Howie DiSavino is living a childhood dream
A pair of free tickets. That’s what started Howie DiSavino’s love for racing at the tender age of 8 years old. After his dad took him to an Arena Racing show in the Richmond area with those tickets, young Howie begged the family for a racecar.
Finally, at age 13, he got his wish. He and his family spent a pair of years racing the arena circuit before making the massive jump to full-fledged late models just two years later. Since then, he has grown as a driver and a person, contributing to his race team and his community through racing as an avenue for charitable giving while also building business relationships with his partners and supporters.
In 2019, Howie took another step toward his NASCAR dreams, making his ARCA debut with WinTron Racing. He captured a top ten finish, a strong accomplishment for any rookie making the jump to a national level series.
Howie’s success in his ARCA starts led to WinTron Racing offering him a ride in both their NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (formerly Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series) and ARCA Menards Series entries for multiple races during the 2020 season. Though his season was compressed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Howie earned a career-best 9th place finish in the ARCA Series. To keep his skills fresh, he also ran multiple pro late model races with WAR Racing.
To kick off the 2021 season, DiSavino continues his ARCA relationship with Win-Tron Racing and crew chief Jamie Jones, but during the offseason – Win-Tron Racing was absorbed under the AM Racing banner which offers the opportunity for both organizations to expand their horizons. Additional details about Howie’s 2021 season will be forthcoming.
