Turning nineteen in 2015, Dakota is no stranger to racing’s grueling challenge. Dakota is a second generation driver and began his racing career at age eight, the same year he won his first race in a borrowed car and a borrowed engine on his fourth time out! Dakota recorded over twenty feature victories in the Outlaw Dirt Kart ranks before making his sprint car debut in 2012 at Knoxville Raceway.
In his rookie campaign in the 305 class, Dakota showed steady improvement, earning a sixth place standing at season’s end. He moved up to the 410 class in 2013, finishing 19th in points. He climbed two more spots in 2014, and plans on combining forces with California car owner Harley Van Dyke in 2015, with an aim towards both the National Sprint League and the Knoxville Championship Cup Series.
