The End

Damion came to Perris the first time with winning on his mind. After a few races, he beat the top 3 CRA drivers in a trophy dash, and passed a couple more than once in the effort. One of the strong drivers who he beat said over the PA "he can't do that for 30 laps, can he"? It turns out he sure could as he now has 90 ( as of 8/10/18)CRA victories that include 3 Oval Nationals, 4 firecracker July 4th races, including a hat trick of one 30 lapper, two 40 lappers and a 50 lapper, probably the only one to ever do it! Add The Glenn Howard Memorial, 2 Salute to Indy's, a Sokola Classic, The Don Flanders Classic and a Dick Vermeil Classic as well. He won the Chili Bowl to put a capper on all these wins, so he is very successful and continues to be so to this day. All he needs is 20 more wins to take the all time lead from Dean Thompson's legendary career. Damion is focused on winning and spends all his time preparing to do that. In addtion he is the 7 time CRA champion! He also, in his spare time, set the salt flat record for a sprint car at over 211 MPH.
