David started racing in 1999 in the Bomber
Class at 281 Speedway because he was interested in auto motors, setups,
and his wife dared him. His first win was in 2006 in the Hot Stock Class
at 281 Speedway. Career highlights include 2004 Hobby Stock Class 8th in
points at 281 Speedway, 2005 Hot Stock Class 4th in points at 281
Speedway, and 2006 Hot Stock Class 2nd in points at 281 Speedway.
The thrill or racing for David is living
in the moment with all problems left behind. His most exciting moment was
in 2006, when he won the "A" Feature in Hot Stock Class by holding off
Duane Pritchett. He is most proud of seeing his wife's smile when he
finishes a good race, and the support she gives him.
David's racing hero is Richard Petty.
Of racing, David says, "You don't always
have to win! Just do your best! Don't get discouraged because of set
backs! The crowd is #1, be an entertainer!"
