WAYNE “DAKOTA” BUCHOLZ

Born and raised in rural North Dakota, my father worked for several dealerships as an Auto Body Technician. I naturally followed being involved with cars. Older hot rods and snowmobiles held a particular interest for me. Racing was a natural extension, first snowmobiles and later at my local dirt track. I excelled both as a driver and as an official.

Moving to Boston held several opportunities for me in Seekonk, Massachusetts, and Thompson, Connecticut, where I was a test driver for several teams in the Late Model and Modified Divisions. Moving from Boston to Colorado has now brought me full circle to running my own Stock car team back on the dirt.

LAURA CROSS

Born in Massachusetts, but grew up here in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I followed my father's career path into the Air Force and became an aircraft electrician. My boyfriend, Dakota and I met three years ago and learned a lot about racing. I helped form Dakota Racing last year, and still crew chief the #84 stock car. I have always been behind the scenes for Dakota Racing, and this year I am going to find out if I can race as well.
