David Arnold

Big Flats NY

In 1965, at his first daily newspaper job in Dover, Ohio, Dave wrote a weekly column on auto racing. He was soon lured by the Dover newspaper’s sister paper in Mansfield, Ohio where his managing editor wanted expanded coverage of Mid-Ohio’s races. He left the newspaper in 1970 to accept the Public Relations position at Mid-Ohio, where he stayed until he was hired by Firestone Racing in 1984 to handle the media relations for the new Firestone Firehawk Endurance Championship. He followed that series and its successors until the end of Street Stock racing in 2000. He has covered almost 500 races in his career, including more than 25 working trips to the SCCA Runoffs between 1969-2007.
