Racing is truly a family sport for watercraft racer Renee Hill, and this season Hill's K&N powered team is taking it to the next level.

Renee Hill is already a world-class watercraft racer, and her 16-year-old son, Tyler, was twice a runner-up at the World Finals in 2012. But Renee Hill added a third craft for her 18-year-old daughter, Kendall, this year, and the results were impressive.

At the 2013 ISJBA Jettribe West Coast Series Lake Perris Open, Kendall took home the win in the Beginner Sport Spec class. It was just Kendall's second race. Tyler also finished on the podium, placing third in the ultra-competitive Sport Spec class, a division he finished second in at the World Finals last year.

"Jeff (Renee's husband) and I are both proud parents," Renee said.

But the weekend wasn't all about the kids. Renee Hill overcame some adversity herself to capture the first win of 2013. After appearing to finish second in Moto 1, Hill was penalized and placed in fourth.

"After being docked a lap in the first moto, I didn't think I had a chance to win the overall," Renee said. "I couldn't hold my line on the start because a younger racer moved into my lane, so I moved over too. At the end of the race, we were both penalized."

Renee Hill entered Moto 2 focusing solely on taking home a win and salvaging some good from the weekend. She was surprised yet again at the end of the race, but this time, good news was in store.

"I thought I had taken second," Hill said. "But to my surprise, I had won the moto, and finished first overall too."

Even more surprising about the win was Renee Hill's ability to keep the boat running after an early collision.

"I don't know how I was able to hold onto the boat," Hill said. "When the race ended, I looked at the side and it had a huge crack down it. I'm just glad old red was able to keep running and get me that win."

Hill's husband, Jeff, is already hard at work preparing the family boats for the next race, August 17th at Lake Perris. It will be the final tune-up before the World Finals in Lake Havasu, Arizona, Renee Hill is looking for some payback after mechanical issues prevented her from winning either of her two classes at last year's event.

Jeff is a well-known mechanic and builder of stock and limited boats, engineering some of the fastest boats in the world for riders from as far away as Kuwait and New Zealand.

"Many of Jeff's racers have taken world championships while being powered by K&N Filters," Renee Hill said. "We have huge success with them, and they power more than just our boats. We use K&N on our Ford truck, quads and our Harley Davidson motorcycles as well."
