Bobby Durnell drives the #18D Non Wing Class car.  His home track is Coles County Speedway.  He lives in Catlin, IL.

Team members helping Bobby are:  Dad, Billy and Earl.  Richard Durnell is the car owner.

Bobby started racing in 2004 in the Purple Go Cart Class at Bi-State Speedway because his Dad got him into it.  His first win was that same year.  Career highlights include 2-3 Track Championships, over the years racing Go Karts he has raced in Purple, Turquoise, Gold and Unrestricted, several wins, his first year he started in a Micro Sprint which was the most exciting thing yet.

The thrill of racing for Bobby is you can't explain the feeling you get when you wake up on race day.  Just the horsepower under your boot is unbelievable.   His most exciting racing moment was every time he makes that last move to make it or break it, it's all worth it if it's for the lead.  He's most proud of all the wins he has and just getting to spend time with his Dad.

Bobby's racing hero is Steve Kinser.

Of racing, Bobby says, "That there's no other feeling and once you start there is no turning back!".
