst of my failures than I’ve ever had in my successes.”

Hillin is currently CEO of T-Rex Engineering & Construction in Texas.
