About Sams LaMountain Racing
Sams LaMountain Racing, Inc. started through divine intervention. Meeting briefly in March 2019, a relationship was in the making.
Karen and Steve LaMountain have loved racing all their lives.
Steve has been involved in car racing at competitive levels at a very young age. Introduced to the sport by a close neighbor and family friend he was hooked. Many evenings after dinner were spent at the garage where he learnt every aspect of a race car from the ground up.
Karen at a young age attended sprint car races with family a native of Wagga Wagga, NSW Australia. Karen was hooked on racing the very first time she attended a sprint car race at Wagga International Speedway in Yarragundry, New South Wales Australia and has been a fan ever since.
Meeting Danny Sams III brought back great family memories that rekindled a deep interest to move forward and get back to their roots. Steve said this is not by accident or coincidence but meant to be.
A partnership opportunity would bring both families closer to their passion for racing. From there, Sams LaMountain Racing was formed.
Prior to SLR being formed, Danny had been known as D3 Racing, LLC. He started his racing career at the early age of 4 ½. Quarter midget racing is where he formed his love for the sport. Starting in Tampa, FL, Danny and his Father “Danny Jr” began their journey learning the ropes of driver and crew chief. Traveling the United States with USAC .25 Midgets, Danny won several championships. “D3” started his dirt track career racing go carts around the state of Florida winning two consecutive points championships. Continuing the dirt track path, mini sprints was next on the ladder. Danny became Rookie of the Year and Points Champion for the Florida Mini Sprints Association. The following year he began to race sprint cars with USCS and was Rookie of the Year and finished 3rd in the National points. Since then he has traveled with USCS and most recently ran with Great Lakes Super Sprints where he earned a 4th place in points for 2018.
2019 is a year of change! The Sams and LaMountain Families have been blessed beyond all measure. Everyone at SLR is excited to see what God has in store for us!
