Johnny DeAngelis always wanted to be a race car driver as a young boy but found himself tied up in football, basketball, and baseball for Hartford High School. In 2009, at the age of 15, Johnny took the oppor­tunity to start his racing career at Slinger Super Speedway in Slinger, Wisconsin, in the Slinger Bee four-cylinder division. Capping off the 2009 season, Johnny finished 2nd in Slinger Bee points and also was awarded the Rookie of the Year honors.

Continuing his racing career in 2010, Johnny and his team stepped their program up by purchasing a limited late model. Going from a typ­ical street car to a full blown race car was a big step for Johnny but he took the reign and rounded out the season with a solid 8th place finish in the overall Slinger Limited Latemodel division point standings.

2011 marked new accomplishments for Johnny as he became the Slinger Nationals Limited Latemodel champion, along with winning several feature events throughout the season. The team traveled to new tracks and Johnny’s success began to grow. An even bigger year for Johnny and the entire JD Motorsports team was in 2012 as they participated in several shows with the Big 8 Series which trav­els across the Midwest. Johnny qualified into every Big 8 Series show they attended through his qualifying time and ended up finishing 19th out of 123 drivers in the 2012 point standings. 2013 was another good season for the team. Although, they fell short of a feature win from un­fortunate circumstances, they still pulled off a top 10 in overall point standings at every track and series they competed in! 2014 was a big step for the team as Johnny tackled the Rookie of the Year honors at Slinger Speedway in the Super Late Model division and won a Limited Latemodel event at the Dells Motor Speedway.
