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, Howie continued his ARCA relationship with AM Racing (formerly Win-Tron Racing) and crew chief Jamie Jones competing at Daytona International Speedway.
In April, Howie made his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at Richmond Raceway with Jordan Anderson Racing. Since then, he has continued to compete with the team making starts at Texas Motor Speedway and “The Tricky Triangle”, Pocono Raceway.
Howie is thankful for everyone who has helped make these opportunities a reality and looks forward to further improving his skills behind the wheel of a truck this season.
