My name is Devin O’Connell and I am passionate about racing.  I am currently 16 years old and a Junior in high school.  I have been racing since I was nine years old.  During the 2014 season, I will be racing in the Allison Legacy Touring Series, as well as, a 1934 Legend Coupe. 

Please visit and "Like" my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/devinoconnellracing or follow me on Twitter @_DevinOConnell.  By "liking" or following my page(S), you will be able to get trackside updates and comnents along with race day photos.  In addition, my new website is up and running at DevinOconnellRacing.com.  Feel free to fill out the "JOIN" page to help me build my fan base for future sponsorship opportunities. 

I first became interested in racing when I was a kindergarten student in Chatham, MA, and discovered a classmate raced go-karts.  When I discovered that kids could race karts, I was determined to get into the sport.  I had to be very persistent for several years in order to persuade my parents to let me try racing.

 

My father purchased my first kart when I was nine years old.  The kart had been sitting in someone’s garage for a couple years.  My dad and I showed up at our first race with the kart (on old tires), a utility trailer, a bicycle pump, and a Leatherman tool.   My first race proved to be very successful as I finished third in the 17-kart field.  By my fourth race ever, I was in victory lane.  I finished my first season with 3 wins, 10 top 3’s out of 18 races, and second in points.

  

The only crew I have ever had is my father and me.  We have had to learn the world of racing on our own bit by bit with the generous help of others and lots of reading.  Despite our limited knowledge, I have managed to achieve much success over the past seven years.  I have two karting championships, nearly 30 karting wins, and 12 top 3’s in an Allison Legacy racecar.  In addition, I have finished second in karting championships 4 times and I finished the 2013 season second in points in the Allison Legacy Touring Series.

 

My goal for the 2014 season is to continue racing in the Allison Legacy Touring Series.  In addition, I plan to do Legend car races at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Concord Speedway.  Although I have improved a lot during the 2013 season, I have realized, with the help of Donnie Allison, that I have some more learning to do.  I am also working to secure marketing partnership funding so that I can move up into bigger cars and bigger races.
