Don Droud Jr. returns with legendary car owner Gil Sonner. In 2010, Don led the point standings for much of the season, recorded a pair of wins, and finished second in the point standings for the fourth time in his career. The likable driver also won the "Sportsman of the Year" Award for the second time (the first was in 2002).
Don's career has spanned three decades, and he boasts over 75 wins in that time. Don has won with the wing and without, in 360 and 410 sprint cars, and in midgets.
Don was the first man to record a lap here under fifteen seconds and held the Knoxville one-lap track record for almost seven years (1998-2005) at 14.934.
