Finished P1 and P3 at Dominion Raceway in the Twin 60s event.
Daniel's passion for racing started at 3 years old while viewing his first NASCAR race on TV with his father. As his dad likes to say, "Daniel was hooked from that moment." At 6 1/2 years old Daniel was finally tall enough to jump into his first competitive go-kart at Allsports Grand Prix. Over the years Daniel has achieved success in go-karts, INEX Bandolero Series and the INEX Legend Series, winning multiple championships along the way. When not at the tracks, he can be found on iRacing competing with friends and other drivers as well as participating in various sporting events. He continues to enjoy watching NASCAR, football and baseball. His favorite new driver is Daniel Hemric and his favorite sports teams are the Philadelphia Eagles and Phillies.
Daniel was finally tall enough to jump into his first competitive go-kart at 6 1/2 years old (He needed all that extra padding to reach the pedals) Allsports Grand Prix, located in Northern Virginia was such an amazing facility to start his racing experience. His first instructor was Ryan Ellis, current Xfinity driver. Great memories!
In 2012, Daniel began competing in the Allsports Kids League never placing below 3rd in any season.
Sadly in 2015 Allsports Grand Prix closed down which opened the door for Daniel's next chapter, INEX Series Bandolero Racing.
Bando...what? Yeah, that was our first response to hearing about INEX Series racing. With the closing of Allsports, it was time to take our driving to the outdoor tracks. We raced at Shenandoah Speedway and Southside Speedway. Daniel and crew (i.e. Dad), with the help of fellow competitors learned the ropes on taking care of and setting up the Bandolero car. These cars run a Briggs & Stratton 30 HP engine which can reach 70 MPH on some tracks. It took us a year to adjust and in 2016 things really took off.
After two years in the Bandolero Series and finishing with a successful season, Daniel moved up to the more powerful Legend Car Young Lion Series. These cars are FAST. Weighing just over 1300 lbs and powered by a Yahama 1250cc engine producing 140+ HP, these cars are just awesome to watch. They are one of the hardest cars to drive due to the HP-to-Weight ratio as well as the short wheelbase. Daniel jump into the car and immediately showcased his abilities at the 2017 INEX Winter Nationals as well as various other venues.
After two highly successful years with INEX Legend cars, Daniel jumped up to the NASCAR Weekly Late Model Series competing against some of the best drivers throughout Virginia and North Carolina. Daniel competed in 12 races at South Boston and finished with 6 Top 5s and 8 Top 10s racing under the Sellers-Burton Racing Team.
Competing at Dominion Raceway and Langley Speedway Daniel's goal is to improve on his limited Rookie Season from 2019. So far this year Daniel has won his first Late Model Race and multiple Poles in qualifying.
In 2021 Daniel jumped up to the CARS Tour touring series presented by Solid Rock Carriers. This Series travels to tracks in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
