Dirt Modified Racecar Driver Erik Renninger is a Sportsman Driver at Dirt Tracks in NJ and PA.
Erik is a second-generation driver that started racing at the age of 5 at the Lehigh Valley Quarter Midget Club with his father Wayne.
Racing started at an early age for the Renninger men. With Wayne, his first experience was at Dorney Park, at the age of six. Wayne went to watch his uncle at Dorney Park who was the head mechanic on his cousins Wally Smith's #44 coupe. Wally was running in the Sportsman Division at the time.
From that night on Wayne was hooked on racing
Throughout his adolescence, Wayne spoke highly of racing recalling his earliest memories at Dorney Park in Allentown, PA. One memory was a rainy day in 1973 when Wayne finally got into a racecar for the very first time.
