Trey Hutchens, a fourth-generation racer from Lexington, NC who is entering his tenth year of racing, is slowly becoming one of NASCAR’s most highly recruited talents. Hutchens career has extended from the likes of USAC Quarter Midgets all the way to one of NASCAR’s National Series: the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Hutchens, at only nineteen years of age, has progressed through the ranks of motorsports efficiently, yet methodically. In 2017, Hutchens competed part-time in NASCAR’s top regional development series, the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. In addition, the former USAC Quarter Midget Champion and multiple race winner made his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut where he finished a respectable sixteenth. Other accolades accredited to Hutchens name include the 2015 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour “Rookie of the Year.” Additionally, Trey was awarded back-to-back NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour “Most Popular Driver” honors, an award predicated on the number of votes amassed by NASCAR fans casting their daily vote.
The Hutchens family has been racing modified cars for over sixty years across the southeast and the fourth-generation racer takes on multiple roles outside of the driver’s seat. Trey and his NASCAR veteran father, Bobby, work countless hours preparing his race cars for competition at the same race shop Bobby and his father worked in years prior when Bobby pursued his racing career. In addition, Trey acts as owner of Trey Hutchens Racing, LLC by managing all public relations. This includes managing his website, treyhutchensracing.com, all social media accounts including Twitter, Facebook, etc., and relations with sponsors.
Away from the race track, Trey is a former Senior Class President at North Davidson High School where he battled for a different type of Top-5: Trey finished third in academic standing out of his 350 student graduating class. Today, Hutchens attends North Carolina State University in pursuit of a Mechanical Engineering degree with a minor in Computer Programming. His ability to maintain a 4.0 GPA only further solidifies his commitment to furthering his knowledge of his race car to become a better race car driver.
