The thrill of racing for Dave is the
victory, driving a Sprint car and friends that you meet racing.
His most exciting racing moment was meeting his wife at Warsaw Speedway,
driving for the first time and the last race. He's most proud of
coming from where he came from to where he is at today. It amazes
Dave and he is proud of it! He's proud of driving for great teams!
Dave's racing hero is his Dad.
They did a lot and all the Kinsers.
Of racing, Dave says, "It's a family
sport and a lot of family involvement. A lot of money is involved
but that is not why we do it. It's tough but we race for the love
of Sprint cars!".
