Don started racing in 1985 in the Modified Class at Belle-Clair Speedway as a 3rd generation driver.   His first win was that same year.  Career highlights include racing over 27 years, having had lots of good fun and still going.

The thrill of racing for Don is going fast.  His most exciting racing moment was starting last and winning the Feature in Godfrey on last lap of last night of track!  He's most proud of the support from family and friends.

Don's racing hero is his Dad.

Of racing, Don says, "Costs a lot...."If you're not first, you're last!".
