On-Track Summary

Entering Prodigy Week with experience competing in sports cars, Hibbitt struggled early on to find pace and adapt to the race car, but adapted, trying new techniques and lines to find speed. In the end, Hibbitt went second quickest on track, just shy of the Chase winner Will Redford. Hibbitt has a good foundation, great talent, and performs under pressure. He just requires a few more sessions to find speed than his top competitors. At only 15 years of age, he has proven that he has the pace, but will does he have the last tenth to be a champion? Hibbitt may be a second round pick for his potential and excellent teamwork, and would be a great pick if he slipped late into the third round.

Off-Track Summary

Hibbitt was very focused and determined to learn. A great teammate, helping others with their video and data, ensuring everyone had a way to review it back at the hotel, Hibbitt is a great teammate. While he has slightly shy personality, Hibbitt is not afraid to stand up and be a team leader when needed, nor take on the media interviews, as evident at Prodigy Week and prior.

Bio

From Westerville, Ohio, Hibbitt began his racing career at age 5 when his parents formed the family-owned race team, Hibbitt Motorsports. In Kamden’s seven-plus (7+) years behind the wheel while driving quarter midgets, he earned one hundred twelve (112) feature wins and twenty (20) championships including two USAC Midwest Thunder Regional Titles. After retiring from quarter midgets, I moved my focus to sports cars and road racing. In 2022, I completed multiple test sessions, was a Mazda Motorsports Spec MX-5 Shootout Nominee and in December of that year, and at only 13 years old, became one of the youngest drivers to obtain his full competition license through the National Auto Sport Association (NASA). In 2023, I began my first full season of road racing where I competed in the highly-competitive Spec Miata class where I earned one runner-up result along with multiple top five and top ten finishes. In November of 2023, I earned my highest honor to date being named as a Mazda Motorsports factory driver and ambassador for the 2024 season after winning the Mazda Motorsports Spec MX-5 Shootout at Carolina Motorsports Park. In May of 2024, I was one of 20 drivers worldwide to be selected to participate in Racing Prodigy’s prestigious “Prodigy Week” in Atlanta, Georgia. I pride myself on performing well in the classroom. On a path to be a future engineer, I am currently taking advanced placement classes in mathematics, English and global studies and for the past four (4) years, I have achieved straight As for all grading periods. Finally, I am currently a member of my high school’s band program. I enjoy spending my free time racing on the simulator, video production, and being around family and friends.
