Dan raced for the first time at Florence Speedway on Saturday May 31st in their 28th Annual Ralph Latham Memorial. Fans from all over filled the stands to watch the Modifieds and Lucas Oil Late Model's. Dan started 9th in heat #1 and with only 8 laps coming from the tail he won the heat! Feature time came, track conditions were slick and constantly changing. Dan started on the pole of the 20 lap feature, after battling through lap traffic he finished 2nd!
On May 26th, Dan raced at the 3/8 mile high banked clay oval - Lawrenceburg Speedway for the first time. It was bound to be an awesome night of racing with the UMP Modifieds and the World of Outlaw Sprint Cars. There was no modified qualifying. Our pill draw placed Dan 3rd row inside of the 4th heat. After a few cautions, Dan worked his way from 5th to 1st and placed himself in the ring to re-draw for the feature. The modified main was stacked with top talent, Lawrenceburg track champion - Matt Hamilton and two-time UMP modified champion - Devin Gilpin. Starting 7th of the 25 lap feature, Dan worked his way to 4th when the checkers flew! "The track was banked and fast. Had a blast and learned a ton!" said Dan.
Thank you to all sponsors and fans!

Dan raced at Southern Ohio Speedway for the first time tonight. He qualified second fastest overall and started pole of his heat where he maintained his position to the checkers. Feature time the track was hooked up and rutty. After a battle between the top three, Dan finished second in the feature. It was a great night of racing a new track!
Dan's 2014 race season started out on the right foot. Last night team #60 traveled to 201 Speedway in Sitka, KY where they were hosting their first ever World Of Outlaw Late Model special followed by Modifieds and 4 cylinders. The stands were packed! 201 Speedway said "although gates don't officially open til 3pm fans started parking their cars at about 8:30 this morning." The modified count was just as good and the competition was even better. Dan was eager to get his Impressive race car on the dirt. He went on to dominate his heat race and earn himself a outside pole starting position in the feature. Off the first green light of the feature Dan was nose to nose with 2 other drivers. Immediately Dan went to the top line and continued to drive himself to the front and sail through the checkers to take home his first win of the year!
Thank you to all sponsors and fans for the continued support.
