LOGAN — One man who has enjoyed living in the fast world of racing has gained inspiration from his family to re-enter the scene after a long hiatus from it.
Mark Dinslage, of Fremont, Neb., plans to begin racing again in the next month.
And Mark’s “support system,” his two granddaughters Kaiya (14) and Kendyll (11) Knauss, are a major reason for his decision. The two girls are the children of Paul and Jessie Knauss, of Logan.
“It means a tremendous amount to me that they’re at the track not only just being there, but actually enthusiastically enjoying and cheering me on,” said Dinslage.
Since Dinslage was a child, he has enjoyed cars, racing and has always had a need for speed.
As an adult, he continues to enjoy both very much. But as of late, in the past five years, he has not been racing as much.
In 2018, Dinlage’s wife passed away. Shortly after that, he lost a best friend and Navy “brother,” whom he said he stood shoulder to shoulder and traveled the world with while they served their country.
