Daryl Hameetman grew up like any other kid in Ft. Myers, Florida. He played in the dirt, ran around outside, and even cleaned up the house when asked. But his average child- hood stopped when Daryl attended his first drag race at the tender age of 12. Two years later, the Nova chronicles began. What started as a way for a father and son to spend quality time together quickly turned into more than just a joint venture.

We first met up with Daryl during last year’s NMCA World Finals in Commerce, Georgia. We also found out that this ’71 Nova has earned its fair share of prizes including Best of Show. But the story doesn’t end here. Daryl is further enhancing his passion for wrenching at the School of Automotive Machinists in Houston, Texas, which caters to those who want a career in the high-performance and racing industries. It all sounds promising, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store.
