Mark Claeys drives the #55 Street Stock Class car. He lives in Dixon, Iowa. His home track is Davenport Speedway but he can also be found racing at Jackson County, Tipton and Q. C. Speedways.

He began racing in 1991 in Bomber Class at East Moline Speedway because his Father raced and Mark was addicted to it and his dad got him started. His first win was in  1991 in bomber Class At East Moline Speedway. Career highlights include, Raced bomber for 2 years and moved up to Pro Stock. Ran Pro Stock from 1993-1998. Best Pro Stock year was 1995. Had 30 starts 25 Top 3, 28 Top 5's, all Top 10 finishes and 18 wins. Won 9 Pro Stock Feature Events including 1998 Season Opener and Fair Race.

The thrill of racing for Mark is putting on a fantastic show for the fans on the high side of any race track. His most exciting racing moment was winning the 2003 Street Stock 50 and back to back 25 Lappers in 2002 on home built leaf springs and being the only leaf spring car out there, (at Davenport).

Mark is most proud of helping two other guys driving a 50 Lappers at Davenport loaning them parts and one finished 5th and the other 10th. Putting a smile on all the kids faces that asked for autographs, and visiting with them and putting them in the car.

His racing heroes are David Pearson and Cale Yarborough.

Of racing, Mark says, "Just like any other sport, it takes dedication and money. But has a lot of satisfaction when you work hard for what you want."  Mark would also like to thank his Sponsors
