David started racing in 2006 in the
Hobby Stock class at Beebe Speedway because he grew up around it and he
started going with Jim Taylor. Career highlights include racing
the Dale Murphy Memorial at Fast Trax Speedway, first Modified Heat win
at Augusta in '08 and finished in the Top 3 at the Firecracker 30 at
CCSS in '09.
The thrill of racing for David is the
adrenaline rush and it's fun. His most exciting racing moment was
his first Heat win in Modified passing Jeff Taylor in '08 at Augusta.
He's most proud of how far he's come in such a short amount of time.
David's racing hero is Jim Taylor.
Of racing, David says, "There's more to
racing than just a bunch of rednecks playing in the dirt!".
