2023 marks the 47th anniversary of Douthit Motorsports, Inc. in the racing exhibition business racing Jet Cars and Wheelstanders! We have entertained fans all over the globe, including Japan, Curacao, Mexico, Canada and the U.S.
In 1976, "Smokey" Joe Douthit introduced the family's first exhibition cara Wheelstander, named Smokey Red. It was a gorgeous, Candy Apple Red,1968 Nova (See photo in photos). In 1985, the California Smokey Jet Dragster came onto the scene.This year, we have come full circle and have added a new wheelstander to the mix, and we are excited to show it off this summer! We are a complete show with two jet funny cars and a wheelstander!
We are David and Robyn Douthit.We were born and raised in San Diego, CA. Our daughter Kathryn (2011), is learning the business while attending online classes, and has already informed us of her plans to follow in her father's and grandfather's footsteps!
Our second driver, for the 2024 season is TBA!
We look forward running in a city near you! Make sure you stop in and say Hi!
