David McManus, originally from Clio, currently lives in Eaton Rapids, and has been racing for more than 15 years. His dad, Darrell McManus was a racer, so David grew up around the track. An experienced Super Late Model driver, David just started competing in Top Speed Modified events this year. Although he currently drives a vehicle with the number 20, he plans eventually to repaint his car and return to the familiar #7. David decided to focus on Top Speed Modified events because the cars are a little less expensive to build and operate, not surprising for someone who works as a financial analyst, handling food service contracts for the Michigan Department of Corrections. When he’s not in the office or on the track, David spends most of his time under his race car, making sure it is ready for the next race. He also enjoys camping in the great outdoors when he can find the time.
