Gainesville was one of our very favorite places to race! The fans there treated us like royalty. I have some really good memories from there.
Two of my all time favorite memories were there, and included Dick LaHaie in one, and Kenny Bernstein the other.

Good times!

Kenny is a good guy. I remember when he wanted to include drag racers in IROC events. My buddy , Ricky Rudd was driving for him in the Cup series and agreed to show him the ropes. Kenny followed RR around the track as Ricky increased speed . Ricky looked in the mirror and Kenny was in the wall and his IROC aspirations were over.

Eddie FourFather Hill - racing trophies in 9 decades


From Eddie and Ercie Hill

We are happy to announce the runner-up and third place trophies Eddie won at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit in Hallett, Oklahoma, on September 11-12, 2020 in his new Firman Formula B road racer, powered by a Kawasaki ZX1000 motorcycle engine. It was our first time on track with the new car.

This milestone represents nine decades of wins for Eddie, starting with the first trophy he won riding a Cushman motor scooter which he hopped up himself. He has now won trophies in the 1940’s, 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, 1980’s, 1990’s, 2000’s, 2010’s, and now 2020’s owning/driving/tuning dragsters, motorcycles, drag boats, and now open wheel road racers.

And he has the scars to prove it.

Eddie is the team owner/driver/tuner, and Ercie co-owns and acts as crew chief. Our crew members are Tito Barboza and Karl Strouhal. The race team is sponsored by Eddie Hill’s Fun Cycles, Inc., at 401 North Scott in Wichita Falls.

We give the honor and glory of our racing achievements to the Lord, and thank Him for blessing us so abundantly.

By the way, Eddie is 84 years old – blessed and highly favored - thank you, Lord!

Our local TV station did an interview with Ercie and I regarding our two podium finishes the first weekend out with our new Firman F1000 Kawasaki powered road racer.

Because with our first win with a Cushman motorscooter that I hopped up, being in 1949, and these last trophies in 2020, and some in every decade in between, that made it nine decades that we have been blessed with trophies, championships, or awards, and the station thought that was worth an interview.

The good Lord has blessed us beyond measure, and He gets all the credit and thanks!

Cheers, Eddie and Ercie

Congrats Eddie! My 85 yo mom still lives in Wichita Falls near the stadium. Your ears may be burning... the owner of your form ‘06 Heritage just bought my ‘05 Porsche Carrera GT. Small world!
