Donnie started racing in 1978 in the Street
Division at Lancaster Motor Speedway and I-77 Speedway because it was his
Dad's dream to see Donnie reace. Career highlights include his
first race when he was 14 years old and finished 4th. That was 24 years ago and he has now
started racing again in Pure Street.
The thrill of racing for Donnie is the
speed. His most exciting racing moment was his first Heat race win. He's most proud that he's
always kept his family and church first and racing second. His wife,
Darla and son, Buck, are always with him.
Donnie's racing heroes are Tim Richmond
and Dale Earnhardt.
Of racing, Donnie says, "You better
have a lot of money and a lot of people to give it to ya!".
