is an Ohio native who grew up just miles from Dragway 42. His passion for drag racing began in 1977 at the age of 16 shortly after he acquired a drivers license. Borrowing his fathers car, he headed to Dragway 42 and took his first win in the street class and brought home his first trophy. For the next 39 yrs, he has raced anything from cars, pickup trucks to motorcycles. Currently, Daryl owns and drive a injected SBC powered 1923 Ford Model T Altered dragster running 8.60’s @ 148mph.
Daryl and his wife Heidi own and operate Classy Carts LLC, a Golf Cart service and repair business out of Wooster Ohio. Where his love for drag racing inspired him to build the world only wheelstanding golf cart called “Slightly Disturbed”. He has exhibition raced the cart in shows for tracks around Ohio and for IHRA. He also builds a custom crafted cart in the likes of a Peterbilt semi truck, called the Classybilt “Little Pete”.
When Daryl isn't cruising the pits at a drag strip, he enjoys the outdoors with camping, fishing and hunting.
Heidi followed in her dad's footsteps with a love for automobiles and growing up around cars & trucks. She attended her first drag race about 30 years ago and fell in love immediately! She and her husband have a 23T altered that they race throughout the year when not crewing for Solid Rock. Although Heidi has never driven a race car, she hopes to some day have her very own muscle car...or would also settle for a new Challenger! Heidi is also an animal lover and enjoys making cards, stamping, reading, walking and spending time with family and friends.
