Name: Dave Detlefsen
Years on Track: 13
Been hooked on motorcycles for a long time now. Started in the dirt as
a kid and then toured all over the United States in the years after
college...rode in every state except AK and HI. A move to Arkansas and
it's great twisties lead to sportbikes and soon enough to the race
track. Endurance raced in the CMRA until a get off almost ended all
motorcycling. Even after a serious back injury, I couldn't stay away
from the race track and rebuilt my RC51 in the two weeks following my
crash so I could get it to Barber for a friend to ride. And in October,
just 6 months after surgery, got back to Barber for my first post crash
trackday. It took a long time to learn to go "fast" (note the
quotation marks!) again and continue to learn every time out.
This is my second year with X-Act. I'm on a Triumph 675 named Squash
and I look forward to meeting and riding with you on the track!

Years racing: 8th season
I've been a long time motorsports enthusiast
and am a 4th generation rider. Before my 18th birthday, I had competed in
SCCA autocross, attended Skip Barber Driving School, and lapped the
Nuerburgring. In college, I was heavily involved with the Formula SAE
team at Georgia Tech, both building and driving. Any automotive interest
took a back-seat when I bought my first bike in the spring of 2003. By
the fall of 2004, I did my first trackday at little Talladega. I started
racing with WERA in 2006, and turned expert after the 2007 season. Since
then, I have raced a number of bikes, mostly in the lightweight twins, D, and
Clubman classes. This season I'll be competing in the WERA endurance
series. At trackdays, you will normally find me riding an R6 or SV650,
although I enjoy everything from training on an XR100 to riding the latest
