Charlie is one of Dina’s three brothers and is our go to man. He and Andrew work on the motors between rounds and Charlie keeps track of what has been done and what needs to be done. “Uncle Mel “ (as we call him) is our eyes and ears at the track.
Butch is an electrician by trade. When not working, he attends the races with the DPR team. His duties include everything from set up to tear down and much in-between. He works closely with Andrew Parise between rounds servicing Stella.
Having formerly worked at Virginia Motorsports Park, Butch is well versed in everything from track prep to safety. The team thanks him for dedicating his time.
