Sunset Speedway is now a Proud Partner with NASCAR
Our Drivers and Crew
I have grown up all around racing. My dad, two uncles, and my Grandpa raced cars. When I was seven I started racing go-karts. Over the past three years I have been racing at Sunset and in the 2016 season we had our most successful year. This year we will be racing the number 67 Super Stock at Sunset Speedway.
Derrick has raced Oscaar Super Late Models since 2007, the same year he won the Championship. He travels to several tracks a year around Ontario. He drives the white #7 car sponsored by Wayfreight.
Steve is the main reason Gerrit is able to race. He is Gerrit's mechanic, sponsor, and chauffeur. He used to race Late Models until Gerrit started racing Go-karts. He helps Derrick out too sometimes when he needs it, but willl be focused on the Superstock this year. Steve is married to Cindy, and they are parents to Gerrit, and his little sister, Jessica.
Siebe is Derrick's, Tony's, and Steve's dad. After his sons started to race, he got into it a little bit as well. Eventually he left racing after just being in it for a little while, but it was to help out his kids race. Siebe is the main reason Derrick's car shows up to the race with straight panels. Throughout the week he will fix the dents and rubber marks from the previous race.
Tony, the youngest of the three brothers, never raced seriously for points, but did help Steve when they ran Alstar. Tony was Steve's Spotter, and Tire Specialist. When the Alstar Series closed in, he ran select races sharing the seat with his dad, Siebe. Although Tony never ran for points, he was always a competitor and a front runner.
