Racers from the Northeast don’t come anymore tough determined or versatile as that of Danny Bohn. The New Jersey born and bred racer possesses the uncanny ability to jump in a race car on either pavement or dirt, and be fast…really fast.
That sixth sense has enabled Danny to quickly adapt to the world of stock car racing down South where he has continued his family lineage in auto racing.
Danny’s grandfather, Parker Bohn, was a legendary driver from NJ recognized for racing a triple digit numbered race car “659.” Danny’s father Eddie Bohn followed soon after, racing sportsman and modified cars that he built himself and drove to nearly 100 feature wins. Today, Danny and his brothers Andrew and Michael carry on the family tradition of building and racing cars.
Danny’s path has taken him to NASCAR’s Whelen Southern Modified Tour, where he earned 2012 “Rookie of the Year” honors by finishing an impressive second in the driver standings. Not only is Danny a threat to win every night on the tour, but he draws a crowd, having been voted Most Popular Driver on the circuit.
Danny got an early start by racing Bandoleros and Modifieds back home in NJ and winning track championships in each class at hallowed Wall Stadium in New Jersey, where his grandfather, father, and long-time family friend and NASCAR crew chief legend Ray Evernham raced.
Upon moving to North Carolina in 2008 to work for Ray, Danny continued his championship form, taking the modified track championship in his very first year racing on dirt at East Lincoln
