 Damon Murty


Damon Murty drives the #99 Stock Class car.  His home track is Marshalltown Speedway but he can also be found racing at Southern Iowa Speedway and Benton County Speedway.  He lives in Chelsea, IA.

Team members helping Damon are:  Dawn and his 2 kids - Dallon and Dayna, Mort & Dixie, Brett, and anybody else that helps.  Dallon & Dayna Murty are the car owners.

Damon started racing in 1994 in the Hobby Stock Class at Marshalltown Speedway because his Uncle David Murty started because of their cousin Darrel Defrance as well as growing up with his cousins Gustins.  His first win was in '95 in the Hobby Stock Class at Marshalltown Speedway.  Career highlights include winning National Championship in Hobby Stock and Stock Car Class, '10 won 100th Feature win, won Stock Car Shootout in '06 and '10, '11 won Race of Champions at Boone Speedway.

The thrill of racing for Damon is winning.  His most exciting racing moment was his 100th win and this year starting in the 6th row at Marshalltown Speedway and getting a flat tire on the 1st lap, going to the tail and getting up to 8th and rear end flies out of car in front of him, coming to a complete stop and go to the tail again and end up winning!  He's most proud of all the accomplishments that have happened over the years!  That his family is able to join him everywhere he goes and all the different people he's met.

Damon's racing hero is Dale Earnhardt.

Of racing, Damon says, "That it is an expensive sport if you want to win!".
