BIO:Spencer was introduced to racing at a young age, cheering his father in the IMSA GTP Championship. Later, itching to get behind the wheel himself, Pumpelly enrolled in the Skip Barber Racing School. Now, entering his 21st season of professional racing, he returns to TRG for the 2018 Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
Pumpelly is excited to get back to St. Pete after delivering a maiden win in GTS class at the street course in 2015. Known as one of the most talented drivers on the sportscar racing circuit, Spencer is no stranger to success with TRG. He began his six-year long relationship with TRG in 2006 and brought home an epic GT class (Pumpelly’s second) win at the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona in 2011 with the team. Pumpelly was a fixture on the podium during his stint with TRG: four top-three finishes in the Rolex 24, a second-place at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 2011, two six-hour victories and more than a dozen wins and many podiums across a variety of series including Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge, Grand-Am and American Le Mans. He also scored a podium in the NJMP ARCA NASCAR series.
Spencer enjoys spending time with his wife Lindsay, son Ryder, daughter Parker and counts running, ice hockey, playing guitar and flying helicopters among his many hobbies.
