Dave started like everyone else did trail wheeling, from that he started going to mud bogs , some of the first mud races were held at a little town out by Drayton Valley called Warburg. He helped with the start up of AMBA Alberta Mud Bog Association. After that he built one of the first Mega / Monster trucks in western Canada, it was called Alberta Crude. He got out of wheelin’ for a few years, then decided he wanted to get back into it & that's when he started to build Road Kill. It was originally to be a trail rig, not a comp rig ( not to many comp rigs have 5 seats ), but Dave started entering competitions with it and did well so he decided to throw his name in the hat for TTC, never got in the first year so he tried again & got voted in in 2009, Dave won that year & got invited back In 2012 for TTCC (Top Truck Challenge Champions) ...won that (only guy in the world to win TTC twice).
Dave has been competing in off-road events since they first invented off-road tires he also competed in events such as the Safari Tough Trail Challenge, many Highrider Challenges, along with Havoc Events. The Rig Dave is most known for, is his Cummins powered tube buggy named Road Kill. The buggy was sold in 2013 as Dave has taken on a new build, also focusing heavily on the organizational side of local events, along with the creation of the OTTA organization.
