DMA announced the appointment of David Sapp as its new assistant product manager.

During his tenure as an account manager at Auto Plus Auto Parts, Sapp significantly increased local accounts in the Chattanooga area, achieving a notable 15% year-over-year sales growth, DMA said in a news release.

His role as a broker account manager at Capital Waste Services saw him successfully elevate national brokerage accounts by 26% year-over-year and increase local sales in the Chattanooga/North Georgia markets by 18% year-over-year.

Sapp’s leadership as sales and marketing director at Ken Smith Auto Parts Inc. resulted in the development of the online sales program, increasing annual revenue from $600,000 in 2012 to $2.8 million in 2018, DMA noted.

Sapp holds an A.S. in Automotive Technology Management Services from the College of Central Florida in Ocala, Florida, and a bachelor’s in theology from CIMN in Santa Rosa Beach.

“David’s proficiency in product analytics, coupled with his hands-on experience in the industry, positions him as a valuable asset to our product development team,” stated Trevor Potter, DMA chief product & marketing officer.

      Brad Sweet and the
      link hidden, please login to view No. 49 team were poised to take on a busy week of High Limit Racing action, but Tuesday night’s event at Davenport Speedway in Iowa was rained out. That left two nights at I-70 Speedway in Odessa, Mo., on the schedule, and an opportunity for Sweet and the NAPA team to showcase their skills to fans and competitors alike. At the Rayce Rudeen Foundation event opener Friday night at I-70, Sweet posted the sixth-quickest time overall in qualifying with a lap of 13.768 seconds on the half-mile dirt oval. The Big Cat then dominated his heat race, taking the checkered flag and securing his spot in the FK Rod Ends Dash. With the help of his daughter Savannah, Sweet drew the third starting spot for the seven-lap dash to set the field for the evening’s feature. The NAPA driver held his ground to finish third, then lined up third for the feature. Sweet was able to pick up a spot in Friday’s main event. He crossed the line in the runner-up position.
      On Saturday night, Sweet was already locked into heat race competition thanks to his podium finish on Friday. The NAPA No. 49 was second across the line after starting fourth in the heat race. Sweet kept the energy level high in Saturday’s dash and finished third. The NAPA team went on to battle hard against tough competition in the main event. After a late-race caution, Sweet spun the tires on the restart and fell back to fifth. He maintained that position when the checkered flag flew.
      Despite the rain-out at Davenport, Sweet and the NAPA Auto Parts No. 49 team extended their points lead with the runner-up and top-five finishes. Sweet now leads the standings with a solid, 65-point advantage over second place. Eagle Raceway, a favorite from the 2023 season, is next on the schedule with a $55,000-to-win event.
      Start / Finish:
      Friday, June 7: 3 / 2
      Saturday, June 8: 3 / 5
      Points Standing / Total: 1st / 1,540 pts. (+65)

      With the High Limit Racing points lead in hand, Brad Sweet and the
      link hidden, please login to view No. 49 team had their eyes on victory at the renowned Port Royal Speedway when they  traveled to Pennsylvania for the Bob Weikert Memorial race. With weather dampening the festivities on Saturday night, Sweet and the NAPA team focused on Sunday’s main event, which boasted a $75,000 top prize. The No. 49 sprint car was strong in Sunday qualifying, securing the ninth-quickest time overall with a lap of 17.116 seconds. The heat race proved a challenge; Sweet finished sixth after starting fifth, missing the dash and locking into the main event. With an 18th-place starting spot in the feature, the NAPA team had a long climb ahead for a chance at victory. Port Royal proved a real challenge for the Big Cat, though. After 40 laps, Sweet could only maintain his spot to finish 18th.
      Although not the result the NAPA team was hoping for, Sweet took the experience as a learning opportunity for their return to Port Royal in the fall. The NAPA driver is now second in the High Limit Racing point standings, just one point shy of the leader.
      “It was a tough race, and the weather certainly added to the challenges, but I’m proud of the team’s effort,” said Sweet. “We’ll take what we learned here and come back stronger. The competition is fierce, and being just one point behind keeps us motivated to work even harder.”
      The team will compete tonight at Grandview Speedway before heading to Indiana.
      Start / Finish: 18 / 18
      Points Standing / Total: 2nd / 1,204 pts. (-1)
      Next Race: Tuesday, May 28, Grandview Speedway, Bechtelsville, PA

      Brad Sweet and the
      link hidden, please login to view No. 49 team found victory lane during a three-race week that spanned from Indiana to New York. It was at Outlaw Speedway in Dundee, New York, that Sweet earned the milestone win, but the High Limit Racing sprint car action started Tuesday night at Kokomo Speedway in Indiana. Sweet rolled into Kokomo and qualified sixth in Flight B with a lap time of 11.584 seconds. After maintaining his second-place starting spot at the completion of his heat race, the Big Cat transferred directly to the feature with a tenth-place starting spot. The NAPA Auto Parts No. 49 had speed in the 40-lap main event, and Sweet adeptly navigated through the field to secure a fifth-place finish.
      After the trip to New York, the NAPA team arrived at Outlaw Speedway on Thursday ready to continue their forward momentum. Sweet started the night by clocking the quickest lap of Flight B qualifying with a time of 12.971 seconds. The NAPA driver went on to start fourth and maintain his spot at the end of his heat race. With a spot in the dash, Sweet had an opportunity to improve his starting position in the evening’s feature. He ended up fifth to start the seven-lap dash and moved up to third, setting the stage for an exciting main event.
      After starting from third, Sweet strategically maneuvered the NAPA Auto Parts No. 49 sprint car to the front, ultimately taking the checkered flag and securing Sweet’s first-ever win in the state of New York. The victory marked the sixth High Limit Racing win of the season for the NAPA team.
      On Friday night, Sweet and the No. 49 crew stayed in the Empire State and visited Utica-Rome Speedway. The No. 49 was fourth in Flight A qualifying with a lap time of 17.488 seconds. Sweet started on the pole of his heat race but fell back to second on the slick racing surface. After missing the dash again, Sweet lined up ninth for the evening’s feature. Despite the challenges of starting mid-pack, the NAPA driver hustled through the field to secure a solid sixth-place result.
      Start / Finish:
      Tuesday, May 14, Kokomo Speedway: 10 / 5
      Thursday, May 16, Outlaw Speedway: 3 / 1
      Friday, May 17, Utica-Rome Speedway: 9 / 6
