Finding Inspiration in Every Turn


Our Story

In 1973, The McCarthy team was started by Tom McCarthy who kickstarted a family tradition in motorsports. Tom founded Thunderhill Raceway in1993 for all racers to have a facility they could call their own. Terry McCarthy was a second generation driver who raced in SCCA, NASCAR Trucks, and World Challenge events. As a 3rd generation racecar driver, Tommy McCarthy has won over 600 amateur races, including 7 National Championships in QMA, sweeping USAC events, winning the SCCA Spec Miata Championship in four of the past five years, and getting podium finishes in his first two Touring Car America races.

Our team has been consistently giving back to the racing community by coaching in QMA since 2014 and coaching at the SCCA driver school since 2017. However starting in 2020, Tommy McCarthy opened up to help support the motorsport aspirations of others.
