Circle Track Editor Rob Fisher takes to Showtime Speedway in Clearwater, Florida with Dalton Zehr, 2013 ASA National Champion, providing instruction to Reagan May (Super Late Model racer) and little Robert Fisher (future Super Late Model racer).

Dalton Zehr, 23, has taken the racing world by storm, getting behind the wheel of a dirt-wing car (box stock) at just 7 years old. Dalton has accomplished more than most drivers would even hope to winning 17 out of 26 races in his first year alone. Dalton raced Super Late Models by the age 11, by far the youngest participant there. He then went on to win his first ProTruck race, and soon after he won Super Late Model Race and competed in every series that he could, even Super Modified. Check out more of his accomplishments here.

“Today is all about developing skills with up-and-coming drivers, and the first thing we are going to do is walk the track and try to determine lift points and markers to be looking for to really get your bearings on the track,” Dalton says.

While Robert may be new behind the wheel, he is no stranger to momentum and competition having raced BMX for about six years. Reagan, on the other hand, has already accumulated some track time starting out with go-karts and excelled from there. She raced dirt for one year, started racing Super Late Models at fifteen years old and is now in her fifth season.

Dalton shows his skills behind the wheel of the truck first performing a maneuver called the “modified line” for the other drivers. Reagan takes her first spin in the truck showing some skill out on the track where she seemed to thoroughly enjoy her first experience.

Next, it is Robert’s turn and he gets some instructions from Dalton before taking to the wheel. By the end of the day he had shaved two full seconds off of his previous lap time. After two more training sessions with Dalton, Robert will take on his first race.
