Developed his love for drag racing in the early 1960's. He bought a 1968 Chev Camaro, drove it on the street for 2 weeks then it was off to the Drags. His car was known as the "Invader". Dave built his own engines and was meticulous.

Daves personal motto: "Help out others in any way he could, to keep racers racing".
