Hunter Thomas grew up in the shadows of Darlington Raceway in the small town of Darlington, S.C. In his childhood, Hunter traveled the East Coast attending races and making memories with his dad. However, as time went on, the passion for racing just became stronger. Hunter knew that he was meant to be in the garage and media center, but he was just like every other college kid with very little connections and no direction.
In 2010, Hunter’s life changed forever after obtaining a public relations job at the local short track, Dillon Motor Speedway. Hunter was representing a driver in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series garage only after two months of being involved in the motorsports world. At the age of 20 years old, Hunter was the youngest team public relations representative in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series during the 2011 season. Not only was Hunter juggling multiple public relations endeavors, but he was also a full time student at Francis Marion University in Florence, S.C.
Hunter has worked either behind the scenes or alongside of eight different drivers and nine teams in NASCAR’s top-three series. He has also had the opportunity to be part of the public relations staff at Rockingham Speedway where events including the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, ARCA, UARA, Rev-Oil Pro Cup Series and the Frank Kimmel Street Stock Nationals have been hosted. From covering races at the local short tracks to covering events at the NASCAR Hall of Fame, Hunter has accomplished more than most in the few years he has been active in the sport. He has helped a speedway host a race or has worked with a team in nearly every NASCAR-sanctioned series in the country, including: the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, NASCAR Whelen Southern Modifieds and NASCAR Whelen All-American.
He has also been a contributing writer at the News & Press in Darlington, S.C. since 2010. While there, Hunter learned how a small town functions by covering local events, law enforcement, government meetings, non-profit organizations, South Carolina's government system and various sporting events. Although every experience is just slightly different, two things have stayed consistent throughout Hunter’s career, his faith in God and the determination to prove that he can be one of the best.
