Profile...
Dan's speedway career started in 2008 with Rye House Cobras after a successful junior programme and grasstrack meetings he lost interest in the sport due to personal reasons.
He got the urge to return in 2011 and worked 60 hours a week to get the money to buy his equipment. Later on in the season he travelled from his home in Chesterfield to Newport for some after meeting rides and was offered a team place which he took and rode 3 meetings for the Hornets.
Dudley swooped after Dan as a three pointer at the start of 2012. He had some good scores from reserve for the Heathens and moved up into the main body of the team in August. He continued picking up good scores to finish with an average of over six points per match.
He had done enough to earn a place with the Heathens in 2013 and was in the main body of the team at the start of the season gaining confidence every week but took a tumble and damaged his shoulder, he had a spell at reserve which soon built up his scores again and went back into the team proper. Swindon called upon Dan's services to cover for Darryl Ritchings in the Elite League team giving him the chance to gain experience at the higher level, and in mid May he was offered a place by Newcastle in their Premier League side and rode three meetings for them at reserve. Dan was also a big hit with the younger fans of the Heathens, always ready to help out with childrens parties and other activities with the Olle Ommer club.
2014 saw Dan move to Coventry Storm and he became a Coventry asset, he also had some rides in the Leicester Cubs team in the National Trophy.
Having raised his starting average by a point and a half he starts at Coventry Storm in 2015 vying for the number one spot with Luke Crang.
