DuroByte Motorsports, based in Corunna, Michigan, was officially formed in 2012 with the intention of developing the talents of its up and coming two young drivers, sister and brother duo, Dominique and Tristan Van Wieringen. The team, however, was years in the making.
Owner, Murray VanWieringen went to great lengths to secure key people to build the team. Jimmy D Smith was brought on from the beginning as the crew chief and overall team manager. He has a lifetime of racing experience which he passes on to the drivers he works with. Prior to joining DuroByte Motorsports Jimmy had the privilege of developing one of the fastest rising stars in Nascar, Erik Jones.
Other key members of our team are Brian Warnaar, car chief, who has also been with DuroByte Motorsports from the beginning. Brian is a very dedicated and hard working individual. His skill level in all he does on the cars has become a great asset to this team. Amanda Smith has recently come on board as our Data Technician. We are constantly improving our resources to keep up with the latest technology. Bill Nalett is both an associate sponsor of the team as well as the transport driver.
We focus on providing our drivers with a good foundation and experience to move them up the ranks of racing. We pride ourselves on our equipment and success at the track. We strive for a very professional and competitive appearance in every event we attend.
The New Era
With Dominique and Tristan’s focuses moving beyond late model racing we are now a full driver development/partnership team. For the young drivers lacking in experience we have the program to hone your skills and give you what you need for success achieving your goals. For the seasoned driver we can provided added resources, top of the line equipment, and some of the best people in the business whether you are looking for a full series schedule or just a single race event.
We are excited to announce we have partnered with Michael Clancy Jr for the 2017 Jegs All Star Tour season. He is a very talented young driver and we are looking forward to working with him this season!
