 Derek Neville


Derek Neville drives the #33D UMP Modified Class car.  His home track is Farmer City Raceway but he can also be found racing at Fairbury Speedway and Spoon River Speedway.  He lives in Mackinaw, IL.

Team members helping Derek are:  Jamie Neville, Nick Neville, Ben & Tres Neville, Brock Jones, Gary Cook Sr. and Gary Cook Jr.  Jamie Neville is the car owner.

Derek started racing in 1997 in the Sr. Honda Quarter Midgets Class at Abe Lincoln Quarter Midget Track because his Dad was a Crew Chief on ASA cars and wanted the boys to get started in racing.  Derek's first win was that same year.  Career highlights include 2000 Mini Indy Points Champion in Quarter Midgets, 2005 finished 4th in the Points at Farmer City Speedway in Modifieds, inducted into the Mini Indy Hall of Fame in 2005.

The thrill of racing for Derek is the excitement of never knowing what is going to happen at any given second.  His most exciting racing moment was the first couple of laps the first time he was ever in a race car.  He's most proud of his induction into the Mini Indy Hall of Fame, winning the 2000 Mini Indy Points Championship.

Derek's racing hero is Dale Earnhardt Jr. or Jeff Gordon.

Of racing, Derek says, "You must be very dedicated to do well when racing but when you do well, everybody knows it!".
