Dunbar Resigns

I wanted to personally announce to our industry my stepping down as co-owner of NADM. I have truly enjoyed my experience helping start NADM. But the reality is, it’s time I need to focus on my family’s well being, which means I need to obtain a job that has a paycheck attached to it :thumbsup, and find more time for my family with less time on the road.

I am not leaving the diesel industry. The DPM dyno will still continue as it has since 2003, doing as many events as we can. In fact, this will allow me to focus more time on the dyno, something I haven’t done a good job of since 2006. Outside of that, I need to prepare to get another job.

I have discussed with my partners the desire I have to see NADM continue on it’s path of growth. I have also expressed to them I would help in any way I can. I completely believe our industry needs an NADM to grow and I am proud to have been a part of this endeavor. I am also confident that if NADM is allowed to follow the business plan it was created from, it will enjoy years of success.

I’ll still be seeing many of you, still be online and still running the dyno. What I would like to see for the industry is support. We are in tough times for most everyone, but we have still managed to pull enough effort together to keep this sport alive. I believe NADM growing in not even two years shows true promise for our industry and develops a good expectation for the heights we can reach when our economy strengthens. If everyone does his or her part in these tough times, it lessons the pain for everyone trying to keep it going. What a great example our last event was of that.

So for those that made our A&A Auto Parts East Coast Nationals, you saw my last event as an official. I am so glad it was such a great event I could leave with. I appreciated everyone that was there, and knowing it was my last one before the event, it was even that much more special for me.

Sincerely,

David Dunbar

David thanks for all you have done for us, our habit and the diesel community. I'm sure this was not an easy decision for you. But like many have said best of luck to you and your family. :happymugs

NADM wants to say a big "Thank You" to Dave Dunbar for playing a big part in getting the business off the ground. We wish him well in his future endeavors. Dave still remains partial owner of NADM and his duties will be taken over in drag racing by Chuck Rucker of New Era Diesel. Chuck is a SFI certified tech and has helped NADM many different ways from the beginning.

Drag racing events will continue now and in the future with Chuck running the events! Sponsors remain the same with some new additions for next year (already) and a full schedule of events including affiliate events will be available before December 31!

New events along with some new added attractions for diesel motorsports are in the works for 2010.

We had a great turnout for the A&A NADM East Coast Nationals and we expect the same for upcoming drag races at Salt Lake City, August 7/8 and Sept 4/5 (Weekend on the Edge), Reynolds, GA Sept 12 and Dallas TX, (Crandall) Oct. 10 - along with sled pulling Sept 19, AirDog Indy Jamboree Invitational and Dallas Oct 10!
