 Darrell DeFrance


Darrell DeFrance drives the #99D Late Model Class car.  His home track is Iowa State Fair Speedway but he can also be found racing at Hamilton County Speedway.  He lives in Marshalltown, IA.

Team members helping Darrell are:  Dale DeFrance, Dave Flanagan, Kim Hartwig, Dave Barber, Bob Maschmann, Dave Cristensen.  DeFrance Racing is the car owner.

Darrell started racing in 1976 in the Street Stock Class at Marshalltown Speedway because his Dad and uncles raced and his Mom says his Dad brainwashed him.  His first win was in 1977 in the Street Stock Class at Boone Speedway.  Career highlights include first Deery Race at Burlington, '92 Super Nationals, 18 Track Championships and winner of the 2005 Super Nationals.

The thrill of racing for Darrell is the adrenaline rush, the competition, and the camaraderie.  His most exciting racing moment was winning the National Championship.  He's most proud of several guys that are helping and have been with Darrell from the beginning and the respect he gets from other people.

Darrell's racing hero is his Dad, Dale.

Of racing, Darrell says, "It's great sport.  What a family sport!  Dedication and hard work!".
