At the time of his retirement in 2005, Busse was the 39th in career victories for a driver. RIP.
Daryl Busse, 67, for many years a leading driver-trainer both nationally and in Illinois, died Thursday evening, Oct. 8, at home, following a lengthy illness. Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.
Mr. Busse, a native of Wisconsin, entered the sport by working for his father, Don, and the pair are noted to have been the only father and son who have won North American dash titles as drivers, Daryl in 1975 and his father in 1963. The elder Busse died in 1970.
In his driving career, which ended in 2005, Mr. Busse won 5,651 races and drove the winners of $30,331,095.
