Jim Sills was a former NASCAR driver from Rio Linda, California. He competed in one Nextel Cup Series event in his career. That came in 1956, when Sills raced at Willow Springs Speedway. Starting 23rd in the thirty-seven car field, Sills had a good race, completing 76 of 80 laps in route to an 11th place finish. Tragically, Sills would die a few months later, perishing on September 6, 1956.
