CONGRATS to ED LONG

1The January 28 thru March 4th SODA TAB CONTEST winner was Ed Long! He brought in almost 30 pounds of tabs. The total Dylan turned in this week to the Shriners Hospitals for Children - Tampa was just over 40 pounds. Ed has won before and asked that we give his Dylan Martin t-shirt to Miss Skyla! So Skyla, one of the three children that CARS Racing For A Cause is helping this year will get her very own Dylan t-shirt.

TODAY starts the next SODA TAB CONTEST. It will end on May 12th. The person to bring in the most tabs will win the choice of any DMR item they want....t-shirt, hat, or bag! Good luck and keep collecting the tabs. Thank you all!

Dylan is hosting another contest. Collect as many Soda Tabs as you can between March 12th and May 12th. Get them to Dylan by the end date of May 12th (2940 Drane Field Rd., Lakeland, FL 33811). The person turning in the most (by weight) will win a prize. These tabs are turned in to the Shriner Hospital which then turns them into money for the kids arts and crafts supplies. Help us help the kids!! Thanks for collecting Soda Tabs.

Bar-B-Q and Smiles

20150304_183817Terrie, Skyla’s grandmother, is usually the one hosting a benefit for cancer. This past Wednesday night was different for her though, she was able to sit back, enjoy some great food and music, and spend some time with her precious granddaughter. With gratitude she stated, “We REALLY appreciate Dylan, Kim and the CARS foundation for their support, compassion and all they are doing for us and for the CARS Kids and our community. Most of all thank you for your caring hearts. We are so grateful for your tireless giving of yourself for the kids. You are all a blessing to so many.”

Dylan was there to greet everyone that came out to support this great cause. A special thanks to The Nathan Baldwin Band with Joey Foley for entertaining the crowd for a couple hours with some home grown Southern music. Local businesses helped in supplying gifts to be raffled off. When the night ended and the gifts were given out, the band sang their last song and Smokin Jim’s delivered their last ribs, the money was counted and with everyone’s kind heart and loving spirit, $742 was raised for the kids.

It was a great night! Skyla and Maci were able to join us for the fun. Lucas unfortunately was not able to be there but we hope to see him at the next one. So grab a pen and mark your calendars, the next one will be April 8th, Wednesday. Dylan will have some great gifts to raffle off, The Nathan Baldwin Band will be there again and of course some of the best Bar-B-Q in the area. Hope to see you there.

Skyla, Maci, Lucas and Dylan thank you all for your time and effort given! THANK YOU!

Reeling in the Cure

20150221_103542The race track isn’t the only place where engine issues happen. Dylan and his big brother, Brandon, were going to fish in this year’s Curing Cancer Charity Cast Off Fishing Tournament. Unfortunately, the boat had other plans. After a couple hours of trying everything they could think of Dylan and Brandon hung up their fishing poles in defeat. That didn’t stop Dylan from coming out and spend time meeting the fishermen that did make the cast. The big fish award caught was over 10 pounds. Big fish, small fish and even no fish, there was still smiles on every person that walked across that stage during weigh in.

Dylan carried this logo for the tournament on his race truck in the 2014 season. It brought him luck on the track as it brought in money for the fight against cancer. “We appreciate Kim and Dylan coming out to support our Curing Cancer Charity Cast Off again this year. Although we had a bit of a chilly start, it shaped up to be a great day on the water, and more importantly, it shaped up to be a great day in the fight against cancer. This year’s effort raised $7,000 for the American Cancer Society, which will hopefully bring us 7,000 steps closer to a cure,” stated Donna Fellows, the foundation president.

NASCAR Rookie Seminar

20150218_102303Dylan was honored to be invited for the second time to the NASCAR Rookie Seminar. After arriving at the Daytona 500 Club and eating breakfast with all the rookie drivers from all the NASCAR series, Mike Helton welcomed all the drivers. This was followed with some discussion about the actual business and history of NASCAR. The drivers were then split up into 4 groups. These groups then rotated through the following topics: 1)Health and Wellness, 2)Financial Management, 3)Communication Techniques and 4) Social Media. Before lunch the rookies were gathered up once again to listen to some insight from former Rookie of the Year, Mike Skinner and Kyle Larson.

The drivers had time to mingle while they ate lunch. It was interesting to hear some of the stories of where they came from and what got them into racing. After lunch, Ken Ungar was introduced to talk about his book, “How to Stay Ahead of the Game”. He explained about what it is to build your brand but also how quickly you can destroy it. It is obvious that NASCAR believes in his theory and ideas because every rookie left with their own copy of the book. It is no surprise why NASCAR is the number one watched sport. To see the energy put into making sure these rookies succeed was incredible. A lot of talent walked out of that seminar with more knowledge and confidence to make it in the racing industry.

Getting Back to the Roots

20150214_160935It is amazing where a driver may find himself during the off season. Dylan was thankful when Cody Johnson offered him a chance to drive his Box Stock Heavy Kart this past weekend. While most where out with their love celebrating Valentine’s Day, this young driver was out doing what he loves, racing. It was a very cold night but the heat these karts were laying down was intense.

Dylan got to practice the kart in a couple sessions. It didn’t take him long to find where not to run on this dirt track. After spinning the kart out, he found the limit to his kart. Dylan’s friend Christina McDuffie was there to give him a few pointers about the track. It was then time for his Heat race. Dylan would be starting 7th out of 7 karts. The karts are lined up single file to take the green. The green flag drops and Dylan is on the move. Within the first lap he passes #58 on the inside, taking over the 6th position. He then starts to catch the kart in front of him. A couple laps later, Dylan in his #7 kart finds himself getting loose coming out of turn 4 but is able to save it. When the checker flag drops on lap 10, Dylan finishes 6th.

After each time the kart goes on the track, Dylan and Cody’s crew have to take off the tires. The tires get washed, dried and a special ingredient gets put on them..shhhh it is a secret. It is then Feature time. Dylan lines up single file for the start of the 20 lap race. He is starting 11th out of 15 karts. The green flag flies and Dylan dives off into turn 1 way too fast and slides way up the track, dropping him back to 15th. Lap 2 the first caution is out. He will restart 14th. Dylan gets a kart on the restart but the next turn goes in to hard and loses the spot. A couple laps later, he passes #8 on the inside. Second caution flags comes out and Dylan restarts 13th.

Dylan and the #8 find themselves in a race of their own. The battle back and forth for position for 5 laps. The #8 gives Dylan a love tap going into turn 1 but Dylan holds the position. A lap later though, the #8 gets by him. Caution flag comes out again, but this time Dylan gets the #8 on the restart. A lap later he gets back under Dylan. These two karts battle it out until Dylan gets loose coming out of turn 4. The checker flag drops with Dylan in 11th place. As Dylan helps push the kart back to the pits, he is all smiles. “Worth spending my Valentine’s Day at the track and appreciate Cody letting me drive his kart, I had a blast”, Dylan stated.
