Folks from Oklahoma City love to boast that their street racers are some of the fastest in America. One of these folks is Daddy Dave, a racer known for his souped-up Goliath Chevy Nova and for being featured on the Discovery Channel reality show Street Outlaws. Long before he entered the world of reality TV though, Daddy Dave was already burning serious rubber in the street racing scene.
Want to know more about Daddy Dave? Well, you’ve come to the right place!
Daddy Dave: Drag Racing Pro and Street Outlaws Star
Born Dave Comstock in 1973, Daddy Dave began street racing when he was in his late teens, getting his start by driving his dad’s 1978 Chevy Impala at the age of 16.
Dave’s interest in racing eventually evolved into a successful career. By 2009, he was racing his 1996 GMC Sonoma S10 pickup truck on another reality TV show called Pinks. That’s right around the time he met Justin Shearer, aka Big Chief, and soon after, they were both starring in Street Outlaws together. Due to his absolute domination in street race after street race, he eventually earned himself the title of “King of the Streets.”
Jackie Knox, a construction mogul, funded Daddy Dave’s racing career until an accident which resulted in a serious concussion in Texas.
His nitrous-fueled Goliath 1, a 1963 Chevy Nova, was destroyed in the 2015 wreck that almost took his life. He parted ways with his bankroller Knox after the accident, but didn’t give up on racing.
Soon after his accident, he began work on the Goliath 2.0, rocking a twin-turbo setup that makes it an absolute beast on the strip.
What Is Daddy Dave’s Net Worth?
According to most sources, Daddy Dave Comstock has an estimated net worth of $1 million, making around $20,000 for every episode of Street Outlaws. The husband to Cassie and father of two has also been raking in serious dough behind the wheel of the Goliath 2.0. Good luck out there, Dave!
