Racing career[edit]

Mader competed in ten NASCAR Winston Cup (now Sprint Cup Series) races between 1988 and 1992, including leading seven laps at Martinsville Speedway in 1992.[1] In the Busch Series, he raced in 22 events between 1986 and 1992, with nine Top 10 finishes.[1] He raced in two Craftsman Truck Series events in 1998.[1]

In his career, Dave has raced Southern All Star, Sunoco, ASA, NASCAR Late Model Stock, All Pro, NASCAR All - American Challenge, ARCA, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, Winston Cup, and Busch Series.

He has accumulated 224 feature wins. He also competed in 1992 running of The Winston, driving the No. 9 car which was in the race as a winning team, thanks to Bill Elliott winning in 1991.
