"I'm really happy to be back at the races and to be riding for D&D Cycles with Rob Mclendon as my tuner. I have put in a lot of work during the off season by doing more riding, and stepping up my training. I'm very grateful to have support from the people in my corner and on my team."


"Dalton called up late last year wanting to get back on track," said Rob Mclendon of D&D Cycles. "We made a deal that if he gave me 110%, I would do the same and take him racing. I’ve never seen a rider more motivated to get back on track and get back to winning. We couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunity to return to American Flat Track."
