Don O'Neal: Appliance Zone $70,000 2011 sponsorship candidate

Appliance Zone is offering a $70,000 sponsorship to a group of 5 drivers.  Today I am highlighting the driver of the Independence Lumber, Jones Core, Superior Cleaning Services, O'Neal Mulch, Jay Dickens powered Mastersbuilt house car  #71 of "The Real Deal" Don O'Neal from Martinsville, Indiana.
  Don has ran with the Lucas Oil Late Model Series full time the last couple of years, but he is well known to many in the Dirt Late Model world before.  He has made a name for himself in the Midwest.  Don was the 2004 UMP Summernationals champion.  He has a total of 38 career UMP Summernationals feature wins, including 3 this season.  Don has won numerous big races including events at the DART Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida , the Jackson 100, Hoosier Dirt Classic, Kenny Simpson Memorial, and Indiana Icebreaker, all ran at Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana.  His biggest payday came when he won the 2003 Dixie Shootout.  The win was worth $55,000 to O'Neal.

Don is a single father of 2 boys, Huston (15) and Husdon (9).  That is a hard thing for any parent to do.  How Don does it and remains a competitive Dirt Late Model driver is something is amazing.  To vote for Don, first go to then register to vote.  Then be sure to vote.
