Bio:

Dan made his first career sprint car start in 2015 at the Knoxville Raceway.

Though his single outing of 2015 was short, Dan would return as a driver owner in 2016. He finished only 90 points out from rookie of the year honors and garnering a Lyle Boyd Hard Charger award on the season and 11th in 305 points.

In 2017 Dan would pick up his first heat race win in the 305 class, and notably had replaced the valve springs and head gasket himself the night before the race. Two weeks later, an on track incident would halt the remainder of his 2017 season.

In 2018 Dan again raced weekly for points at Knoxville in the 305 division continuing to make progress. Mike Brooks, Dave Rodda and Knoxville Raceway HoF member Bob Brooks would also come aboard to help spin wrenches that season.

In 2019 Dan found himself on the outside looking for a 360 engine with restructuring of the 305 class. Scrimping and saving. Dan scraped up enough cash to lower a 360 between the rails and made his first start during the Knoxville 360 nationals qualifying 42nd out of 53 cars on his first ever qualifying attempt of 2019. Ahead of some very well named drivers and funded car owners.

Dan hopes to race for rookie honors in 2020, or as much as his small budget allows. Hopefully with the possibility to travel very limited with Sprint invaders.

Dan spent nearly 10 years successfully racing micro sprints and building wings for Outlaw dirt karts to 600cc Micro Sprints.
