Walden Jumps Behind Wheel of MB
Customs Machine for 2021 Campaign!
1, 2021) After the last several seasons of piloting
the same family-owned MasterSbilt racecar, Donny Walden and his
#1w team were able to update their program over the off-season
with the purchase of a brand-new MB Customs racecar. Prepared
with the help of fellow Bloomington, Illinois driver Jason Feger,
who is the proprietor of Hustler Speed Shop, Donny is excited
about the car and ready for his 2021 campaign to begin.
"It has been several years since I have been this excited
to get back racing again," quoted Walden on obtaining the
new racecar. "For the first time in over a decade, we are
going to fire off with a brand new car, a fresh engine under the
hood, and a new shock program!"
Walden Racing unfortunately came up just shy in getting the new
ride ready for this weekend's annual 'Illini 100' at Farmer City
Raceway. However, the team plans to start their 2021 season next
Friday, April 9 in a weekly DIRTcar Super Late Model program at
the Farmer City, Illinois oval. They are then slated to invade
Peoria Speedway in Peoria, Illinois on Saturday, April 10, as
the MARS Racing Series will preside over a $5,000 to win shootout.

"I feel that the MB Customs brand is going to be a great
fit with my driving style and the timing was right to make the
change now," Walden went on to say. "Having Jason (Feger)
- who lives five minutes down the road from me - and Billy (Drake)
nearby as well, it will be helpful to have their collective input
on things when needed. Both Feger and Drake have been good in
MB Customs stuff throughout Illinois the last two seasons, so
I'm excited to turn laps in one as well!"
When asked how this chassis change all came about Donny said,
"Jimmy (Mars) and his guys in Menomonie, Wisconsin build
a great piece first and foremost. With Jason stepping up to make
this deal happen and helping in getting the car assembled, I will
be forever grateful. Jason is no stranger to my family, as he
worked for Walden Automotive & Tire for several years before
leaving to pursue a full-time racing career. I look forward to
working closely with him and hopefully all of us in MB cars in
central Illinois will have great seasons."
