Here is David’s post on Face Book re his announcement to retire. It is tough for me to know he won’t be back. I wanted him to race cars from the time he was a child. I am so proud of my son, he truly had an amazing career with over a dozen Championships, and well over 50 career feature wins. David will eventually be in both the Hobby (CVM) and Flamboro Speedway Hall of Fame, a well deserving honor for such a great racer.
I am officially retiring from racing. 2018 was great season to split the driving with my dad. I would like to take the time to thank all the people who have helped me starting with my mom Nonie Elliott and dad Gary Elliott, I couldn’t have raced without them supporting me for the last 18 years and letting me do what I love.
The crew…. I may miss a few from the past but I really appreciate everyone that took time out of there busy schedule to help me, Ed Askin, Brett Paveling, Peter Snook, Wendy Susan, Big Jim Hulzinga, Jim Sweers, Lisa Sweers, Will Morrison, Jonathon Robert Morrison, Dave Lewis, Shannon Scott-Lewis Mike Lewis, Jeff Searles, Dave Pereira, Bob Pereira, Kenny Stenhouse Jr., Kelly Hallettt. Gehrig Halliday Steffon Zoskey, Marty Hagen, Shirley Elliott, Lauren Halliday aka little bumble bee, Philbert Porcupine, Jeff Shaw , Dave Hennessey, Jeff Warnes, Ron Warnes Susan Bates Bill Hyslop, and many more. Without all these people and the sponsors I have had I could not have raced. Thanks to all the friends and fans I have made through racing.
