We had the great pleasure of getting to know Dave Darland in the years he drove for the Nine Racing USAC Midget team. Dave is one of those racers who puts the ‘hero’ in Saturday Night heroes. He’s a man of few words. He doesn’t boast. He just goes out and gets it done. A great athlete, who’s still cranking out wins.
He’s won all the top USAC Awards: Silver Crown Champion (1997), National Sprint Car Series Champion (1999)) and National Midget Series Champion (2001 and 2002)
It’s fun to go over the weekend’s race reports and see Dave took another checkered flag. He won Saturday night’s race at Lincoln Park Speeway, Putnamville, Indiana, in a dramatic final lap pass, and a win that was measured in inches.
As the headline read on the Lincoln Park Speeway website, “Dave Darland, last lap, last turn, again!”
Congratulations to the great Dave Darland on an incredible career…and one more feature victory.
