Darrell McDowell drives the #22 Crate Late Model Class car.  His home track is Granite City Speedway and Highland Speedway.  He lives in Highland, IL.

Team members helping Darrell are:  Andrea - wife, Uncle John Deimer helped with car and trailer, Father-in-law, Butch Lockbey helped build trailer, KBC Graphix.  Darrell and Andrea McDowell are the car owners.

Darrell started racing in 2007 in the Hornets Class and then Mods at Clay County Speedway because his Uncle raced and he went to the races with him as a young boy.  His first win was that same year.  Career highlights include his 1st time in a Modified and Hornet Feature.

The thrill of racing for Darrell is everything including the competition.  His most exciting racing moment was starting last at Haubstadt and finishing 5th in a major show.  He's most proud that they pay for everything and work on the car through the week.  Darrell will do anything to race.

Darrell's racng heroes are his Uncle John Deimer and A J Foyt.

Of racing, Darrell says, "It's a great family sport that may make you want to pull your hair out but at the end of the day, it's impossible not to love!".
