Dave raced in Corvettes, Cobras, NASCAR and the Indy 500 during the glory days of racing - the early 1960's. He drove all of Carroll Shelby's legendary Cobras - Cobra Roadster, King Cobra, Cobra Daytona Coupe and King Cobra-Lang Cooper to their first ever victories. While Dave's racing career lasted less than five years, his impact on American racing history is significant. Dave competed in a total of 115 races with 47 victories and 69 Top 3 finishes and his star was on a meteoric ascent when he suddenly, tragically, lost his life in the 1964 Indianapolis 500. He was just 27 years old.

Dave MacDonald was respected among his peers for his remarkable driving ability and by all who knew him for his dedication to his family.

This site contains more than 1000 vintage videos, photos, magazine articles and news clippings documenting nearly every race in Dave's brilliant career, some covered in lap by lap detail. Also get a glimpse of the family man behind the driver in Dave's Family Photos section. DaveMacDonald.net is dedicated with love to Dave, his wife Sherry and their children Rich and Vicki.
